The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has counseled or disciplined 24 employees who accessed pornographic sites on government computers between 2005 and 2010 as the financial system teetered and almost collapsed.
A federal judge has ruled in favor of protecting the identities of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission employees caught surfing for pornography on their government computers, saying privacy interests win over the public's right to know.
"This isn't a moral crusade, what people do on their own time is their business," Evans said. "But spending hours doing this at work? I don't know how they could do their jobs... I consider it fraud."
Evans, a white-collar and regulatory defense attorney in private practice, said he requested the documents on his own behalf after first learning of the OIG's report last spring.
