While the economy was in freefall, an attorney at the SEC had a crisis of a different kind: his work computer had run out of room for his porn stash.

Thankfully, this was more easily solved than the mystery of Madoff’s returns. The SEC headquarters senior attorney, who spent up to eight hours a day surfing porn sites at work according to a recent SEC inspector general report, is a problem solver. He started downloading his porn directly to CDs and DVDs that he kept stored in boxes in his office. SEC attorneys know how to get the job done!

He was not the only SEC employee obsessing over porn while the economy was being raped. Bess Levin has a whole collection of anecdotes from the Office of the Inspector General report, over at sister site Dealbreaker.

Can you blame them for turning to sites like “www.ladyboyx.com, www.ladyboyjuice.com, www.trannytit.com, and www.anal-sins.com”? They weren’t having much luck nailing economic criminals after all…

The Washington Post points out that many federal workers have a penchant for porn consumption at work. Ed O’Keefe namechecks the National Science Foundation, the National Park Service, and Ninth Circuit judge Alex Kozinski. Though we would note that Judge Kozinski’s collection of inappropriate images was more puerile than prurient — he was later cleared of misconduct.

There’s nothing wrong with looking at porn. At the right time, at the right place. If you’re working til midnight with only a sushi dinner for company, we wouldn’t begrudge your turning off your office lights, setting your Blackberry to vibrate, and finding out what LadyBoyJuice has to offer. But c’mon, we know SEC attorneys are leaving work by 6 p.m. They’ve got plenty of free time for their porn fixes. A government attorney has no excuse for wanking during work hours.

But according to the porn probe report, there were other attorneys at the SEC who took XXX breaks regularly. Read on at Dealbreaker.
