The SEC Take Their Vendetta With Egan-Jones To The Next Level


This is so pathetic, it is beyond words:

  • US SEC EXPECETED TO VOTE ON POSSIBLE CHARGES AGAINST RATING FIRM EGAN JONES ON THURSDAY
  • POSSIBLE CHARGES STEM FROM ALLEGED WILFUL MISTATEMENTS ON EGAN JONES’ REGULATORY APPLICATION WITH SEC

If nothing else, it explains the recent WSJ hit piece against Egan, just so it can make the public record in the SEC documentation. In other news, this will surely teach any other rating agency to downgrade the US not once (ahead of everyone else, well the S&P), but twice (and JP Morgan too).

In the meantime, the SEC still has NO IDEA what the definition of liquidity is, and continues to refuse to take ANY action against High Frequency Trading, to press criminal charges against ANY banker, or for that matter, to do anything that may jeopardize its staffers future careers as 7th assistant general council at assorted bailed out Wall Street firms.

Now we wait to hear news that Fitch and Moody’s will receive a cash bonus from the SEC for not downgrading the US properly filing their
regulatory applications.

And now back to midget porn.

One senior attorney at SEC headquarters in Washington spent up to eight hours a day accessing Internet porn, according to the report, which has yet to be released. When he filled all the space on his government computer with pornographic images, he downloaded more to CDs and DVDs that accumulated in boxes in his offices.

An SEC accountant attempted to access porn websites 1,800 times in a two-week period and had 600 pornographic images on her computer hard drive.

Another SEC accountant used his SEC-issued computer to upload his own sexually explicit videos onto porn websites he joined.

And another SEC accountant attempted to access porn sites 16,000 times in a single month.

In one case, the report noted, an employee tried hundreds of times to access pornographic sites and was denied access. When he used a flash drive, he successfully bypassed the filter to visit a “significant number” of porn sites.

The employee also said he deliberately disabled a filter in Google to access inappropriate sites. After management informed him that he would lose his job, the employee resigned.

A similar SEC report for October 2008 to March 2009 said that a regional supervisor inLos Angeles accessed and attempted to access pornographic and sexually explicit Web sites up to twice a day from his SEC computer during work hours.

Porn Problem Began as Economy Collapsed

The report concluded that most of the cases began in 2008, just as the financial system began to collapse, and the problem hasn’t stopped.

The most recent case cited in the report occurred four weeks ago.

“Trust me, these guys are addicts,” said Mike Leahy, author of the book “Porn Nation.”

“This isn’t going to end until you know someone really puts a stop to it.”
