Certainly can't believe that would be the issue here.
This is a federal agency we are dealing with. It is entirely possible that it is. Until we know for sure, which is hopefully next week, the gist of the reasons for the suspension, speculation will continue.
Just remember our Federal government SEC was recently exposed as having workers watching porn at work. http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/sec-pornography-employees-spent-hours-surfing-porn-sites/story?id=10452544#.UF5W1FFIWs0[/tag]
This is an election year, we are months away. How do these headlines grab you:
"SEC Enforcement results in LARGEST number of suspensions".
or better yet:
"Administration serious about tackling WALL STREET Corruption, SEC leads the way".
Our Govt. is corrupt on the highest and lowest levels.
I actually work in municipal government (<<<<----shameful admission) and the horrors of bureaucracy are real. Having come from a private sector job before this though, I try to make it a good experience for those that I interact with, and, largely I do. I have also tried to make some institutional changes, in the capacity that I can affect change, and while I have, it is not easy and not quick.
Should be an interesting week.
