Moral Hazard at NSF

Oh my!
For instance, one senior executive spent at least 331 days looking at pornography on his government computer and chatting online with nude or partially clad women without being detected, the records show.
Investigators put the cost to taxpayers of the senior official's porn surfing at between $13,800 and about $58,000.

Evidently, he was not alone
The problems at the National Science Foundation (NSF) were so pervasive they swamped the agency's inspector general and forced the internal watchdog to cut back on its primary mission of investigating grant fraud and recovering misspent tax dollars.
