City Councilman and declared 2013 comptroller candidate Dan Garodnick picks up on a Daily News story of pension workers looking at porn while at work and asks whether there might be a bigger problem there.

In a May 7 letter to the executive director of the New York City Police Pension fund, Garodnick wrote that the allegations "raise questions about the security of the nearly 80,000 pension fund participants' personal information, such as Social Security numbers and bank account information … the risk of a security breach for our City computers is heightened when employees access websites for purposes other than work."

The current city comptroller, John Liu, has indicated he will vacate the office in order to run for mayor next year. There is an ongoing federal probe into his campaign's fund-raising activities.
