Secret Service Allegedly Bought Prostitutes In Colombia

This is not the way I like to say hello to a Monday morning. But, it’s politics…
President Obama dashed off to South America over the weekend for the Summit of the Americas in Cartegena, Colombia. Ahead of his arrival, Secret Service agents and military personnel who were planning for his security found some trouble to get into themselves.
Eleven Secret Service agents and five U.S. troops are accused of buying the services of several prostitutes in Cartegena. The agents were sent home and put on administrative leave pending investigation by the head of the Secret Service.
The Secret Service personnel and troops were caught when one of the prostitutes wouldn’t leave the room at the Hotel Carïbe the morning after her “services.” She claimed the men still owed her money. I read somewhere that it was around $47 or so. What in all hell…..?
President Obama was clearly no fan of whatever stupidity went on at the hotel in Cartagena.
“I expect that investigation to be thorough and I expect it to be rigorous. If it turns out that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then of course I’ll be angry,” the president said in remarks about the incident. [SOURCE]
Prostitution is legal in some parts of Colombia. However, in keeping with American standards and basic home training, personnel representing the U.S. aren’t allowed to engage in those activities. They are supposed to act the same way when they visit as they do when at home .. if you get my drift.
Since this is the biggest scandal to ever hit the Secret Service, one can only imagine that the total repercussions haven’t been felt yet.

What do you think of the prostitution scandal that hit the U.S. Secret Service from their Colombia visit?
