In playing devils advocate after 23 years of service, it's possible for someone to actually have their own opinions.

What everyone is overlooking is that for 23 years she HAS been willing to "take a bullet".
While I agree the Job entails being apolitical I also think reassignment to another facet of Secret Service work may be warranted depending on her service record.

One lapse of judgement based on that doesn't necessarily deserve firing.
Her making her personal opinion public on social media, depending on the Secret services Social Media policy probably will result in sanctions. Mostly it's bad optics regarding foreign & domestic policy that "can" give the impression that more employees feel the same way which may or may not be the case.

We don't know her service record, we don't actually know much other than she had a personal opinion and expressed it rather inappropriately.

I have always imagined that to take the position of SS or being selected for that position, your bias, would not allow you to advertise or act upon your personal thoughts particularly when in comes to protecting the POTUS.

Quit your job before it comes to that then relay your thoughts.

That would make more of a statement than broadcasting your personal beliefs whilst in the job.

Looking for sympathy?

In saying that, who can trust her anymore. Even if she expresses regret. Tragic. Her choice.

Job description, not only the POTUS but her work partners and the voting public rely on her.

bally.

Nah. She is not part of the local security team in Benghazi.

I'd make her catch a couple bullets. Then fire her.

Kerry O'Grady.



ETA: appropriate action is being taken.

If she felt that strongly, she should have quit the service, or asked for a transfer to another branch of the intelligence and security services, one which would not require her to interact with, or protect with her own body, the person of the President of the United States from direct and imminent attack.

There are lots of job roles in the wider services she would have been qualified for, I am sure.

Her stupidity has brought her career to a halt if she stays or is permitted to stay. A reassignment with demotion should help her decide what she wants to do. Being a coffee gopher for less experienced agents would be just reward for her ploy to curry favor with the assumed victor. Had she really believed her statement, she could have just "slipped" instead of defending the President's life. No need to broadcast it to the world and potential assassins. This was a butt kiss for her presumed boss.

I don't know about fired, the Secret Service does have positions other than a Presidential security detail but if you're working security you need to be able to put personal feelings aside. Her job would be to protect the President, with her life as necessary. If she's not willing to do that, she shouldn't have that job.

But again, this story is from October of last year, before Trump was even elected. I'm not sure how it's an issue at this point.

I have to wonder about people now a days.. and wonder if I was perhaps born on another planet. I cant stand Obama.. or Hillary.. yet Id take a bullet for them for the greater good of my beloved country and duty as far as my job.. if they were president. There is no question in me on that.. it would be automatic. I truly cant understand the mindset of a person who is good enough to be SS yet cant perform.. WONT perform the duty of the job regardless of their own personal opinions!

We can't trust her to. It's that simple.

Her job is to protect the President. No where in the job description is there any proviso saying "until such time as you disagree with policy." She doesn't get to backtrack on this one.

The Secret Service is reportedly "taking appropriate action" after news broke that O’Grady had made the comments in an October Facebook post. The agency did not say if O’Grady, who is in charge of the Denver office, could be disciplined or even fired, but her comments may be in violation of The Hatch Act. That 1939 law bars certain federal employees from engaging in political activity to promote fairness and nonpartisanship within the workplace.



“At her level, she is special agent in charge of Denver, she has a couple hundred people working under her including agents, technicians, and officers,” he said. “Her job is to run the office, but to provide the manpower if the President comes to Colorado.

If she made these comments just to her friends, that is personal. But if you state that publicly, like she did on Facebook, she should be removed from the position.

“I cannot tell you how bad that is,” he added.


The Secret Service know, and she is in big trouble.

What a POS. Do your job. Also dont be a retard. If you are a secret service agent dont post online that you will not fulfill your mission.

For stupidity alone, FIRE her.

I'm sorry, but this is not right if she keeps her position. I loathe this idiot in charge, but she has a SWORN DUTY. If she no longer believes in a sworn duty, she should at minimum be relived of any armed positions. If the SS wants to keep her in some desk job and she can handle that, I would accept that. But hate or love the guy, you swore an oath to serve and protect the POTUS. Your politics DO NOT MATTER.

As a veteran 2W2 (nuclear warhead specialist) I can tell you that it does not work this way in high level duties. I actually was able to witness this first hand in 2005. An Airman 1st Class was having a crap day and had mentioned to his SSgt that he does not think he feels appropriate working on nuclear weapons anymore as they are capable of indiscriminately killing millions. There was about 5 minutes of discussion and the Airman was walked out the door. No stopping, he never again entered the gates. His locker was emptied and brought to his house.

Look if someone was a cook in the Air Force, or pest controller, or something like that and they had some momentary feelings of "I don't want this anymore," then yes...talk to them, make sure it isn't a bad day, etc. But protecting warheads and especially the POTUS, who even the best have had daily or near daily death threats...you don't get a second chance.

period

I am as progressive as it gets. Gays in the military? hell yes. Women on the front line? ASAP...do it. Tell the SS you no longer believe you can protect the POTUS? You're done...go man a desk.
