Secret Service scandal spreads to second hotel
April 22, 2012 6:17 PM -- CBS (includes a video report)


Now it is being reported that somebody brought "a woman" to the same hotel in Columbia that Obama himself stayed at 5 days later !!!

A bit of a security risk perhaps ?????



(CBS News) Suspicion is spreading in the Secret Service scandal beyond the agents in just one Colombian hotel.

CBS News correspondent Whit Johnson reports that a law enforcement official told CBS News that the latest agent under investigation brought a woman back to the Hilton Hotel in Cartagena, Columbia, just five days before President Barack Obama would be staying there.

Until now, the Hotel Caribe had been the focus of the scandal, where the other 22 members of the Secret Service and military accused of inappropriate behavior were checked in.



Senator Joe Lieberman is "looking" .......

"Now you're into the hotel where the President of the United States was going to stay, and it just gets more troubling," Sen. Joe Lieberman said on "Face the Nation."

Lieberman is now joining some of his Senate colleagues like Republican Chuck Grassley who are also calling for a broader investigation into whether White House staffers could have been involved.

While the scandal is getting a lot of attention on Capitol Hill, when asked directly, most lawmakers have voiced support for the way Secret Service director Mark Sullivan has handled the fall-out.



Was there a "Plot" ??

and to think, all this unravelled because they kicked a ho out the hotel door with 18 pesos because they didn't agree with the price of her services.

which according to reports was $800 u.s.

you gotta love the secret service and americans in general. she was a piece of tail too.

This entire thing is too stupid for words. But I'll try some. A secret service guy who is on his own time (although they should keep the phone on to get emergency calls) should be able to hang out with anyone they want to. Some of them brought (or bought) friends to their room. So????

And $800 was way too much, she was trying to rip off the agents. Not fair! The only controversy here is that the agent should have known her price beforehand, so he's not too smart in this situation.

Prostitution is legal in Columbia. Nobody did anything wrong.

Had to get a chuckle out of the title:
" Secret Service scandal spreads to second hotel"

I hope it's not contagious! LOL...

Seriously, it is quite a mess they've gotten themselves into. Any idea whether they were on duty or off? If they were on duty, I get the fall out. Yet if they were OFF duty, well then, other than making a spectacle out of themselves, I don't really see the issue. Yes, it's embarrassing, but on their own time, they should be able to indulge in some pleasure if it doesn't leave them zonked out. That being said, if they WERE on duty, well now, that's horse of a different color all together. Of course, since that happened under Obama's time, the media will run with it like there's no tomorrow. Oh well, I hope it was worth it. Heads are a rollin'...

Actually the price was agreed upon prior to the "party"...


The woman's account of the night at the Pley Club, described as a high-end strip club in an industrial part of Cartagena, sheds more light on the events that led to the public outing of the military and Secret Service personnel.

According to the prostitute's account, the Americans bought bottles of vodka to share with a group of women they approached in the club.

"They never told me they were with Obama," she told the newspaper, adding: "They were very discreet."

In an interview with the New York Times, the unnamed woman said the US agent had agreed a price of $800 for a night with her.

But he changed his mind in the morning, she said, offering just $30 and sparking a furious row that ended with police being asked to intervene.

He was probably to drunk to remember. Or maybe she wasn't all " that". Or being as they were drinking, maybe she figured he was wasted enough not to remember the deal. All in all, it should have been handled better by the men and not let it escalate like it has. Juicy gossip is all it is..... enough for them to get fired though.

Good news: the white house investigation declares the white innocent in the secret service scandal!


The investigation began on Friday, was completed within 72 hours, and Carney won’t get into details. Sounds legit:


hotair.com...

Was there any doubt? the white house is innocent of everything.

A Republican senator is raising the possibility that Colombian prostitutes who reportedly had sex with members of the U.S. Secret Service could have actually been Russian spies. “We’re looking at something that is very, very serious when national security might not be protected properly,” Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said today in a conference call with reporters. “Who knows who might be using prostitutes? The Russians are famous for that to get information out of us. You want to know that the president is protected.”
