Secret Service Scandal Deepens

South America, prostitutes, secret services agents, and now throw in some military guys, too. After 11 secret service agents were placed on leave in Colombia after allegations that they brought several prostitutes back to their hotel in Cartagena during President Obama's trip there, the military said five of its service members may have been involved in the episode as well. Government sources confirm there was a dispute between one secret service agent and a prostitute, while one woman filed a complaint with the police—and the entire unit has been pulled. Prostitution is legal in pockets of Colombia, though the Secret Service considers it inappropriate—and some of the agents are married. In the last year, there were two other incidents with the Secret Service: a murder charge and a DUI.
