WSJ: Secret Service Prostitution Scandal Widens


Wall Street Journal – The Secret Service is investigating allegations that 11 agents on President Barack Obama’s security detail to Colombia brought prostitutes back to their hotel rooms, in a widening scandal that may also involve five military service personnel, officials said Saturday.

The Secret Service agents were caught when one of the women stayed in an agent’s room past 7 a.m., in violation of hotel policy, said Rep. Peter King (R., N.Y.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, which oversees the Secret Service.
