US Secret Service agents who were sent to Columbia ahead of President Barack Obama to apparently ensure security were sent back home due to allegations of misconduct.  What type of misconduct you asked?  Well, the agents were allegedly seeking the companion of prostitutes.   Gasp.  Apparently 1 of the 12 agents did not pay for ‘services’ and the prostitute in question complained to the police. [Insert joke here].

The allegations involved prostitution, according to Ronald Kessler, a former Washington Post reporter and author of “In the President’s Secret Service: Behind the Scenes With Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect.”

Calling it “clearly the biggest scandal in Secret Service history,” Kessler said 12 agents are accused of involvement in the incident “in one degree or another,” from allegedly interfering in the investigation to participating in other alleged misconduct.

The president arrived in the Colombian coastal resort city Friday, a visit that will mark the most time a U.S. president has spent in that country, where security concerns had limited previous presidential trips. source
