Legislator: Secret Service to change its rules

(CNN) - Secret Service agents on the job will no longer be allowed to go to places of "bad acts" or bring foreigners to their hotel rooms. The new rules come in response to the scandal over alleged hiring of prostitutes in Colombia, a legislator said after speaking to agency Director Mark Sullivan.

"If this is the culture, then they want to immediately put it to rest," Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, said Thursday night on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront," after meeting with Sullivan about the controversy that has embarrassed the 147-year-old agency and raised questions about possible security breaches.

    So if they are just now changing "the rules" it is very apparent that the SS Agents did nothing wrong and are being persecuted by Congress and the media.

    "Apparently" not to anyone but you. Your words only makes sense if one takes into account that they do not make any sense.

    They need to investigate Sheila Jackson Lee for being such a wing nut. Houston can do better.
