White House misses senator's deadline on prostitution scandal

(CNN) - The White House has ignored a deadline to provide answers to a senior Senate Republican about the Secret Service prostitution scandal, an aide to Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said Friday.

Grassley wants details about an internal administration investigation into any possible role that White House advance staff members may have had in the incident.

    Grassley needs to take a long walk off a short pier. Bigot. Imbecile. Ideologue. BOUGHT. The guy even tried to start crap about the women involved in the scandal being "Russian spies." CNN won't report that part because hey're protecting him from looking as bigotted, imbecilic, inane and BOUGHT as he truly is. He's a walking piece of congressional garbage who has been in the throes of an inconsolable temper tantrum ever since he realized he'd have to refer to a black dude as Mr. President.

    Grassley really need to focus on his one man boycott of Coca Cola for dumping Chuck's money machine, ALEC. Ever wonder if Coke uses corn syrup from Iowa in making their soft drinks? Grassley is an Idiot.

    looks like the WH is taking a page from dead eye dick cheney who used to blow off subpoenas about as often as a chain smoker lights up. Good for them for FINALLY growing a pair and standing up to the thugs!

    He has no power to demand or force the WH to produce or do anything. Period. The best he can hope for is a subpoena to be issued by the Judiciary Committee. Fat lots of luck with that, Assley.

    Unless Judiciary Committee Democrats agreed to subpoena the information, which is unlikely in this political climate, Grassley may have only his ability to stir a public outcry to get the White House to answer his questions.

    Yeah, because the WH has nothing else to do than chase its tail. Why isn't congress inviting the head of the Secret Service to have a nice little chat with him? Oh, that's right – he's a holdover from the previous occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He and every Secret Service agent who has worked for the agency for more than 4 years needs to be fired with a loss of all benefits, and be barred from holding any government job ever again. They're either incompetent or their seething hatred for President Obama has compromised their sensibilities to the point that they're incapable of doing their jobs and could have quite possibly endangered him.

    Coca Cola should use cane sugar at their American plants like they do everywhere else in the world.

    Obama and his adminstration have openly violated laws and their oath of office on a daily basis. End the lawlessness, throw Obama out in November.

    The head of SS was from a previos admin. Demand that he show up. I don't believe a lowly senator has the power or the right to demand that the President of the U.S. do anything.

    The White House has done exactly what they should do. Ignore the spoiled child who is saying – "You pay attention to me or I'll hold my breath and stamp my feet until you take me seriously!". He has an over inflated sense of his own importance.

    Obama prefers to do his politicking on late nite TV and infomercials. He shows up on time when he gets to be a celebrity.

    Probably the White House is doing internal invesitgating and will find lots of activities of this kind during the last administration that they can bring to light. Didn't Bush appoint the head of the Secret Sercice duing his term? Don't worry. This kind of activity did not just happen a couple of weeks ago. Heads will roll from years back. Wait and see.
