House Republican calls for Secret Service director resignation

Washington (CNN) - Virginia GOP Rep. Randy Forbes on Wednesday became the first member of Congress to call for U.S. Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan to step down due to a prostitution scandal involving eleven agents that has raised questions about security at the agency.

"There are only so many strikes you get - in baseball it's three," Forbes told CNN. "I think (Sullivan's) had three. I think it's time to put somebody else in there to make sure we're getting a different culture in the Secret Service."

    So you can't blame the director because some of his agents act like whores.

    Using her model we should fire Speaker "Boner". The House has produced nothing and even caused America's bond rating to be lowered. They've done nothing but obstruct progress with their Tea Party nonsense. We should therefore fire the Speaker of the House.
