Ousted Secret Service agent posted pictures of Sarah Palin on Facebook

Washington (CNN) - As officials warn of more Secret Service resignations as soon as Friday stemming from a prostitute scandal in Colombia, one of the former agents allegedly involved joked on Facebook that he checked out former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin while on assignment during the 2008 campaign.

David Chaney and Greg Stokes are the two Secret Service supervisors no longer with the agency in the wake of the incident immediately preceding President Barack Obama's trip to Colombia for the Summit of the Americas, a source familiar with the investigation told CNN National Security Contributor Fran Townsend on Thursday.

    This picture of Sarah made me put on a smile on my face this early Friday morning. Who are those people she is wearing on those badges?? I just noticed today that Sarah went rogue long time ago before anyone noticed it!

    It's tough to figure out who's the bigger idiot – Palin or the agent. Nah. It's still Palin.

    Thank God for President Obama, or this along with the GSA scandal would have continued to be swept under the rug. "That One" being in the WH is forcing congress to deal with decades-long problems, but their efforts to make it a President Obama problem won't fly. This incident from 2008 alone is indicative that a problem has existed long before President Obama's time.

    Of course rather than run a story about the hypocrisy of Debbie Wasserman Schultz in demeanding Romenys tax returns or the stupidity of Biden calling Al Franken a legal genius, CNN Political Ticker strives to appease its hateful, drug addicted, welfare fraud supporters by giving them a chance to demeand and degrade Sarah Palin so they can feel somehow righteous about their NEA sponsored dumbing down.

    So the Republican who said President Obama was to blame for what the Secret Service guys did in Colombia, what do you have to say now. This guy was posting stuff on Facebook about Palin before the President even too office. Jerks, all of them.

    Hey, it's a man thing. Checking out women. Posting it on Facebook is in extremely bad taste. That's behavior that one would expect of a middle schooler just discovering that hair grows on his head. I would use an expression for more colorful than "creepy." So, I hope you undertand when I express disagreement with your opinion.

    Ok, I'm not a fan of Obama, but he is the president. The fact that we have this caliber of individuals guarding him concerns me greatly.

    I'd like to know why we are spending public money protecting this stupid nobody. She has extorted lost of money for us all so far ... why can't she jolly well pay for her own damn protection?

    I believe she has a son in the armed forces. The buttons look to be pictures of him (?), I think.

    "Who are those people she is wearing on those badges??"
    Her son – you know, the one who serves in the military.

    That should have been a sign right then and there that the guy was mentally incompetent.
