Report: DEA agent made prostitute arrangement for Secret Service agent

Washington (CNN) - A Drug Enforcement Administration agent stationed in Cartagena, Colombia, arranged for a prostitute to have an encounter with a U.S. Secret Service Agent only days before a visit there by President Barack Obama, the Justice Department's inspector general has found.

In a December 20 letter to the top Democrat and Republican on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, the inspector general said the agent admitted his role in hiring the woman, while a second DEA agent said he was intoxicated that night and was unable to "recall specifically his involvement."

    Booze and bump on your own damn time NOT when you're supposed to be ensuring the safety of my President.
    They, DEA and Secret Service, exhibited an extreme lack of judgment and just basic common sense when this incident occurred (what, two months ago?) and that still hasn't changed.
    Other than that I'm not sure why this story has been resuscitated.

    The taxpayer is paying for far too many perks, for government employees.

    And our money is paying for this. How immoral. I realize it has happened before in previous administrations, but to flaunt it is sad whether you are a Christian or atheist. And they are supposed to represent this Nation.

    So this is a recent thing??

    Either recent or old, the Secret Service is supposed to be protecting the POTUS, not getting their groove on. And that goes for whomever is in the White House.

    I'll say the same thing that I said when this story came up the first time – if someone wants to do the mattress mambo with a prostitute, it's their own business... BUT when you're in a position where such actions can make you vulnerable to blackmail, resulting in the compromise of your ability to protect the POTUS (or whomever you're assigned to protect), it NO LONGER IS YOUR OWN BUSINESS, as by default you have failed the entire nation. Completely unacceptable behavior on BOTH the Secret Service agent and the DEA agent.
