More on Those Secret Service Agents and their Colombian Prostitutes
Via the NY Daily News: Secret Service agents busted because they refused to pay hooker: source
Most of the Secret Service agents embroiled in a prostitution scandal brought women back to their Colombia hotel rooms before President Obama arrived in town for an international summit, Rep. Pete King said Saturday.
King said the raunchy rendezvous involved 11 agents and went sour when an agent refused to pay one of the women, who were presumed to be hookers.
“The agent said, ‘I don’t owe you anything,’ but gave the woman some money,” said King (R-L.I.),the head of the House Homeland Security Committee, who was briefed on the matter. “I don’t know how much, and it was settled right there.”
As it turned out, the agents’ troubles were just beginning. Local cops were called to the hotel in Cartagena and, because the matter involved foreigners, a report was written up and sent to the U.S. Embassy, King said.
Embassy officials in turn notified the Secret Service, which immediately launched an investigation.
Ok, so partaking of prostitutes whilst you are supposed to be preparing for a presidential visit to a foreign country: muy estúpido.
Doing so and then refusing to pay, thus almost guaranteeing attention to yourself: mucho más estúpido. Mucho, mucho más.
These are people entrusted with security?
On the personal trivia level, I am pretty sure I stayed at the hotel in question (the Hotel Caribe) back 1995.
