3 Secret Service Agents Lose Jobs, So Far

LA Times

I'm sure that everyone is aware of the Secret Service/Columbian Prostitution scandal by now. As of today, three agents have lost their jobs.

One supervisor is fired, another is allowed to retire, and a nonsupervisory worker has resigned over the investigation into the prostitution scandal at a summit in Columbia.

The number of agents, prostitutes and even military personnel involved varies from report to report, as details emerge.

Certainly, the moral and security failures of a long respected Federal agency and its national security implications are disturbing.

Your thoughts?

I know it's tough but they should respect the office and not the man. He'll be gone in January 2013.

This should be vigorously pursued, and every trace of this sort of behavior erased from the Secret Service. This is one place where zero tolerance should be the rule.

In a larger sense, I fear we are seeing the fruits of our societal decline, one that has been more and more accepting of bad behavior as the norm. It's time for us, and by us I mean the country as a whole, to stand up and say we've had quite enough, and that a return to valuing personal integrity is long overdue. It might very well be too late to stop the slide, but we can't give up without a fight.

One emailer to the O'Reilly Factor suggested, "you'e expect the Secret Service would know how to keep these services secret."

"Illinois city official accused of stealing $30M from taxpayers"

This, along with all the other things we've been made privy to in the news as of late, is what should make us all feel good about having more gov't and higher taxes, whether it be city, state or federal gov't. I mean, only a crazy rightwing nooshan would ever be disturbed by any of this. The rest of the country, probably 90 percent by windy's estimate loves this shit. Personally I'm ENRAGED!

Of course every time this shit happens we get the standard response of how things are going to get tightened up, protections put in place so's things like this don't happen anymore. And I've got some ocean front property in Arizona up for sale.

Wild partying at the GSA and Secret Service...sounds like Obama might need to appoint a Bacchanalia czar soon?
