Something Rotten In The State

With the number of Secret Service members and agents caught up in the partying-with-prostitutes scandal in Cartagena now at a dozen, and six already gone, how much wider and deeper does this go?

No one can take pleasure in seeing Secret Service agents – whose deserved reputation is that they will "take a bullet" for the president, his family and all whom they protect – shamed and disgraced.

Yet one would have to be naive to believe this was some isolated incident. No sooner was the first day's work done in Cartagena than 20 hookers were trooping into the hotel rooms of SS agents, supervisors and members of the military advance team.

And Sen. Charles Grassley asks a relevant question.

As the Secret Service travel and work in close contact with the White House Advance Office and White House Communications Agency, was the Obama staff oblivious to this misconduct? If they were aware of it, did no one report it to the White House chief of staff?

If that one SS agent hadn't tried to cheat the hooker we still wouldn't know about it!

The hooker was the one that called the police, it's legal there and she was robbed. I don't blame her for calling the police.

This is just one layer of that stinkin' onion. We all know this was not an isolated incident.

Good thing they got that hooker out of Obama's room before all hell broke loose.

1:12-I agree.This being said,would'nt it be likely that the SS was also making arrangements for a "superior" who would be along shortly.Since this has always been the plan,why should it not be now?
