Three Secret Service Agents Resign

The fallout from the Colombian prostitution sex scandal takes a turn for the interesting as three Secret Service employees will leave the agency. They are among the 11 members of the elite agency — and at least five military personnel — involved in the incident that occurred ahead of President Barack Obama's trip to South America for the Summit of the Americas. Although the Secret Service's investigation "is in its early stages and is still ongoing," according to assistant director Paul Morrissey, those three agents are already on their way out.

One supervisory employee was allowed to retire, a second supervisor has been proposed for removal for cause — which requires 30-day notice and the right to be represented by private legal counsel. A third non-supervisory employee also stepped down. Meanwhile, the other eight Secret Service employees remain on administrative leave and have had their security clearances suspended. "We demand that all of our employees adhere to the highest professional and ethical standards and are committed to a full review of this matter," Morrissey said.

At the root of it all, the prostitute who has claimed she is still owed restitution by members of the Secret Service has given her testimony, but the agency plans to utilize its own investigative techniques including polygraph exams and interviews to get to the bottom of this international travesty.
