Secret Service agents busted because they refused to pay hooker: source
NYDaily News ^ | April 14, 2012 | Alison Gendar AND Jonathan Lemire

Posted on 04/14/2012 11:27:09 AM PDT by yoe

The dozen Secret Service agents sent home after a prostitution scandal in Colombia were busted after at least one of them refused to pay a hooker, sources said.

The scandal — a black eye for the United States’ reputation abroad — was revealed Friday before President Obama arrived in Cartagena for the Summit of the Americas.

The 12 agents were part of an advance team meant to secure a local hotel before the summit began — yet their attention apparently turned to taking advantage of Colombia’s policy of legal prostitution.

“They had arranged to have a bunch of prostitutes come by and one of the agents refused to pay a prostitute,” said author Ronald Kessler, one of the leading experts on the Secret Service. “Yes, doubly good judgement there.”

[snip] Prostitution is legal in Colombia, as long as it is conducted in so-called “tolerance zones.”

They didn’t pay because they thought it was covered under ObamaCare.

The only possible explanation is that they were directed to procure a few hookers for Obama and Obama was not willing or able to pay.

oh. so it’s not that they were in contact with hookers, it’s that they didn’t pay them?

What rot

But, that’s the hallmark of the Obama crew. Their motto: “Screw You”.

If this is true (really wondering about that) this almost leads to the question whether those guys are perhaps accustomed to impressing ladies with their job and status, and since prostitution is illegal in most of the USA - may not even have considered the young lady really wasn’t there as a starstruck ‘important guys in uniform’ groupie?

One would certainly hope it was an honest mistake, if it really happened.

Why is the Obama Admin making a media circus of this. They should be discreet. It is foolish for them to make enemies of the SS.

And they mistakenly procured females.

It seems the first reports were they were fired because of hookers.

Now, it seems hookers are legal so they are being recalled because someone didn’t pay.

Next up...is someone going to claim rape?

This whole thing seems so contrived.

I hope one of them starts talking...

Since they didn’t pay the hooker would this be the “war on women?”

Is it possible that instead of refusing to pay, they may have KILLED a prostitute? What else would require diplomatic intervention?

How about the Secret Service team had been compromised so they had to pull them all out and used a BS excuse about a hooker.

Maybe they didn’t want to pay because they didn’t think they were prostitutes? That the babes just wanted to be with the cool Secret Service dudes?

Unlikely, I know.

It is hard to believe 12 adult men would all agree at the same time to order hookers? Not believable.

Could it be the one(s) who refused to pay did not want any part of this to begin with? So some jerkhead orders 12 hookers thinking all would partake. And then when 12 ladies of the night later showed up, and demand payment, well, no way I would pay for something I would never agree to nor partake of. Let the rest of the group be damned by my refusal.

Since nobody, not even the hotel, had the presence of mind to pay the hooker and make this all go away, I think we can infer a setup of some sort.

Maybe there are Breitbarts in Colombia, too.

As I said earlier. One didn't pay, but all their names are connected to hookers, via the hotel. Best and brightest.

What an embarrassment for the Secret Service and the United States. This is cr@p we read about from another country and chuckle. This sounds like an agency that needs wholesale butt kicking and a complete turnover in it's hierarchy.

What a disgrace.

I don’t think that’s at all unlikely.

We are a nation founded by Puritans, and our contempt for prostitution drives women it that business into furtive behavior and shame. Yet “loose” behavior which is engaged in voluntarily, is defiantly welcomed here.

Elsewhere, where societal pressures and prohibitions are not what they are here, hookers some places behave very much like temporary girlfriends.

I wouldn’t be surprized if that’s exactly what happened.

(If it happened at all, and isn’t just a deliberate distraction to get the DNC “War on Wives” out of the news)

The ethics for employees in the Federal government, especially the moral rules limiting sex, have been ditched as being judgemental, intolerant and hate. Self discipline breaks down and this is what happens. Corruption enters the door. Sex does have an expression of power and abuse if not governed by respect and love.

It’s coming to the military, worse than it is now, too. It’s in the public schools among teachers as they are ordered by activists to interact sexually with the children to erase sexual rules and “judgement” or discernment.

It has been imposed as a cultural cleansing program of erasing sexual norms and taboos as demanded by the gay elitists and their supporters (used to be known as feminists). Christianity or not, psychologically and socially, a program of moral corruption of the government and children is not harmless.

I think this is why they are systematically sexually molesting passengers at the airports. Some leaders in the Obama admin. and TSA are getting a thrill of imposing themselves sexually on the sheep. When the people complain about being fondled and photographed and viewed naked, they are protrayed as the ones who are crazy. The perverts are the sane ones. They can do what they want to anyone they want.

what frequently happens in Vegas and many foreign cities is hookers will come on to men that look like they can pay alot in a typical place to meet women, spend the night and then give the bill in the morning. The hookers will say the men were too drunk to recall the price or dont understand the local language and threaten to have a pimp convince them.

These guys would probably not give in and get told on. It could easily be a political sting or a set-up to get US drug forces out of Colombia. Female spies have always been important assets...

The issue is not whether the hookers were legal or not; the issue is not whether the agent or agents refused to pay nor not.

The issue is, if yu are Secret Service YOU DON’T DO ANYTHING to compromise the secuirty of the POTUS.

To become a SS if the pinnacle of a law enforcement career.

Why risk that for some tail you can get when you are off assignment?

That is why this is not passing the smell test.

This is “risky business” and could wind up making you or your partners dead by breaching security, so why would you do that?

Given the poor state of the American media these days, I’ll wait for the real story to emerge.

It is entirely conceivable that the hookers work for one cartel or another.
Maybe the SS was simply using them to score coke.

The only possible story I can think of that would be any explanation at all, would be that it was some kind of a pre-wedding bachelor party thing for one of them.
Not that even that story would excuse this behavior - What a black eye on the agency.

The U.S. Government is being run by Communist and 3 rate clowns.

Where's the blackmail video tape of the Secret Service agents talking sh*t about Obama, while getting drunk with prostitutes in these foreign countries?

How stupid can these people possibly be?

This reminds of of Bush's Homeland Security boss Chertoff, when it was discovered people who entered the country illegally were running around the inside of his private residence.

Ya can't make this cheet up.

Doubtful.

The prostitutes in Colombia are so inexpensive, if 12 were ordered and only 11 SS wanted to partake then one of the 11 would have stepped up to the plate and purchased two. I believe they call that a 3some.
