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.”

What a bunch of pikers. The GSA would’ve tipped her a million bucks.

The the Secret Service advanced team are getting drunk and partying with skanky foreign prostitutes and the prostitutes were planting bugs and electronic surveillance devices all over Obama's hotel rooms.

Ya got to love it.

Wait till this blows up. Coke is at issue. Hookers are a sideshow.

The guys are gone and out of 12, you will find a few seekers.

Yeah, government conspiracies, what a hoot huh?

Where's that tin foil?

For instance, the government and CIA would never drug hundreds of unknowing, totally innocent unsuspecting Americans with LSD of all things, just to see what they'd do, while gawking at them through two way mirrors in hotel rooms.

Your government would never do anything that evil...Never.

One thing after another with this bunch..Ever time they go some place either they or the people working for them embarrass this country..Will we ever get back to a great nation again

Probably never. Never close to what it once was. It's just too corrupt from Prez to janitor & all in between & for most this is acceptable as long as I get my piece of the pie.

“..a black eye for the United States’ reputation abroad ..”

1. the WH is a “black eye” on our national prestige.

2. In Latin America anything concerning prostitution, mistresses, etc. is (like France) not considered a “black eye.” That is only true in the Anglo-Saxon culture.

don't try to equate the Central and South American culture with ours - it is not even close.

I’ll bet this is about coke. Hookers are a diversion. They say these guys are gone. Out of 12, you can expect a few to squeek. And wonder who back at the funny farm in dc was expecting some stuff. This is Columbia not Barrington Hills.

Agreed. These S.S. agents saw something or became awhere of something that the Obamanites don’t want the public to know.
With obama the best defense is to be offense. Dirty the men so their claims mean nothing.

Cultural cleansing of a native population by the elitists has always been deliberate. It is the way they break down and control the majority of a territory they are trying to enslave to their will.

I don’t know about the Austin talk show host’s idea of why it is happening. It is just where elitists with no ethical boundries naturally travel. They view themselves as superior to the natives and they want to rule over the labor and resources without uppity disagreement and rebellion. Read history.

Thanks for the follow-on post.

I requested the Mods to pull my post. I wrote it, picking what I thought were the most descriptive words, but in retrospect decided I probably might have selected the adjective I used to describe the host more carefully in this day and age.

So yeah though, anyway. :D

More likely it is all a lie. As soon as the situation began to get out of control a SS agent would have acted by pulling out uncle sams checkbook and making everything go away.

Something else happened but the feds and the media like filling us with bs 24/7.

No one would ever have heard a word about this had at least one of the agents not paid for services rendered. His failure to pay is what made the hooker go to the press.

Total jerks. Now most if not all will lose their jobs because of this, the federal employee benes, and the high security clearance that goes with the job. Gonna be very difficult to find employment, except maybe as security for some Hollywood or sports celebrity

According to FoxNews, the reason they got busted was that the hooker stayed the night, and the desk attendant at the hotel demanded that he pay for an extra person, which he refused to do.

I guess that proves he’s a Democrat.

I just don't believe that line of thinking. Something is wrong with that scenario and I have no clue what.
I could see 2, maybe 3-4, but not 12 all agreeing to something they knew was wrong.

It might have been a language problem because the Secret Service agent didn’t understand when the hooker said: “Debe pagar cientos dolares por la shtoop.”

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.

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.

LOL! Knowing they're gringos, I promise you they aren't getting the discounted rate.

It’s probably either loyalty or cowardice. Like the “thin blue line,” where cops stick together no matter what? Or it could be that 3-4 were actually involved, but the entire team got sent back for details to be sorted out. The US just wanted them out of there, period. What follows is internal. At a minimum, I’d expect hose involved, any others who knew what was going on, and the top guy to suffer the consequences.
