Hotel dispute started confrontation that sent home Secret Service agents for misconduct involving prostitution full title

An employee approached at least one Secret Service agent and demanding that he pay extra money for having an additional overnight guest in his room.

The agent balked, which eventually resulted in a confrontation and forced diplomatic intervention.

The official said the guest involved apparently was a prostitute. It remains unclear whether more agents and more prostitutes were involved.

A hotel employee told the Associated Press the agents were drinking heavily during their stay.

Sounds like the whole scandal initiated from a hotel employee who probably didn't get his cut for providing the hookers.

Since when does the private security detail for the Pres party hardy before he visits anywhere?

Obama may be as paranoid as he is narcissistic. It could be that the SS detail over the last three years has been purged of anybody he or Michelle don't feel comfortable around, and replaced by people he does feel comfortable around.

Such people may be less than "professional".

Consider what Holder may have been doing in the Justice Dept and FBI over the last three years as well. The people they've installed will cause trouble for any future Republican, and may be very difficult to remove.

Don’t worry. This is part of O’Bummers War-on-Women! Operation WOW, which is part of his election strategy.

He’s probably thinking- “how the heck am I gonna explain that charge on the bill to the boss?”

I don't think that would be it. Unless the SS guy was an utter moron, he would pay "non-duty-related" charges personally.

Can’t wait until we hear:

——The administration pointed out that the agents were hired, trained under previous administrations and learned to drink from Bush....and screw from Clinton

“Good morning hotel reception clerk...there seems to be an error on my bill. This this $140 extra-guest item must be an error. Here’s $600 cash to help you recheck your comuter...”

Actually the cash should have been spread around the night before to hotel staff to keep things off of paperwork.

Failing all that he could then have tried this with the DC HQ travel voucher clerk...”That RON was really crowded, short rooms, double bookings, all mixed up. Anyhow one of the military commo guys had to stay in my room, never met him before...forget his name...don’t know if he was advance team or embassy or what...didn’t talk to him cause I fell asleep so soon.. guess the hotel charged us for it. “

The embarrassing incident has quickly eclipsed issues addressed at the summit such as foreign trade, the economy; drug trafficking, immigration and collaboration among the 33 Western Hemisphere countries[; the procedures for the immigrants to vote in Election 2012 and the compensation paid to their home governments for the proper votes.]

"Something doesn't quite pass the smell test, does it?"

A Secret Service detail assigned for protection in a foreign country, a country with very dangerous and murderous elements I might add, is partying hardy? Sorry, don't buy it.

The leftists favorite method for taking someone down is sex. We should all be very skeptical of anything coming out of this administration. My tin foil hat tells me someone saw something they shouldn't have.

No, itdoesn’t. What happened and why is this an important story now? What else is going on, maybe in Korea? IOW, I think our attention is being diverted from ... Something.

Bill Clinton's perjury and obstruction of justice? Well ... that was "just about sex".

This Obama Administration sexual scandal? Well ... that's "just a hotel dispute".

"No problem BO travels with his own..."

Is that speculation? Or is Obama known to have his own Huma?

This is another example of the deterioration of government as we have known it. Were the whores on taxpayer money like the GSA scandal in Las Vegas? It makes it so sad that we have a sorry rino for a candidate who will lose to obama and then we will further deteriorate into oblivion.

LOL!!! What a riot!!!

The Kenyan bastard goes to Colombia for headlines, but instead his secret service male whores upstage him and become the front page news.

Good.

I saw the Drudge Headline “Tremendous Embarrassment to USA” and I immediately thought he was referring to Hussein 0bama.
