An undercover FBI agent on a case of weapons smuggling from the Philippines to the United States denied a defense attorney's allegation that he paid for sex for himself and the suspects using taxpayer dollars.
The agent, a 16-year veteran who was not identified by name in court documents because he is working undercover in a separate investigation, in a sworn declaration strongly denied allegations of what a public defender contended was "outrageous government misconduct" and should be grounds for the case to be thrown out. Federal prosecutors have acknowledged that the government paid for $14,500 in expenses incurred by the agent for entertainment, cocktails and tips over the course of the investigation. Deputy federal public defender John Littrell said in court filings that one of the clubs the agent visited was later raided by local authorities for employing underage prostitutes, alleging that "some of the girls solicited by the undercover agent on behalf of himself and others were likely minors."

Federal prosecutors acknowledged in court filings that the government reimbursed the agent for $14,500 for entertainment, cocktails and tips over a period of less than a year in 2010 and 2011 in connection with the case. The expenses included $1,600 on a night out in September 2011 at a club known as Area 51 in Manila.
Did they expect them to tell the truth? Really?

I’ve lived in Manila. My husband and I would routinely play the unnamed game “first to spot the prostitute.” It was such a target rich environment. I live in Las Vegas and it’s exponentially more difficult to play now. Manila was where I learned, at the age of 38, the sex term , “happy ending.” Yeah, I’m thinking he’s a liar.
