Secret Service agent who hid affair kills himself (assigned to Ovama)

WASHINGTON (AP) — For nearly six years, a senior Secret Service agent kept his extramarital affair with a Mexican woman a secret from the agency responsible for protecting the president.

But in the wake of an embarrassing prostitution scandal involving 13 agents and officers, Rafael Prieto’s secret was revealed by a fellow employee amid concerns the Secret Service wasn’t enforcing its rules consistently. With an internal investigation ongoing, Prieto apparently committed suicide last week, people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

Prieto, a married father assigned to the security detail for President Barack Obama, admitted the years-long relationship with a woman from Mexico to U.S. investigators when confronted. Before his death, he was the subject of an investigation focused on whether he violated agency rules that require disclosing relationships with foreigners, those familiar with the matter said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss Prieto’s death or the investigation.

Somebody is bucking for the Order of the Blue Falcon here. The initial scandal was reported by an agent and then somebody that was targeted in that investigation dimed this guy out.

Being unfaithful to your spouse is a bad thing, and a guy having an affair with a foreigner is a bad thing in the Secret Service, since it implies the guy is lying on his 5 year background investigation. It is still an order of magnitude different than engaging prostitutes while on the lead team for the President's security detail.

His suicide will allow his wife to get the life insurance and probably a survivor benefit pension.

Ayup. Even though cheating on spouses is common today, there is still enough of jealousy left in the world that it could open a body up to blackmail. Now if the affair were copacetic with the spouse, the Secret Service would yawn.

It is a bad thing, and lying in your 5 year review is terminal to a career in the SS.

The suicide is certainly a bridge too far for remorse over an exposed affair. There were very likely other problems that may never be known, the least of which could be common alcoholism, but something drove him to despair.

I thought free sex with whores was the ultimate American freedom! Did lie-berals pull another pratfall on Americans? Maybe.

So the other agents knew about this years long affair and never did anything about it.

The SS is rotten to the core.

I don’t think the spouse is the only one that people often want to hide an affair from.

It is not possible that as the subject agent was on Obunga's personal detail - he saw or heard the Kenyan nancy boy in flagrante with Reggie Love or whomever. And was offed as a result. The suicide story won't hunt.

Why do I hear the strains of ‘The Godfather Part’ and visualize Michael Corleone.

I wonder what his background was — Ex Military of some sort?

Guy sounds like a real genius.

I wonder how many other of these characters are mentally unstable

I heard they found one in Miami passed out drunk on the sidewalk last night, the guy punched the local cop in the face when he tried to cuff him.

It is a scorched earth mentality where one tries to mitigate their own transgressions by saying everybody does it. I saw a heinous case of this once in the military where a guy tried to take everybody with him over a flat hattting incident where damage was done to civilian property. This idiot claimed everybody in his unit did it. That argument didn’t hold up since he was the only guy that clipped a powerline that wasn’t very high off the ground.

There is no evidence that Prieto’s relationship posed any security threat.

If his secret was so deep and dark to him that it caused him to kill himself when it was revealed, then yes, it posed a HUGE security threat.

Then again, it might be a Kenyacide. And the threat to security was the threat to Obama’s personal secrets.

As I understand it, insurance does not cover suicide.

OMG your comment about how many of these agents were hired under Clinton reminded me of a local cop here! He left to join the secret service in the mid-90’s, was a real loser, I think his superiors recommended him just to get rid of him. None of the other officers liked him, he was a real d-bag. (I don't usually use that term!) The kids used to laugh when we'd drive by his house and he'd be mowing his lawn wearing tight, short 1970’s shorts, gun with holster, generic “Police” blue T-shirt, sun glasses— he looked liked that guy from Reno 911! Mowing his lawn off duty! A real piece of work!

There is usually a two year exclusionary period. It may be a bit shorter or longer, but it does pay off after the exclusionary period.

Evidence that may have come out in questioning but the witness is now dead. How convenient.

Those employees were in the Caribbean resort city in advance of Obama’s arrival for a South American summit. After a night of heavy partying in some of Cartagena’s bars and clubs, the employees brought women, including prostitutes, back to the where they were staying. The incident became public after one agent refused to pay a prostitute and argued with her in a hotel hallway. Prieto was never in Colombia during the scandal.

Eight of those Secret Service employees have been forced out of the agency, three were cleared of serious misconduct and at least two are fighting to get their jobs back.

The scandal prompted Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan to issue a new code of conduct that barred employees from drinking within 10 hours of the start of a shift or bringing foreigners to their hotel rooms.

But going to brothels will be okay, right, Mr Sullivan?

I remember when you were required to be morally straight because of the danger of being compromised by the enemy. Now...not so much. When our enemies work within the powers of our government, guess we lost that ideal.
