Something does not add up here, quoting from the article:
Edwin M. Donovan, special agent in charge at the Secret Service's Office of Government and Public Affairs in Washington, said the agency pays $2,200 in rent per-month, the same amount a previous tenant had paid before moving out.
April to August is five months (and I am being generous by counting Aug.), which is $11,000. Did he also charge them a first and last, or a security deposit?
Probably a smart move as he knows he and The Zero are tanking the economy.

(When you hear hooves, think horses, not zebras.)
The Delaware Residential Landlord Tenant Code (see 25 Del. C. §5118) is very landlord-friendly. Combine that with federal procurement rules and it looks like a recipe for some nice charges.
Note, though, IANAL.
