Secret Service hooker flap over $47
NY Post ^ | 4/15/12 | GEOFF EARLE in DC and DON KAPLAN

Posted on 04/15/2012 5:56:05 AM PDT by jimbo123

A Secret Service agent shamed the United States after a wild night of babes and booze that ended in an argument with a Colombian hooker over as little as $47.

One of 11 elite agents assigned to ensure President Obama’s protection at a summit meeting in Cartagena, Colombia, was busted after his lady of the evening refused to leave his hotel room in the morning without her fee.

That woman was one of 11 hookers hired by the agents — and the only one who hadn’t left Cartagena’s swank Hotel Caribe, where White House staffers, members of the press and dignitaries are staying during the Summit of the Americas meeting, sources said.

Just as I thought. He believed that the gorgeous “supermodel” type gal hanging around the hotel bar and pool just fell in love with him.

And he was shocked to discover she wanted money!

Careers lost, over $47.

He should’a asked Zer0 for a bailout from Zer0’s stash.

Could these guys be too young to have watched "Miami Vice" in their formative years? They shoulda known!

But the scandal has made the United States the laughingstock of the important summit, as diplomats have been gossiping about hooker high jinx rather than focusing on Obama’s goals in the region.

Good. Whatever "Obama's goals in the region" are, we can be pretty certain they're not for the benefit of the United States. Rock on, SS agents!

I assume that Zer0's goal is to make the US a tin-horned despot's lair, just like rest.

Yeah they are finito obviously, which is why at first I didn’t believe this. A friend of mine is in the SS and never in a million years could I picture him doing something like this considering what he went through to get the job. Marine corp, then a NYC cop, then the SS. But on the other hand ye olde booze can make anyone crazy. I remember 20 years ago I was at a conference for my job and some higher ups got drunk and set off fire alarms and fire extinguishers in the hotel. Just a huge WTF?? Not only were they fired but also arrested.

Ummm...I think the shame began when they hired hookers and boozed it up.

So they wouldn’t pay $47 for “services rendered”, huh? I guess it’s safe to say that these SS “men” were liberals because, 1) they solicited prostitutes, and 2) they are never willing to pay for things with their own money.

...Obama’s goals in the region...

What goals in the region would this imbecilic marxist have?

The secret service agents are reflecting what has happened to America in the past 40 months: we got a better screwing than they did. The difference is that we had to pay and will keep on paying for the rest of our lives as well as the lives of our decendants.

Now I ask you: was it worth it to elect an unknown, pathetic excuse for an American as president?

I don’t believe this story for a minute - it smells to high heaven. It’s far more likely that these men were set up for demonization because they saw something potentially damaging to Obama or some of his staff, and they have to be discredited and silenced or their reputations ruined to protect someone.

I remember once I was outside a hotel when I saw a white guy wearing a business suit walking away quickly. A black woman with an open shirt and no bra, breasts totally exposed, was chasing after him screaming “give me my money you SOB!” the guy went into a car and quickly zipped away with the woman outside cursing, lol.

This isn’t the first time this crap has happened under the communist hussein and only luck that it was exposed. These clowns were drunk all week and it was one big party time. It is the commie lib anything goes mentality for the last 3 years. Big Sis is going to the bighouse for perjury, Dick Holder & furious, Salazar dissing a judge, hussein going around congress, Vilisack and the black farmers fraud, slimy visitors allowed in white house, hussein cant pass a background check, etc etc. Now, the USA is the laughingstock of the world.

You appear to know a lot more about these things than I ever will. However, for most guys, if the hooker in their hotel room rendered services without payment, they would be glad to leave her in the room, while they went about their business. The SS agents, of course, must receive extensive training on maintaining decorum and bringing disgrace on the themselves or the President. Either training failed, or they failed to train them.

Odd.

Let me make a big guess here. Agents like this were not part of the SS before Obama showed up.
Will we hear stories of lowered standards for the SS as Obama became President?

Still hard to believe that eleven of these guys went off the reservation like this all at once, given their background and training. That is, unless in the last three years Obama has gutted the Secret Service and filled it with people he could “trust” irrespective of training and background.

Would be interesting to know what he has done to the Secret Service, and what the full details of this incident are.

No! Careers lost were due to the agents lack of morals. The service members should loose their military careers due to adultery if married. The $47 is material.

How many lives are going to be hurt because these men used poor judgment? I don't want them serving MY country.

Maybe they can get together with Bobby Patrino and Bill Clinton.

Did the US press guys in the same hotel get the better hookers, or the cheaper hookers? I’m just curious why they didn’t get into trouble.

Back when I was a frogman, half of the guys would remove their wedding bands when traveling “ex-conus” or out of the continental 48 states.

Seriously, half of the guys would go for anything in a skirt, once they were out of the country.

A first-class beach resort hotel in Cartagena in advance of a major conference would look like the after-party for the Miss Colombia Pageant. It would just be swarming with “10s.”

That’s a lot of temptation.

The United States has PLENTY! to be embarrassed about but not this.

The only thing embarrassing about this "scandal" is that one of 'em was dumb enough to hold out on a lousy 47 bucks. I'd have given her more than that as a tip to keep her mouth shut.

I think the problem was that the agent in question thought the beautiful supermodel type hanging around the pool and hotel bar fell for him. They don’t walk around with signs saying “whore.” They look like college girl beauty pageant contestants. They don’t say, in the bar or at the pool, “I’m a whore, and I want $50 for an hour.” Not the high class ones. So my guess is that the agent actually took offense at being asked for money, and tried to throw her out. But it was her home court, not his. And I’ll be he had paid her a thousand dollars, and not stiffed her for $47.

The problem, to me at least, is that these guys are targets for foreign agents. To take a girl into your room after drinking all night while on a security detail is beyond stupid.

In this instance it was just a hooker, but who knows what would happen if a foreign agent posing as a hooker could find out while rummaging through his belongings while there?

That might be the case if it was just one guy. But it doesn’t sound like it was just one agent/one hooker.
Now, maybe his beef was actually with the hotel wanting the $47, not the hooker, and that’s what started the argument.

Either way, shouldn’t have been boozing, and shouldn’t have been womanizing. No excuses.

Oh, of course, it’s a huge security risk.

But when you see a dozen girls who look like the finalists of the Miss Colombia Pageant sashaying around the pool in bikinis, and meet them later at the hotel bar in slinky mini-dresses, rational thought goes out the window.

Especially if the girls are not advertised as putas at all, but seem just like really nice (and gorgeous) girls who just really, genuinely like you. So much, that they would like to visit your hotel room.

Ask any military vet who has spent a few days “awaiting transportation” (AT on the old travel claims) in some nice hotel in Europe, Asia or South America. The girls just seemed to “be around.”

And if you start with the half of the men who remove their wedding bands the minute they head overseas, it’s not hard to understand the rest.

I’ll bet the other ten (who did cause a scene) would like to choke the guy who refused to pay the “nice girl” her $50 after their “cosensual affair” (he thought).
