Secret Service Director Survives Scandal

April 23, 2012  | 

Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan has yet to fall prey to the widening sex scandal involving 12 agents who solicited sex from Columbian prostitutes while President Obama visited the country earlier this month.

So far, six agents have been forced out, including two supervisors, and a 12th agent who declined to participate has been cleared. Director Sullivan has kept his job.

Federal lawmakers praised Sullivan's handling of the scandal while speaking on the Sunday civic affairs talk shows, reports CNN.

"From every indication I've seen, from the moment this scandal broke until now, there's no attempt to cover anything over," U.S. Rep. Peter King, R-New York, said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Make the 12th agent who declined to participate and was cleared the new supervisor.

As a retired fed from another agency, I have to wonder what's happened to the USSS. The Secret Service agents I knew and worked with had the highest moral and professional standards of any other federal agency. Those standards were ingrained in agents from the first day of training, and were considered as sacred a trust as protecting the president. Truly a sad commentary on how our society has devolved into its lowest common denominator.

Those standards are just another victim of the decaying moral standards of society as a whole.

Lets make another fricken reality show out of this!! Better still, retire, fire, suspend and move on. Lets not waste anymore taxpayers money on a dam witch hunt which one politician suggested we should do. How about another stupid statement if their were more women! Huh?? Spend money on a LEO that was KIA like the Border Patrol Agent Terry or lets get to the bottom of Maj, Muslim who killed innocent soldiers at a Texas Army Base. The news media and the Administration buried both of those incidents.
