CBS News: DEA Head Expected To Resign Following Prostitution Scandal

The head of the Drug Enforcement Agency is expected to resign, CBS News reports.

A senior administration official tells CBS News Senior White House Correspondent Bill Plante that DEA administrator Michele Leonhart is expected to step down soon.

Leonhart came under fire after an internal report said government money was used to pay prostitutes at a farewell party for a high-ranking DEA official in Colombia.

DEA agents also rented undercover apartments in Colombia and used them for parties with prostitutes, the DEA said in an internal report.

Excerpts of the report were released last week by the oversight panel, which is investigating questionable behavior highlighted in a March report by the Justice Department’s inspector general that examined sexual harassment and misconduct allegations from 2009 to 2012.

After all the facts are dug up on this one it is going to leave a very deep hole.

I watched her during her congressional testimony, she was embarrassing. You could tell that she was not vetted well before promotion. I would guess she was picked as a affirmative action choice since she was terrible as a spokes person/head of DEA She was very obviously way above her ability to perform.

Good bye, hope the next pick is far better. I pray that the new president in 2016 (hope GOP) will rid ALL federal agencies of their top leaders since in the past 8 years it appears NONE (other then perhaps FBI) including the Military are anything but politicians who cover for the administration and do not work for the people.
