By now you may have heard that eleven agents from the Secret Service — many of them high ranking — were sent home from their job to protect President Barack Obama during his visit to Colombia for purchasing the services of prostitutes. The sexual element alone makes the story a scandal, but the thought that the men charged with making sure the President doesn’t get assassinated were busy having fun instead of doing their jobs is kind of scary and very insulting.

But there’s more: the only reason the agents were caught at all is that two of them tried to stiff a prostitute that they picked up at a strip club for “between $40 and $60” worth of services. NBC News reports:

The controversy arose after one of the women went back to a hotel room with two agents. The woman wanted to be paid for serving both agents, the source who has been briefed on the probe told NBC News. Instead, the agents would only agree to split her price, prompting the woman to complain to local police who were stationed in the lobby of the Hotel Caribe, the source said.

The police then went up to the agents’ room and began banging on the door, which the agents at first refused to open, the source said. There are conflicting reports over how the payment dispute was resolved. But two government sources told NBC News the police contacted the U.S. Embassy over the dispute and Embassy officials then arrived at the scene.

So this is what goes on, hunh?

It’s sickening enough that eleven Secret Service agents, the guys who secure rooftops and wear headsets to pick potential¬†gunmen out of crowds and all of that stuff that seems to only happen in the movies, would go to a local strip club and bring home a bunch of working women when they should be busy…I don’t know, making sure the notoriously unsafe Colombia is safe enough for the leader of the free world to visit. But it’s disturbing on a whole other level that these men are so deep into sexual tourism — and entitled to boot — that they haggled over getting a two-for-one and in the process ruined their careers. We can debate the morality of prostitution all we want, but anyone who goes to a third world country and treats any worker this way should be ashamed.

  • So for 50 bucks they’ve lost their jobs. What idiots they are and at least thier wives know what type of men they married.

    These dummies lost their pensions over $800 dollars. I don’t know if that’s in Colombian currency but regardless. Pay the PumPum tax!! Now you’ve lost credibility & your pensions. Your whole career is marked w/shame. Of course this story would have to break during Obama’s term. I’m sure S.S. has done this in the past, but knew how to cover it up. *Sigh*

    “Dead, climbs in coffin” was the funniest comment of all! I was really wondering if someone/anyone else had caught that (I charge my boyfriend…). Who is that model in your pic?

  • It is a shame that even the presidents men have turned to prostitution. They are suppose to have some of the best jobs in the country. How are children suppose to be inspired to become someone like them when they are doing stuff like this. We can thank German influence for this too. Prostitution is legal in Germany and they say it stimulates their economy. They even tax it. Is this event of our Secret Service men a hint of what Obama wants to do?
