Senator Joseph Lieberman, one of the top US senators leading the on-going inquiry into the infamous American Secret Service Sex Scandal reveals more shocking facts. According to Senator Joseph, the agency has been involved in some 64 counts of sexual misconduct; over the past five years.
During the Colombia prostitution scandal’s first congressional probe on Wednesday, the Senator revealed that the accused US Secret Service employees were found involved in countless shameful and troubling events. Mr Joseph further conveyed that numbers of the total 64 complaints unveiled the fact that involved employees used to send emails, sexually suggestive in nature.
However, among the above mentioned emails, one was found ‘non-consensual intercourse,’ said Joseph Lieberman. As result of shocking revelations, Mark Sullivan, the Director Secret Service was required with no choice but to apologize for the false and embarrassing behaviour of the Colombia-based agency’s employees.
Ever since the word got out, at least eight agents ended up losing their respective jobs, including two supervisors. There were more than ten military personnel alongside four other employees, found to have links to the scandal also. Reports suggested that respectively on April 11 and 12, the accused US Secret Service and the said military personnel ‘had fun’ with as many as 21 women whom they took back to their respective hotel rooms in Cartagena (Colombia).
These ‘activities’ were carried out hours before President Barack Obama’s scheduled visit there to attend Organization of American States (OAS) Summit. Had police not intervened in a dispute between one of the accused agents and a female escort over payment; neither the scandal would erupt nor would the matter go public. However, it did.
Senator Lieberman, who is also the Homeland Security committee Chairman, along with(the Republican Senator), stressed that the scandal in question; was far from a one-off. Lieberman also added that thanks to the argument the prostitute had with one agent; the entire world came to know about the sordid story.
Involvement of hardest working, most dedicated agents among the federal government employees certainly caused a stir and sheer embarrassment for both; the agency and the US government; though ‘efforts’ were made to cover up the scandals.
