WASHINGTON – Three Secret Service agents, including two supervisors, who were implicated in the agency’s prostitution scandal are leaving the agency as investigators seek to determine whether the embarrassing episode led to a security breach.
Officials said none of the 11 Secret Service agents who allegedly brought prostitutes to their hotel rooms in Colombia before President Obama visited for a summit last weekend had weapons, radios, itineraries or other potentially sensitive documents in their rooms.
Paul Morrissey, assistant director of the Secret Service, said in a statement that one agency supervisor was allowed to retire, another was “proposed for removal for cause,” and a third nonsupervisory employee had resigned.
Morrissey said the supervisor being fired had 30 days to appeal and the right to private legal counsel. None of the three was identified.
