Obama Staffers May Be Linked to Columbia Prostitution Scandal
When news of a prostitution scandal broke ahead of President Barack Obama’s visit to Columbia in April, the administration let the Secret Service–and especially the military–take the fall. Now, however, Fox News reports that an investigation may reveal the involvement of two members of President Obama’s advance team.
According to Fox:
…[M]ultiple law enforcement and congressional sources tell FoxNews.com that investigators also discovered two White House advance team members checked in prostitutes as overnight guests at a Cartagena hotel in the days before President Obama’s April 13 visit.
“Three U.S. delegation members that stayed at the Hilton brought prostitutes back as overnight guests. One of them was ours (Secret Service) and the other two were White House staffers,” a high-ranking Secret Service official told FoxNews.com. “We knew very early that White House staffers were involved.”
The initial report is more than two months overdue, fueling speculation that it is being withheld–or possibly altered–to protect Obama administration staff.
