Secret Service Agents Sent Home From Presidential Trip For Alleged Misconduct

U.S. Secret Service agents were sent home from President Obama’s trip to Colombia because of allegations of misconduct, apparently involving prostitution.

While the Secret Service would not confirm the number of agents involved, the allegations make this an acutely embarrassing incident for the elite security around a president.

“There have been allegations of misconduct made against Secret Service personnel in Cartagena, Colombia, prior to the president’s trip,” spokesman Ed Donovan, a special agent, told ABC News this evening. “Because of this, those personnel are being relieved of their assignments, returned to their place of duty, and are being replaced by other Secret Service personnel.

“The Secret Service takes all allegations of misconduct seriously. This entire matter has been turned over to our Office of Professional Responsibility, which serves as the agency’s internal affairs component. These personnel changes will not affect the comprehensive security plan that has been prepared in advance of the President’s trip,” added Donovan.

The misconduct was first reported by the Associated Press, which said it received an anonymous tip that the alleged misconduct of a dozen Secret Service agents involved prostitutes in Cartagena. The beach-resort city is hosting the Summit of the Americas. President Obama left Washington Friday to attend the series of meetings, which start Saturday.

He is scheduled to return home Sunday.
