    What do guys think about the Secret Service prostitute scandal while the POTUS was in Cartegena, Colombia? I think it is a matter of security and law enforcement, not politics, if the mods don't think this appropriate, please shut this down.

    I guess they forgot who was supposed to run beside the car.

    I would bet my bottom dollar that this is nothing unusual at all. Only thing out of the ordinary is that they got caught.
    Apparently the prostitutes spent the night but the rules are that they have to be gone by 7 am otherwise another day is charged. Since they went past 7, the hotel demanded that they pay, the prostitutes (or prostitute, I think it was just one at this point), then demanded that the agents pay for that extra day. They refused and hilarity ensued.
    had they not refused...? We'd never know. Bet it goes on all the time.

    Yep. Isn't that the primary reason for becoming a politician in the first place? :smug:

    Essentially. First you get the money, then you get the power, and then you get the pros.
  7. Why does this alway's turn into news? ... because people are entertained from it

    "Dude gets caught paying for nookie!"

    personally I don't care to hear about it... live and let live...

    The hotel did its job. Prostitution is legal in Cartegena.

    This was a pretty bad breech of security. Prostitutes were in the president's security zone before he got there and it could have been compromised.

    The media makes it's own stories. Even after the public has had their "fill", the media will continue to drum it.

    My only concern is did they pay for the woman with their own money or did the use tax payer money?

    If it was like the GSA and they used tax dollars I'm mad. If anyone is going to spend my money on hookers it is going to be me!

    Except when an agent allows a non-authorized person in a clean area. Then it puts American lives at risk, and that is not acceptable.

    Yes, I know. This is why the agents were caught basically.

    Pretty scary to think that a local hotel inadvertently caught a potential security breech.
  14. I saw this on the nightly news, and I was amazed at how the reporter was going psycho about how the SS has sensitive information that terrorists could have gotten a hold of. First of all, these prostitutes are most likely unilingual Spanish speakers with a very low level of education, so it's not like they would have understood any of it. Secondly, these girls probably only care about two things, money being one of them. So I'm not losing any sleep over this.

    The issue is that Human Trafficking is a concern for the US Gov, and hiring a prostitute violates not only the SS Code of Conduct, but the UCMJ for the "unnamed unit" members with "special skills" who were there in support of the operation. (I guess the SS is running thin on snipers?)

    Is there any way I can choose how I want my tax refund?
