NBC: Prostitute's $50 fee for two agents triggered Secret Service scandal
msnbc ^ | 4/17/2012 | Michael Isikoff and Jim Miklaszewski

Posted on 04/17/2012 3:33:56 PM PDT by tobyhill

The Colombian prostitute who triggered the scandal that has rocked the Secret Service got angry with two agents who refused to pay her full price for servicing the two of them, leading to a financial dispute over between $40 and $60, according to a government source who has been briefed on the investigation.

Two agents from the service's elite Counter Assault Team, in Cartagena, Colombia, in advance of President Barack Obama's arrival for the Summit of the Americas over the weekend, had procured the women's services at a local strip club called the Pley Club on the evening of April 11. All the Secret Service agents and officers implicated in the scandal are believed to have gone to the club that evening and brought back women, a U.S. official told NBC News.

They were upset that they didn’t get the GSA discount for quantity 2 or more. I see.

I have a hard time believing this. That 11 individuals, two of them supervisors, in our most elite law enforcement organization, who are specificaly screened and picked to avoid these very inticements because pretty women getting information from men tasked with prpotecting countries and leaders is as old as mankind, would all go off the reservation at one time.

You may find one now and then that you missed...but eleven at once? And tow of the eleven the supervisors?

No, this is all wrong...and I mean very wrong.

either Obama and his policies have completely destroyed the Secret Service and replaced the older officers with new ones chosen under entirely different criteria...or there is something else going on here and these people are being purged for one reason or another.

Since I heard a secret service agent who is running for the US Senate speak last night, and who was on the Obama detail before he retired or quit to run for the Senat...and he said he personally knew some of these people and could not explain or comprehend it...I doubt Obama has had time to accomplish option one above.

Jeff, you nailed it. Some or all of these guys have witnessed or heard something that is damaging to Obama to such an extent that these guys were set up for a smear to take away or diminish any credibility if called to testify. My gut tells me Fast and Furious is in play here, but given it’s Obama, this could be about anything.

The Cartagena incident is the tip of the iceberg. Now the administration has to tread very lightly re. disciplinary action against these “rogues” as they probably have the 8x10’s on many of gov’t. figures including the ‘messiah’ and “mooch” Michelle.

All those with booked rooms at the hotel had to pay a fee of $25 for bringing any guests to their rooms — and the guests were required to leave some form of identification at the front desk.


The hotel is a pimp collecting a hooker tax
Seriously I wonder how many people have been blackmailed because of this

You have that 100% right. From my experience, I have seen people stray while TDY, but I've never seen anything like this.

Someone has been compromised. Was it the SS agents — or was it the administration? I doubt that 11 SS agents and 10 military men all decided to have a hooker party while on presidential detail. It's not believable.

They were already morons. Walked into bordello,, bragging about being Obamas bodyguards. To the working girls,, they heard,,”i run with powerful rich guys,,and need to keep this secret”.

And i still haven’t seen any photos of the agents. But there is an urban subculture well known for trash talk that would be proud to be associated with Obama, is known for abuse of women, and flashing cash but refusing to pay. Holder is especially fond of them. I’m kind of curious, because if this was nice boys from the heartland,, we would be knowing who they were by know. Maybe im wrong,,, we’ll see.

This is some seriously scary stuff.

Thing is that there are no real facts that have been reported, don't know how many "Agents" were actually hookering it up.

Might have been only one or two, and all of their associates are being cashiered for not keeping a couple of degenerate morons in line.

That would actually be the responsible thing for Command to do.

If the Supervisors weren't respected or feared enough, and fellow agents not vigilant enough that even one SS agent would even try pulling something like this, the whole squad needs to go.

Something else. The press is almost certainly well aware of who the agents are,, and probably have a ton of photos of them from other trips.

Someone won’t show us pix,, and i’m getting curious as to why. They are either Holders people,, or if not, they know things about Obama and the press does not want to focus the spotlight on them and ramp up the pressure. They might start to sing,,

Could there be a new Praetorian Guard in the making? Think SS, not the Secret Service kind, the REAL SS.

Cronyism of a security minded sort. He wanted people loyal to him and him alone. The sort that wouldn't blab about how many times Bill Ayres or Gorge Soros were at the White House. Professionals are loyal to the service and the office. They might drop a dime on someone who is systematically destroying the nation and disgracing the office they were sworn to protect. So he brought in guys who were politically reliable, even if they lacked the professional standards of the old service.

Remember in 2009 there were all those stories about how Michelle mistreated the secret service. Notice how we don't hear that kind of story any more. So do you think Michelle changed, or that the secret service has been changed to those who won't talk about the masters business.

It is after all the Chicago way. The bodyguard of the Chicago mayor was never to protect him. Its job was to clean up after him.

“Uh, maybe because they are the Secret Service”

Trite,,, but they will all lose their jobs. Their identity doesn’t need to be secret. Also, agents are routinely noted in press photos. The name is “secret service” but no, their names are not actually a “secret”. Also, the press undoubtedly knows who they are.
The press and Obama have a habit of relentlessly exposing anything secret when they think it benefits them. So when the press and Obama are keeping photos away,,, it benefits them somehow. Just watch.

You've all heard of the booklet called "Stamps and Stories" from when you were kids, or your kids were kids. USPS had a contract to publish that way back in the good old days ~ with the work done by a fellow who owned many of the copyrights on much of the art work ~ and he did a great job.

There was a large USPS meeting in NYC and a good dozen employees in the then Marketing Division ~ very involved in the sale downstream of Stamps and Stories to mostly children (through their parents) ended up spending the night at the contractor's Mid-Town Penthouse ~ which was, apparently, huge!

So, somewhere the story got out that a dozen Postal "Executives" partied it up at so - and - so's penthouse suite in an all-night party!

The scandal rolled on for months and dire threats of punishment were made by politicians everywhere ~ Jack Anderson raged!

In the end not much was done. There was no party.

Most of those "executives" were just lower level staff guys working in the same office I was. That's back in the days when postal clerks (several rungs below our level) were paying higher taxes than the Speaker of the House. A very primitive time.

We probably will never hear the details of what happened in Columbia, or what happened to these guys caught up in it, but Fur Shur it will be far less significant than imagined by anyone presently commenting on it.

Yours would be the most plausible explanation thus far, if the agents were the “body” team, but weren’t these guys from the advance team?

There is no “good” explanation for this story. It is either evidence of massive corruption in the SS ranks or a massive setup job to destroy these agents.

She serviced TWO of them?

11 guys and 21 hos, but one of the hos had to work a double shift?

Math ain’t my strong suite, but these numbers don’t make sense! Eleven into twenty-one.....each agent should have had the services of 1.9 hos!

There’s either a tinfoil hat explanation or more likely some sort of institutional breakdown leading to demoralization of the group. Looking through history, you’ve seen this before in places where there is a lack of moral leadership from the top or long-term situational stress leading to demoralization and breakdown of discipline. It would be curious to know exactly where the stress is coming from...
