A couple of takeaways from perusing the Secret Service Inquiry trap. First, if you are going to hire prostitutes on a work trip to Colombia where you are charged with protecting the US President and you don’t want to get caught, pay the ladies what they ask. Second, the secret service does have lady service members and these women are reportedly very useful when Michelle Obama needs to pee (fair enough). Third, call me cynical, but I have a very hard time believing anyone finds these allegations hard to believe.
So as charges grow to include drugs, folks get fired, and Romney tells us all what he’d do about it, remember that studies suggest that power may increase promiscuity and the list of federal political sex scandals in the US is not a short one. So while I won’t make excuses, I’m not going to act shocked at the behavior of the Secret Service. At least they’re keeping a close eye on Ted Nugent.
