Secret Service Changes Being Considered

October 9, 2014 9:56 am

WASHINGTON (AP) — A key lawmaker is asking new questions about whether the White House covered up allegations that a volunteer aide was involved in a Secret Service prostitution scandal.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (CHAFE-its) says there’s compelling evidence that a volunteer member of the White House advance team had a prostitute in his hotel room during a trip to Colombia two years ago.

A scandal during that trip led to the firing of more than a half-dozen Secret Service agents.

At that time, White House officials denied that anyone on the team was involved with prostitutes, and officials denied it again Thursday.
