How to Become a Bounty Hunter



DEA Agents Receive Lax Punishment Over ‘Sex Parties;’ Some Get Promoted

The head of the DEA has come under fire over lax punishments for DEA agents accused of participating in “sex parties” with prostitutes in Columbia, The Huffington Post reports.

In fact, some of the accused agents received promotions. No one was fired.

Allegations of a sex party emerged last month following a critical report from the Justice Department’s Inspector General.

While one of the accused agents retired, the others were suspended for between one and 10 days.

DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart defended the actions before Congress.

Lawmakers were not happy.

“This new internal report details years of allegations — beginning in 2001 — that portray DEA agents as completely out of control,”  Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, said in a statement Tuesday. “They appear to have fraternized with cartel members, accepted lavish gifts, and paid for prostitutes with no concern for the negative repercussions or security vulnerabilities they created.”
