A Secret Service agent assigned to protect Vice President Pence was suspended after an alleged meet-up with a prostitute in a Maryland hotel.

The Secret Service told the Washington Post it “is aware of an alleged incident involving an off-duty Secret Service employee.” 

The agency required the agent, who was placed on administrative leave, to surrender all equipment.

“We are exploring the full range of disciplinary actions,” the spokesman said.

After police responded to a call about suspicious activity in a hotel room in Maryland, the agent was arrested and charged with solicitation.

“The Secret Service takes allegations of criminal activity very seriously,” the spokesman said in the statement.

“The Secret Service is committed to ensuring that all employees are held to the highest level of professional and ethical standards of conduct.”

Secret Service Faces Serious Challenges to Meet Demands of Trump Family

The Secret Service has been forced to make cost-cutting concessions because of the increasing demands and rising costs of protecting the new first family.

The strain of the demands has resulted in the Secret Service pulling dozens of agents from criminal investigations to serve two-week stints to protect members of the Trump family, the New York Times reports. 

One of the extra burdens is protecting the first lady and youngest son in Manhattan’s Trump Tower. The family’s travel habits also have required agents to work more overtime hours and spend more time away from home. In addition, the Secret Service is protecting Mar-a-Lago in Florida.

“They are flat-out worn out,” said Representative Jason Chaffetz, Republican of Utah, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

“It’s like being on a bike that you never get off of,” said the committee’s top-ranking Democratic member, Representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired Marin general, is said to be in favor over the appointment of a general to lead the Secret Service and help shakeup the beleaguered agency.

The announcement is expected to be made next week.

The identity of the candidate has not been revealed.

At least six Secret Service agents and officers are expected to be disciplined after a man jumped White House fences and managed to stay on the property for nearly 17 minutes before being captured.

The Secret Service blamed “lapses in security protocol” that allowed the man to jump the fences undetected while Trump was inside the White House, CNN reported.

The disciplinary action will be handled by the Secret Service’s Office of Professional Responsibility, and a final judgment on discipline will be made by the Office of Integrity.

The Secret Service expressed frustration with the incident in a statement last week.

“The men and women of the Secret Service are extremely disappointed and angry in how the events of March 10th transpired,” the statement read.

“Immediate steps have been taken to mitigate lapses in security protocols even as the investigation continues. These steps include additional posts, technology enhancements, and response protocols.”
