The DEA is refusing to answer questions about three of its agents who are still on the federal payroll despite their alleged involvement in a prostitution scandal in Colombia, the Washington Examiner reports .
The accusations are serious. DEA agents are accused of paying for a prostitute for a Secret Service supervisor and obstructing the investigation by lying and destroying evidence, the Examiner wrote.
“And they are still on the job a year later,” state Rep. Frank Wolf, R-VA said. “That’s just not a good thing.”
The scandal broke in April 2012 when a dozens Secret Service agents were in Cartagena, Columbia, to prepare for a trip by President Obama.
