After the Secret Service disrupted a cancer vigil over the weekend, the agency’s director apologized Monday.
Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy pledged to investigate why his agency forced parents and their cancer-stricken children from a park near the White House.
Clancy met with Mike Gillette, an advocate for CureFest for Childhood Cancer.
“He was very open and honest, saying that they (Secret Service) made a mistake,” Gillette said. “We never thought there was any malice intended. We’re just a bunch of families who care about kids with cancer.”
The Secret Service cleared the park because President Obama was attending an event outside of the White House on Saturday night.
