Secret Service Investigation into Sexual Misconduct Is Bungled by Federal Officials

Steve Neavling

Investigations into the U.S. Secret Service have been bungled by senators and plagued with nepotism allegations against an inspector general, according to congressional and government sources, the Washington Times reports.

Despite allegations of sexual misconduct against a Secret Service agent, Sen. Claire McCaskill has demanded an end to the investigation, and Deputy Inspector General Charles K. Edwards is accused of abusing agency resources and hiring his wife.

Additional reports indicate Edwards was asked by Homeland Security officials to water down an audit.

At stake is the reputation of the Secret Service, the Washington Times reported.
