Under the category of “He better be taking this seriously if he wants to keep his job” comes the conversation Sen. Chuck Grassley had with Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan.
Grassley, the Senate Judiciary Committee’s ranking Republican member, issued a press release Tuesday saying that he was briefed by Sullivan about the latest scandal involving allegations that 11 Secret Service employees hired prostitutes in Colombia before President Obama arrived for a summit.
And guess what? Sullivan is taking this seriously. Really. Does he have a choice?
Here’s what Grassley had to say:
“Director Sullivan called me today to provide the latest on the incident with Secret Service agents and prostitutes in Colombia.It sounds like he’s taking the situation very seriously.
“It was welcome news that he has called on the Inspector General for an independent review. The allegations against a few agents in the Secret Service have given the entire agency a black eye, and a transparent, independent review should help the agency regain some respect from the American taxpayers and from people around the world.”
