Scandal

Prostitute Refused to Leave Hotel

Police were called to the hotel room of a Secret Service agent in Colombia Friday when a prostitute locked herself in an agent's room, refusing to leave the hotel until she was paid. The detail is the latest to be released in the scandal embroiling Secret Service agents in Colombia. Rep. Peter King, who heads the House Homeland Security Committee, said he had learned of the inner happenings of the imbroglio Sunday. Eleven agents, including two supervisors, were sent back to the U.S. after bringing prostitutes back to their hotel in Cartagena prior to the arrival of President Obama.
