The DEA Likes Prostitutes, Too, Allegedly


Secret Service agents don’t have all the fun: Three Drug Enforcement Administration agents are now under investigation for hiring prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, CBS reports. The Department of Justice Inspector General said in a statement that the DEA office is “investigating allegations about potential misconduct” unrelated to the Cartagena hotel Secret Service incident. The alleged questionable activity also occurred in April at the time of President Obama’s Colombia visit, but the DEA’s probe is separate from the ongoing Secret Service investigation that resulted in the termination and resignation of several agents. CBS reports that the tip on the DEA’s possible misconduct came from a Secret Service agent questioned in that matter. Apparently secrecy only goes so far.
