The Secret Service agent sex scandal, according to one anonymous Washington Post source, is no big deal because everyone should expect that when you "take a bunch of guys out of the country and have a lot of women showering them with attention" you have to expect that "bad things are bound to happen."
Geez. Really? Is there a limit on what kind of "bad things" will happen?
Is he talking about bad things that include rape if the hooker changes her mind, extortion if she was sent by another country, or murder if she decides to go public to the wife or congressional investigative body later?
It doesn't seem to serve the Secret Service Agency well to insinuate that "boys will be boys" about the sex scandal still generating attention across the country.
It is as if the source wants to pooh-pooh the dereliction of duty actions of their fellow agents. And, unfortunately, too much back-patting and cover-up corruption already exists in Washington and corporations for this approach to be advisable.
If "bad things are bound to happen" when male Secret Service agents protect the president outside the country, then maybe women Secret Service agents are what is needed? The agent sex scandal didn't involve any female agents. And neither did Troopergate, which has been linked to Hookergate.
