Although the U.S. Secret Service placed 11 agents on administrative leave (1), it is entirely possible that no one will get fired over the prostitution scandal in Colombia.
I say this because this administration has trouble firing or prosecuting anyone who does something wrong:
- Operation Fast and Furious [Wiki] - no one fired. Actually one person was fired, ATF Agent Vince Cefalu, who blew the whistle on Fast and Furious.
- The General Services Administration’s conference spending scandal (2) - no one fired.
- The Solyndra Scandal (3) - no one fired.
- Black Panthers voter intimidation scandal (4) - no one arrested; also see my article Obama and His Racist Black Panther Friends.
- Black Panthers Bounty on Zimmerman Dead or Alive scandal (5) - no one arrested.
The Washington Post, 11 Secret Service agents put on leave amid prostitution inquiry
The U.S. Secret Service on Saturday placed 11 agents on administrative leave as the agency investigates allegations that the men brought prostitutes to their hotel rooms in Cartagena, Colombia, on Wednesday night and that a dispute ensued with one of the women over payment the following morning.
A General Services Administration official who first raised questions about overspending at a 2010 Las Vegas conference said Tuesday that she supported the findings of a government investigation and the steps taken in response to the controversy.
"I share your anger and disappointment in GSA's conduct," said Susan Brita, a GSA deputy administrator, at a House Transportation Committee hearing on the scandal that has raised questions of systemic abuses of spending by the government procurement agency.
She said that among the steps taken was seeking reimbursement from GSA officials for government money spent on private parties and other personal benefits they received.
ChristianPost.com, Obama Administration Subpoenaed Over Solyndra Scandal
Solyndra received a loan guarantee for $535 million in 2009 and went bankrupt two months ago. Shortly after the bankruptcy, the FBI raided Solyndra offices and the home of the president of Solyndra.
The House Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations has been investigating whether the White House inappropriately pushed the Office of Management and Budget to approve the loan, and inappropriately restructured Solyndra's loan. Questions have also been raised about the involvement of Obama fundraiser and Solyndra investor George Kaiser, an Oklahoma billionaire.
Attorney General Eric Holder finally got fed up Tuesday with claims that the Justice Department went easy in a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party because they are African American.
Holder's frustration over the criticism became evident during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing as Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) accused the Justice Department of failing to cooperate with a Civil Rights Commission investigation into the handling of the 2008 incident in which Black Panthers in intimidating outfits and wielding a club stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia.
