The Secret Service has released 229 pages’ worth of details about accusations made against Secret Service personnel since 2004 concerning “claims of involvement with prostitutes, leaking sensitive information, publishing pornography, sexual assault, illegal wiretaps, improper use of weapons and drunken behavior,” The Associated Press reports.
Important note: the list apparently deals with accusations, not confirmed cases of misconduct.
We’ll pass along more about this as the story develops.
The list was released in response to Freedom of Information Act requests from the AP and other news organizations, which sought the information after word broke about Secret Service personnel cavorting with prostitutes in Colombia. [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
