Three Secret Service Members Out of the Agency Amid Scandal
Three Secret Service employees are no longer part of the agency as a result of the recent prostitution scandal in Colombia, which involved 11 secret service agents.
The three agents, who resigned Wednesday, were not identified.
However in a statement, the agency said one of the former employees was a supervisor who was allowed to retire.
Another was a supervisor who was fired with 30 days notice and a chance to respond to the firing with the help of a lawyer.
The third employee, who is not a supervisor, resigned.
The remaining eight agents are still on administrative leave.
The Secret Service says the investigation into the allegations of misconduct by the agents is still in its early stages.
Separate U.S. government investigations are being done in Columbia and Washington D.C.
The allegations accuse the agents of bringing prostitutes into their hotel room in Cartagena, Columbia last week.
In addition to the eleven agents, the scandal involves at least ten military service members and around 20 women prostitutes.
U.S. military officials said that of the 10 military personnel involved, five are members of the Army's Green Berets.
The rest of the group includes two Marine dog-handlers, two Navy Explosive Ordinance Disposal technicians and an Air force airman.
An Air Force colonel is leading the military-side of the investigation.
