Democracy Now: Secret Service Head Apologizes for Prostitution Scandal
The head of the Secret Service appeared before Congress Wednesday to publicly apologize for the Colombian prostitution scandal for the first time. Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan spoke at a hearing of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
Mark Sullivan: “Clearly, the misconduct that took place in Cartagena, Colombia, is not representative of these values or of the high ethical standards we demand from our nearly 7,000 employees. I am deeply disappointed and I apologize for the misconduct of these employees and the distraction that it has caused.”
