She unwittingly thrust the Secret Service into the spotlight and left the government red-faced after it emerged that 11 agents spent a wild night out in Colombia with prostitutes.
Now, Dania Londono Suarez, the woman who caused the furore after one agent refused to pay up, could be ready to tell all, in what would only cause more embarrassment for those involved.
Her lawyer, Marlon Betancourt, is said to negotiating interviews with her with various media outlets for money.
It certainly would be an eye-opening, must-see interview.
This news comes on the back of reports that the scandal, which exploded into the public domain a little more than a week ago, continues to grow with another agent been thrown into the mix.
Six of the 11 agents implicated in the scandal are now out of a job, and the investigation is entering its second week amid new revelations about a prostitute being taken to a sensitive location.
“It just gets more troubling,” Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday.
Five nights before the president’s arrival, a twelfth Secret Service official, who was not previously under investigation, allegedly brought a prostitute to the Hilton Hotel in Cartegena, the hotel where the president later stayed.
“The key thing here is not that they were prostitutes,” Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “It’s the fact that foreign nationals were brought back into a security area on the eve of the trip of the president of the United States goes against everything the Secret Service stands for.”
Another interesting point of note, that this is probably not the first time that something like this occurred. More likely, it’s just the first time that the public has ever had any knowledge of the Secret Service’s wrongdoings.
