It was a wild night of partying that included whiskey, hookers, and possibly, drug use. And for President Obama’s Secret Service men living it up last week in Cartagena, they could have got away with it… if it hadn’t been for one man’s refusal to pay the $800 fee for the prostitute.
Instead, he offered her a mere $30, which led to police being called to the luxury hotel where the agents were staying at, and all involved, being busted.
Now, the woman who was involved in the scandal is speaking out, saying she is “scared”.
The 24-year-old escort recalls that she and one of the agents agreed the agent would pay her $800 for sex at the hotel.
But the next day, the agent in question offered her a fraction of the price and a heated exchange took place.
In an interview in Colombia with The New York Times, she said the two argued after the agent initially offered to pay her about $30 and the situation escalated, eventually ending with Colombian law enforcement involved. She said she was eventually paid about $225.
Days later, she said a friend told her the argument had made the news, and to her shock, she discovered the man was a Secret Service agent.
“I’m scared,’ she said, adding that she did not want the man in question to be reprimanded, and fears retaliation, the Times reports.
“This is something really big,’ she added. ‘This is the government of the United States. I have nervous attacks. I cry all the time”.
This comes on the back of the new that three Secret Service men have been fired in the wake of questionable behaviour at the Hotel Caribe last week, with some now under investigation for possible drug use, ABC News reports.
