If the current Secret Service Scandal wasn’t bad enough, what with the hookers and allegations of drug use, they have now taken a turn for the worst… if that is possible,
One of the agents who has been named in the Colombian prostitute debacle is David Randall Chaney, a 48-year-old supervisor.
Now photos from his Facebook page have come to light, and one in particular has caught the attention of former vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Pailn.
In 2008, during her campaign run, Randall was in charge of ensuring her safety. Instead, he posted the photo above and wrote that he was “really checking out” .
He posted numerous pictures with her in the foreground and him standing in the background wearing a suit and dark glasses.
After a friend suggested that Chaney had “real chemistry” with the Alaska governor, he replied: “I was really checking her out, if you know what I mean?”
Ms Palin yesterday hit back at the married agent’s inappropriate comments.
“This agent was kind of ridiculous in posting pictures and comments about checking someone out,” she said on Fox News. “Well check this out, bodyguard – you’re fired! And I hope his wife… sends him to the dog house.”
“A lot of people will say this is boys being boys, and boys will be boys, but they shouldn’t be in positions of authority. I think it’s pretty embarrassing.I’ve had enough of these men being dogs and not being responsible.”
She also said it was “a symptom of government run amok”, adding: “The president, for one, he better be wary, there, of when Secret Service is accompanying his family on vacation. They may be checking out the first lady instead of guarding her.”
The other supervisor who has been forced out of the service has been identified as Greg Stokes, who was in charge of the K-9 division of the agency.
Chaney was forced to retire amid the Colombian hooker scandal, but evidently always had an eye for the ladies, posting these other snaps on his Facebook page
In one, Chaney’s seen grinning mischievously as two pretty blondes plant kisses on each cheek, and he writes: “Chicks really dig Secret Service Agents.”
None of the other nine suspended agents – one of whom has resigned – have been named. But, that however, will just be a matter of time.
Yesterday, it was revealed that this is the escort, known only as Dania, who is at the centre of the scandal.
We feel, before this debacle snowballs any further, Obama must address it again. His silence over the new allegations doesn’t do him any favors, especially now that Sarah Palin is involved.
