Three Additional Secret Service Employees Said to Leave Agency

April 20 (Bloomberg) -- Three more U.S. Secret Service employees suspected of consorting with prostitutes while preparing for President Barack Obama’s arrival at a summit in Colombia are leaving the agency, said a congressional aide familiar with the matter.

The Secret Service briefed congressional staff today on the status of the employees, said the aide, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly.

The agency announced on April 18 that two other employees linked to the prostitution case left the agency, and that a third was in the process of being dismissed.

The employees were in Cartagena making security preparations in advance of the Summit of the Americas. Obama’s agenda at the economic and trade summit, which concluded April 15, was overshadowed by allegations of misconduct by the Secret Service employees and military support staff.
