Inspector General: No widespread misconduct found at Secret Service in wake of scandal
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, December 20, 2013 10:07 AM EST
A Homeland Security Department's inspector general's report says there is no evidence of widespread misconduct within the Secret Service.
The inspector general's office made its conclusions based on a survey answered by about 41 percent of the agency's staff and interviews with 200 managers and supervisors.
In April 2012, 13 agents and officers were accused of carousing with female foreign nationals at a Cartagena, Colombia, hotel where they were staying in advance of President Barack Obama's arrival.
Some of the women were prostitutes and the incident became public after one prostitute and an agent fought over payment.
