Secret Service Agents Relieved of Duty in Prostitution Scandal

Secret Service agents sent to Colombia ahead of President Obama were sent home amid allegations of misconduct, CNN reports.

"The incident -- reportedly related to involvement with prostitutes in Cartagena -- overshadowed the start of the sixth Summit of the Americas, where the president was to focus on trade, energy and regional security."

Ronald Kessler, author of In the President's Service, said it's "the biggest scandal in Secret Service history."

According to Kessler, "One of the agents did not pay one of the prostitutes, and she complained to the police."
