Secret Service Agent Leaves Gun on Romney's Plane

A Secret Service agent was pulled off Mitt Romney's campaign plane after accidentally leaving her loaded handgun in the bathroom, the New York Times reports.

"By all accounts, the gun appeared to have been left inadvertently, and Mr. Romney was never considered in any danger. The agent involved stayed behind in Indianapolis to address the matter with her supervisors when Mr. Romney returned to Tampa for the remainder of the Republican National Convention. Romney campaign aides were told about the episode but referred questions to the Secret Service."
