    In all honesty, I think they are making this into more of a big deal than it is. I get he's secret service, and obviously what he did was stupid and should have some type of consequence, but it should be done privately and internally within the organization. Not playing out in public. The guy made a stupid decision, got drunk, met a girl in a bar and ended up in his hotel room with her. I realize he's secret service, but from what it sounds like, he didn't broadcast it, nothing of importance was in his room. He likely was drunk and didn't realize she was a prostitute. She even backs that up in her description of what happened. Let the agency handle it internally and lets move on. Sadly in today's media world, I doubt that will happen, everyone will jump on the bandwagon demanding heads roll and careers are ended. I grew up in Europe and always thought America was more liberal until I moved here. One thing I have always noticed in America is that when someone steps out of line, it becomes a witch hunt.
