Senator Chuck Grassley, Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee released the following statement after the Secret Service announced that one supervisory agent would retire, a second supervisory agent would be recommended for removal, and a third agent would resign in the fall-out of the Colombia prostitution scandal.

“I’ve always said that if heads don’t roll, the culture in a federal agency will never change.  Today’s personnel actions, combined with the swift removal and investigation, are positive signs that there is a serious effort to get to the bottom of this scandal.  There’s no question the agency and the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General will need to dig deep to learn the full extent of the allegations from Colombia and to determine if there is a broader culture that needs to be addressed.”
