WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Secret Service says three employees are out of the agency in the wake of a prostitution scandal in Colombia.
Of the three workers forced out in the scandal, one is a supervisor who was allowed to retire. Another is a supervisor who has been designated for removal for cause, which requires that the employee be given 30 days' notice and a chance to respond with the help of a lawyer; and a third employee, not a supervisor, has quit.
The agency says its investigation into allegations of misconduct by 11 agents is in its early stages and is still ongoing. The remaining eight agents are on administrative leave.
Secret Service has been investigating charges that the agents brought prostitutes back to their hotel in Cartagena, Colombia, last week.
