Photos of the Colombian escort caught up in a prostitution scandal that has caused three Secret Service agents to lose their job hit the Web on Thursday. According to the New York Daily News, the woman, a 24-year-old single mother, is known as Dania.
An alleged argument between Dania and an agent has led to the investigation of 11 Secret Service agents and at least 10 military personnel who have been accused of hiring prostitutes and engaging in misconduct while in Cartagena, Colombia, ahead of President Barack Obama's visit. Obama was visiting Colombia last week for the Summit of the Americas.
Prostitution is legal in Colombia, but the military personnel may end up facing prosecution under U.S. military rules of conduct. The investigation continues.
The Associated Press on Wednesday said that one supervisor was allowed to retire and that another will be fired for cause. The third agent, who is not a supervisor, has chosen to resign. Reports are that there could be more agents let go soon. The other eight agents are still on administrative leave and their security clearances have been revoke.
The New York Times reported that a woman said she that she got into an argument with one of the agents in a room at the Hotel Caribe. The two were arguing over the price for her service the previous night. The agent reportedly wanted to pay her $30 for a service that cost $800.
Eventually, the Colombian police got involved and the incident overshadowed Obama's trip.
