New probes launched into prostitution scandal

A fourth congressional committee will look into the Secret Service prostitution scandal in Colombia, joining the acting inspector general of the Department of Homeland Security as well as internal reviews by the agency, the military and the White House.

The top legislators on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee said Tuesday they sent a letter to Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan asking for information on the incident last month in Cartagena, Colombia, that has resulted in nine agents resigning or in the process of being forced out.

=Three other Secret Service agents were cleared of serious misconduct, and the military is investigating the alleged involvement of 12 service members.

    Hope the fine ladies of the night got their money upfront before the new probes were launched into them.

    The hiphop nation which glorified black on black violence was summom against BLACK AMERICA by the white feminists( THE DEVIL'S CONCUBINES) who were the most vocal in their toward black america and who were the most vocal in the demanding the deportation of native born blacks to AFRICA , and it was this act as well as the widespead use of racial profiling in which many black americans were arrested and either martyred within the prison system or were deported to AFRICA ,where many of them were martyred there and were buried in mass graves in both the SUDAN ,and in the CONGO 1968-1993-2001, is what has contributed to the black holocaust ..Mean while a new demonic BLACK AMERICA has arisen from both the black antebellum and hiphop nation and is based on sterotypical images of low class ,poverty stricken and criminally prone blacks and has replace the black human population in AMERICAt

    Well I guess the monitor did not like the use of my word s e x. Nothing else that would have kicked it out. Anyway I suppose this little bit of strange will cost them big time. Probably cost them their marriage as well as this great job. .
