DHS Inspector General Report: No Evidence of Widespread Sexual Misconduct in Secret Service

Just isolated incidents then


A long-awaited report analyzing the male-dominated culture of the U.S. Secret Service has concluded that the elite law enforcement agency does not have a widespread problem with its employees engaging in sexual misconduct while on official business.

The findings of the Department of Homeland Security's inspector general come 1½ years after more than a dozen Secret Service agents and officers were implicated in a prostitution scandal on President Obama's trip to Cartagena, Colombia. Congress requested the report after agency officials testified that the behavior was an aberration and not indicative of a broader institutional lack of control and accountability within the agency.
