Obama Weighs In On Secret Service Prostitution Scandal

At a press conference Sunday with the Colombian president, President Obama weighed in on the prostitution scandal involving Secret Service agents.

He said an investigation is underway, and that he expects it to be “thorough and I expect it to be rigorous. If it turns out that that the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then of course I’ll be angry.”

“When we travel to another country, I expect us to observe the highest standards because we’re not just representing ourselves. We’re here on behalf of our people,” Obama said.
