TheDailyBeast: Prostitutes in Colombia and More Embarrassing Secret Service Moments

Monica Lewinsky Scandal

The Monica Lewinsky scandal was not the Secret Service’s finest hour. According to grand jury testimony, agents often ignored certain standard rules when dealing with Lewinsky. One agent cleared a package that she had brought without checking its contents. "If she was going to do any harm to the president,” the agent said, “she would do something along the lines of Lorena Bobbitt and that I couldn't stop." Agents would also routinely place bets on how soon Bill Clinton would get to the Oval Office after Lewinsky had arrived. When the grand jury was convened, the Secret Service tried to keep its agents from testifying, saying doing so would erode the relationship between the president and the agents who needed to be near him. A judge eventually ruled against that argument and forced the agents to testify.
