Governor Palin spoke to Greta Van Susteren. They discussed one secret service agent involved in the recent scandal who revealed that--instead of fully focusing on his job to protect her--he was "checking her out" during the 2008 campaign.
The Washington Post reports:
One of the Secret Service supervisors ousted from the agency this week for their involvement in the Colombia prostitution scandal made light of his official protective work on his Facebook page, joking about a picture of himself standing watch behind Sarah Palin.
David Randall Chaney, 48, posted several shots of himself on duty in a dark suit and sunglasses, including one that shows him behind the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee during that campaign.
“I was really checking her out, if you know what i mean?” Chaney wrote in the comments section after friends had marveled at the photo. He is married and has an adult son.
I'm sure the behavior of these agents isn't representative of most of our agents, but I have to agree with Nancy Pelosi--probably for the first time--when she calls the secret service scandal "disgusting." Of course it is.
