More Secret Service agents involved in the Colombian prostitution scandal are expected to leave their jobs as details emerged and the White House deflected questions on Friday. The identities of two supervisors who lost their jobs were reported on Thursday, and another agent was reportedly leaving the agency voluntarily.
The Washington Post reported that one of the supervisors, David Chaney, joked about Sarah Palin on his Facebook page during the 2008 campaign. The other ousted supervisor, Greg Stokes, an agent in the K-9 unit, plans to come forward early next week to publicly challenge his dismissal from the Secret Service, a source tells ABC News. The AP reported Friday that the Secret Service was expected to announce that three more employees were out of a job White House press secretary Jay Carney said at his briefing with the press on Friday that he was not "in a position to answer questions" about whether the prostitutes came into contact with confidential information.
He also said he's "not prepared to address" whether Secret Service director Mark Sullivan's oversight has been insufficient. Reports of the Secret Service and members of the military cavorting with prostitutes in Colombia broke around the same time that photos of American soldiers posing with the corpses and body parts of Afghan insurgents surfaced.
