Sen. Johnson on Secret Service scandal

Four Secret Service agents who were dismissed during the prostitution scandal in Cartagena, Colombia are fighting back, saying they are being used as scapegoats to cover up a culture that’s been tolerated for a long time.

Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan will be testifying in front of the Senate Homeland Security Committee about the scandal for the first time today.

On Starting Point this morning, Sen. Ron Johnson calls the Secret Service misconduct a “sad revelation” and says that he’s interested in finding out how pervasive this type of behavior is at today’s hearing.

While Johnson says that Sullivan seems to genuinely want to get to the bottom of the situation, he asserts that it’s important to determine whether or not the scandal is in fact part of a larger, accepted culture in one of the government’s most respected agencies.
