BOGOTA, Colombia (MCT) — Mixing business and pleasure might kill some careers, but in Colombia, at least, it’s not necessarily illegal.
At least 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and several U.S. military personnel are being investigated over allegations that they took prostitutes back to the hotel where President Barack Obama would stay for the Summit of the Americas.
The Associated Press reported that Pentagon officials said Monday that the number of military members involved appears to be greater than the five originally cited. AP quoted one senior defense official saying that at least 10 military members may have been involved.
The scandal at the otherwise staid weekend event provoked a strong rebuke from Obama, but the men may not have broken Colombian law.
