No Staff Involved In Prostitution Scandal, WH Says

No White House staff members were involved in a Colombian prostitution scandal that has plagued both the Secret Service and the Pentagon for over a week, according to the White House.

President Obama’s top spokesman said Monday that no White House staff members were involved in a Colombian prostitution scandal that has plagued both the Secret Service and the Pentagon for over a week.

During his briefing with reporters today, White House Press Secretary Jay Carey said that an internal review of the matter revealed no indecent actions taken by any White House employees who serve as travel scouts for Obama when he visits other countries.

“There’s no indication that any member of the White House advance team engaged in any improper conduct or behavior.”

Carney said that the White House-led investigation into the matter was driven by the need to perform “due diligence.” The spokesman added that the review began on Friday and concluded on Sunday.
