President Barack Obama
This latest scandal occurred after President Obama appointed Joseph Clancy the new Secret Service Director, due to the number of scandals that hit the beleaguered agency. Secret Service agents engaged in misconduct such as patronizing prostitutes, negligently allowing a knife carrying intruder to make it all the way into the White House and being on call while bullets hits the front of the national residence on separate occasions, while the president's daughters were in the property.

The two employees involved have been reassigned to non-supervisory, non-operational assignments, a Secret Service official said. Obama is aware of the allegations and supports the decision to turn the investigation over to Homeland Security, said an administration official, requesting anonymity to discuss the personnel matter.
