Sarah Palin now weighing in on the Secret Service prostitution scandal that is on -- in Columbia.
After it was revealed that one of the ousted supervisors.
Was actually on her.
And then took an opportunity to joke about it.
But he was checking her out in this picture that he posted.
With him with Sarah -- on his FaceBook page you can believe that the former Alaska governor says that President Obama should take this situation very seriously.
It's a symptom of government run amok -- Greta and -- and it's like hey you know who's minding the store around here and when it comes to this particular issue a Secret Service again.
Plane with a tax payers dime and playing with prostitutes and check it out those whom they are guarding.
You know I didn't the president for one he he better be wary -- When -- -- Secret Service is accompanying his family on vacation they may be checking out the First Lady instead of guarding her.
Well -- by Gina brother is a Secret Service agent who was in Columbia during this scandal but was not involved.
And -- by geno is a former Secret Service agent just retired of about a year ago he worked for President Bush.
And worked for President Obama did about 27 trips with them including being the lead.
On a number of overseas trips for the president -- he is intimately involved.
In this organization understands it well he is also now since he left the Secret Service -- Republican senate candidate.
Good to have you here Dan welcome very much welcomed back this morning.
It has firm I'm sure having you know served for as many years as you did in two administrations and taking this worked very seriously -- -- -- from.
Everything that you have said and written on this subject that this must be very upsetting to you not to mention the fact that your brother I was also on on the strap.
That's a devastating story personally and professionally it's a proud agency I'm very proud of my history with the Secret Service and that it's really a shame that this incident is.
Tarnish their reputation which is really sterling and -- we need to put in perspective a 150 year history.
And the Secret Service how many times you see the Secret Service on the front pages and news.
Rarely if ever so it's a shame and I and I hope the public can forgive the agency and they're doing all the right things right now.
I wanna play a little bit more of the sound from Sarah Palin and and get your thoughts on this FaceBook posting which seems to me to be you know just the antithesis of what you would expect.
Not a Secret Service agent in terms of his -- that let's listen to separate from -- The president and the CE all of this operation called our federal government.
Has got to start cracking down on these agencies he is the head of the administrative branch and always different departments in the administration.
That now people are seen.
Things that are so in this within these departments in the buck stops with the president and he's really got to start cracking down and an eagle -- all.
A lot of people will just I guess.
Say that this is boys being boys and boys will be boys but they shouldn't be in positions of authority and yeah I think it's pretty embarrassing.
But if you consider what's going on in the state of our government's -- you know what -- the show at least.
Boys not considering that there are ramifications for their actions whether comes to budget.
Had a congress and the White House to GSA over spends too.
The Secret Service scandals you know I have enough of these men being dogs.
And you go up here in what Sarah Palin is saying there.
That she's suggesting that it's this administration that has sort of let a lot of this slept.
You worked in both administrations in a Secret Service any difference in the way that that they treated this agency.
Now now not at all and I think it's important paint that contrast here especially given the GSA scandal and the Secret Service scandal going on now.
-- -- -- everyone in the GSA image -- a number of people pleading the fifth and and not talking and and you have the Secret Service which is saying all the right things.
We're embarrassed we apologize we take responsibility there's a vigorous investigation ongoing.
There's really nothing more they can do at this point to say okay we did it we're investigating those involved are going to be punished.
And I think that's the way it needs to be handled -- -- they're not absolving anyone of any responsibility on the other hand.
You're seeing it with the GSA again people taking the fifth that not appropriate again if you take taxpayer dollars.
Did I'm sure you can understand you know it act as an insider -- outsiders look at this they say well gee you know lot.
Maybe this time they just got hot this this feels like it was such a large group and about American military as well it it.
Feels like something that you just sort of -- happens more happening in -- Now while Martha I'm not speaking on behalf of the secrets -- I don't know than anything -- don't work there anymore I've been gone for a year but I can tell you in my twelve years they live a regimented almost militaristic type existence those advance trips there's no time for sleeping no less.
Out out cavorting and we know many meals we missed.
-- you're talking about an elite group of men and women -- -- who are out there every day saying.
I go first not the present United States a sacrifice it children's birthdays timed their own health and it's really -- -- That this incidents target.
I gotta go but just quickly before we go what what -- you to leave the service and decide to run -- us it's time for an outsider to start changing things on the inside.
All right Dan -- now thank you so much for being with us out thanks well they experience that you guys are --
