    The fact that those types of stories are as rare as they are, given the sheer size of the USSS, is worth noting.

    "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!

      surely all of you haven't forgotten this scandal involving more than a dozen agents on a recent trip...http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...

        That incident was bad, but again, look back over the track record.

        I'm not willing to let the actions of a handful of undisciplined people besmirch the reputation of the agency as a whole.

          In my experience, only a fraction of the actual abuses taking place (if any) are ever exposed publicly or punished. So, if one hears of a dozen bad apples, the real figure is likely to be several times that.That worries me.

          If an agency as small as that has dozens of people in critical positions acting irresponsibly, its reputation is undeserved.
