Courtesy of Michael Ravnitsky of the FOIA-L list:

Following a public records request from the Associated Press, the Department
of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General has posted on its web site
a 229 page document identifying descriptions of complaints received about
Secret Service employees.  The astonishing document is located here and is
keyword searchable:

Narratives for Complaints Received by the DHS OIG Relating to U.S. Secret
Service (Redacted) (PDF, 229 pages - 2.80 MB)

... Should anyone be curious about what a FOIA request turned up.


No poll. Just a heads-up.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    US reveals accusations against Secret Service

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Secret Service agents and officers have been accused of involvement with prostitutes, leaking sensitive information, publishing pornography, sexual assault, illegal wiretaps, improper use of weapons and drunken behavior, according to internal government reports reviewed by The Associated Press on Friday. It wasn't immediately clear how many of the accusations turned out to be true....

    Some of the allegations were obviously spurious, such as a complaint in August 2010 that a Secret Service agent had performed experiments and implanted stimulators in a citizen's brain. The list also included dozens of complaints about fraudulent emails that circulate widely on the Internet and appear to come from the Secret Service.

    The choice of our lifetime: Mitt Romney, It Takes A Pillage or President Barack Obama, Forward Together.

    •  Sure, but we first "detain" them, then hold them (0+ / 0-)

      indefinitely without filing charges, and finally after numerous complaints charge them, guilty or not. They do not deserve a better form of "justice" then the rest of us are getting.

    •  Most of these ”complaints" are (0+ / 0-)

      From either CT kooks or people responding to spam bullshit emails. Then there are some random minor complaints about individual agents, unsubstantiated, and in most instances, written by people with 2nd grade grammar and spelling.  Not much here to merit journalistic coverage; even a diary seems like overkill.
