The Secret Service says three employees are out of the agency in the wake of a prostitution scandal in Colombia.

Another is a supervisor who has been designated for removal for cause, which requires that the employee be given 30 days’ notice and a chance to respond with the help of a lawyer; and a third employee, not a supervisor, has quit.
