Three more Secret Service employees are being forced out in connection with the prostitution scandal in Columbia, agency assistant Director Paul S. Morrissey said Tuesday evening.
Two resigned and the third had his security clearance revoked, which essentially ends his career at the agency, New York GOP Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told Fox News.
In addition, two other Secret Service employees were cleared of serious misconduct, which concludes the investigation of the agency employees so far identified in the scandal.
The Secret Service has investigated a total 12 people in connection with the incident. Six others were forced out last week and one other employee was cleared.
In total, nine have been forced out and three have been cleared.
