WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Three Secret Service agents have been removed from duty after news of a scandal involving prostitutes came to light, CBS News has confirmed.

Of the three, two are supervisors. One supervisor was given the option to retire, while the other was “removed for cause” and has 30 days to appeal the decision.

The third USSS employee was a uniformed officer, who also resigned.

Eight other USSS agents remain on administrative leave, pending the results of the ongoing investigation into the matter.

Actions were taken following accusations of inappropriate conduct with sex workers in Cartagena, Colombia.
