DEA Sex scandal report reveals sex parties and orgies.Watch
The report showed High-ranking Drug Enforcement Agency officials andtheir field agents threw wild sex parties with hookers hired by Colombiandrug lords, the feds charged Thursday.
At least 10 federal workers partied with prostitutes paid for by drugcartels at private “living quarters” — as American taxpayers footed thebill for the playboy pad, according to a report released by the JusticeDepartment.
The findings of the four-year review, issued Thursday by the Departmentof Justice inspector general, found 26 cases involving the solicitationof prostitutes abroad – with the DEA is mentioned in 19 of them – and,while report does not identify the country where the alleged sex partiesoccurred, it does mention the existence of designated "tolerancezones" where prostitution is allowed and which are a fixture ofseveral cities in Colombia.
“Although some of the DEA agents participating in these parties deniedit, the information in the case file suggested they should have known theprostitutes in attendance were paid with cartel funds,” the report byInspector General Michael Horowitz states.
The romps “created potential security risks for the DEA and for theagents . . . potentially exposing them to extortion, blackmail orcoercion.”
In one case, special agents allegedly bought prostitutes for a seniorofficial’s farewell bash.
In another, a regional director failed to report his underlings were“frequenting a brothel,” according to the report.
Seven of the 10 agents, who were not named in the report, admitted theyhad been to the orgies, held between 2005 and 2008.
They were slapped on the wrist with two- to 10-day suspensions, accordingto the Justice report.
A DEA inspector defended the behavior by saying, “Prostitution isconsidered a part of the local culture and is tolerated in certainareas,’’ the report says.
Three special agents were also showered with money, expensive gifts andweapons from drug- cartel members.
The Justice Department inspector general uncovered the DEA's sex partiesafter allegations arose about misconduct by the Secret Service and DEAagents in the 2012 prostitution scandal in Colombia. The IG on Thursdayreleased a 97-page report detailing the allegations, including anexplosive charge that local drug cartels funded the "sexparties."
The investigation focused on sexual misconduct at the DEA, FBI, USMarshals Service, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms andExplosives.
The Regional Director of A Foreign Affair, an international datingservice with offices throughout Colombia, says, "We routinely get USfederal employees from DEA to Military in our offices, some looking forreal relationships, but many just looking for party girls. They usuallyleave once they realize that we are a marriage service not a sex tourcompany. Also our staff has been trained to look for signs of men whomare married, keeping an eye open for the white ring on the left handwhere a wedding ring was recently removed." We are here to help menfind that special Colombian lady, not to provide adult services to thosefew men who give the USA a bad reputation."
