The Drug Enforcement Agency chief is taking fire from Congress over internal reports stating that agents have engaged in sex parties on the government’s dime since 2001. One lawmaker also called for the chief to resign.
Documents released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform show reports of misconduct dating back to 2001. One report indicates that prostitutes at a 2003 retirement party for a high-ranking DEA official were paid out of the operational budget for the DEA field office in Colombia. One witness told the government inspectors that he contracted prostitutes for at least 15 DEA sex parties.
