A Secret Service agent shamed the United States after a wild night of babes and booze that ended in an argument with a Colombian hooker over as little as $47.
One of 11 elite agents assigned to ensure President Obama's protection at a summit meeting in Cartagena, Colombia, was busted after his lady of the evening refused to leave his hotel room in the morning without her fee.
That woman was one of 11 hookers hired by the agents - and the only one who hadn't left Cartagena's swank Hotel Caribe, where White House staffers, members of the press and dignitaries are staying during the Summit of the Americas meeting, sources said.
President Obama's Secret Service team was reeling from a prostitution scandal.
The confrontation occurred early last week, said Rep. Pete King, a Long Island Republican who was briefed on the incident yesterday.
One of the agents sent home after agency bosses in DC learned what was going on was "in a supervisory role,â€ said King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.
A hotel employee told The Associated Press that agents arrived at the beachfront hotel a week ago and drank heavily during their stay.
Prostitution is legal in much of Colombia inside "tolerance zones" controlled by police. The going rate for hookers in Cartagena is around $47, according to Colombian TV.
