MAYBE IT’S JUST TIME TO ABOLISH THIS TROUBLED AGENCY: Secret Service agents reportedly told to protect home of former director’s assistant. “Members of a top Secret Service unit responsible for patrolling the perimeter of the White House were reportedly pulled off their posts for several weeks in the summer of 2011 and ordered to protect the home of the assistant to the agency’s then-director. The Washington Post, citing three people familiar with the operation, reported late Saturday that the agents were sent to a rural area outside La Plata, Md. in what was known as Operation Moonlight. The paper said that agents were told that they were there because then-Secret Service director Mark Sullivan was concerned that his assistant, Lisa Chopey, was being harassed by her neighbor after an altercation.”

They certainly don’t seem to regard protecting the President as a priority.
