    Recently released Secret Service documents spin tales about stolen weapons, wild parties and agents patronizing prostitutes while on duty abroad.

    A report, dated May 2, 2014, says, "A male Secret Service agent assigned to Puerto Rico had his issued firearm stolen by a male prostitute who he solicited online…Inspectors conducted a review of his issued laptop and discovered the solicitation was made using his government computer…The weapon has not been recovered." 

    The 6,441 documents mostly originate from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on the heels of the 2012 Secret Service scandals involving agents bringing Colombian prostitutes to their hotel rooms. 

    One especially striking report at that time details how the manager of a National Threat Assessment Center kept liquor in an office cabinet and forced his subordinates to drink while on duty "so that he could trust them." 

    This same manager was renowned for sexually harassing women who worked for him. One witness recounts "[He] sexually harassed every subordinate female [at the center]…publicly asking male employees, 'Where are my little whores/bitches? Have you slept with them yet?'" 

    The witness also described how the manager pressured women to have sexual relationships with him. "One of the females harassed…may have had voicemail messages [left] more than five [5] times per day via telephone and [the manager] would summon her to his office…He would ask her if she wanted to take showers at his house. [The manager] labeled NTAC the, ‘Nice Tits and Ass Club.'"

    Other reports detail "Wheels up, rings off" parties and an incident of two senior officials being caught with pornography on their computers. One account states that an agent "exposed his genitals and started masturbating in front of [a] woman…The woman wanted to report the incident and [the agent] threatened her with deportation.The woman, an American citizen, told him he couldn’t do that."

    It was also reported that an agent, driving drunk in his government vehicle, called the Secret Service support office, 'to try to get fake identification cards made for [redacted] so they could get into bars." A June 22, 2012, report details "K9 units bringing the dogs into hotel room(s), which get trashed, and people are paid off not to report it." 

    The summary of a DHS interview conducted on June 10, 2012, reads, "[Confidential Source] related another story of an unidentified special agent who missed his…flight out of the country. When he arrived at the airport he was accompanied by two prostitutes but was not disciplined."

    That same day, DHS interviewed a special agent, whose name was redacted, who claimed, "General misconduct is 'swept under the rug.' If USSS management likes you and they want to promote you, allegations against you actually help. The allegations will be held against you as coercion to do activities at the senior management’s direction. The phrase in the USSS is, 'if you don’t want anything, they can’t do anything to you.'"
