At a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano appeared ready to convinced that the prostitution scandal involving Secret Service agents posed no threat to President Obama's security.
Napolitano telling committee members that "the allegations are inexcusable, and that they take them very seriously." She went to say that her first question to Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan was whether or not the conduct presented a risk to the president, to which Sullivan replied no.
The HHS Secretary went on to say Director Sullivan has her and the president's complete confidence.
When asked about what sort of training agents receive regarding conduct, Napolitano responded that the training in focused on "professionalism, on conduct consistent with the highest moral values and standards."
That statement caught the attention of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who quipped that there was "obviously a system failure here."
Graham went on to ask the HHS Secretary what the likelihood was that this is the first time this sort of behavior occurred.
To which Napolitano responded, "I think part of our investigation in confirming that this was an aberration, ah, or not."
