Prostitute scandal in Colombia results in new State Department guidelines
The prostitution sex scandal that caused the firing or resignations of several Secret Service members, has also prompted new guidelines for agent conduct while they are on and off duty.
The State Department, on Thursday, announced new "sex life" regulations that ban the use of prostitutes by Secret Service agents, even if they are working in a country where prostitution is legal.

The scandal erupted last week, after President Obama's three-day trip to Colombia, where as many as 12 agents were said to have taken prostitutes back to their hotel. High ranking government officials and lawmakers believed it to be a serious security breach, as agents are privy to sensitive information about the president and his family.
