When the secret service prostitution scandal first broke in 2012, Spirit Airlines ran a sale.
But it turns out that wasn’t the only travel angle to the story, aside from the fact that it occurred in Cartagena.
The story is back in the news because of a recent news report that the Administration was aware that one of their own advance team members (and not just secret service) had a prostitute spend the night at the hotel where the President would be staying.
DHS inspector general’s office investigation found that he didn’t pay the hotel’s extra person charge for the prostitute who spent the night in his room. But it turns out he didn’t break any rules Why?
[H]otel officials had waived a fee normally charged to guests staying overnight. Hilton Worldwide officials in Virginia said their records showed Dach “was not charged for additional guest as a benefit of Hilton Honor Member.”
Unfortunately for him, the HHonors program didn’t absolve him of the need to register his overnight guest — just to pay the hotel for her stay.
