In March we did a post on drug cartel funded orgies (or “sex parties,” whatever) in which DEA agents participated. But it seems this wasn’t an isolated or even a group of isolated incidents. The DEA has a long history with hookers it appears. One “high ranking” DEA official even had prostitutes at his going away party.
But don’t light up a joint.
And get this, the head of the DEA says because of federal employee rules she couldn’t fire any of the guys who engaged in this behavior.

Lawmakers from both parties said they were dumbfounded that Attorney General Eric Holder found it necessary to send a memo last week reminding department employees not to engage with prostitutes.
“Hello? Am I missing something?” Cummings said. “I think we are at an all-time low here.”
Walker said he also was surprised at the memo — calling it “ludicrous” — but said the message from Holder did not specify how officials will be punished if they violate the directive.
From previous actions, it appears the Justice Department’s response to employees who solicit prostitutes is “Hey, maybe take a few days off,” Walker said.
