“There have been allegations of misconduct made against Secret Service personnel” in the Colombian port city, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said, refusing to confirm that prostitution was involved.
But Jon Adler, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, told the Washington Post the accusations relate to at least one agent having involvement with prostitutes in Cartagena.
Donovan said the incidents in question occurred before the President’s arrival Friday night.
The White House had no comment.
Obama was attending a leaders’ dinner Friday night at Cartagena’s historic Spanish fortress.
