A Secret Service employee was arrested Monday for allegedly sending lewd photos and propositioning a police officer he thought was a teenage girl.
In this latest piece in the never-ending Secret Service saga, Lee Robert Moore, 37, admitted taking a photo “depicting exposed, erect penis” and texting it to the cop that he thought was a 14 year old girl.
Moore is being held in state custody in Delaware and a court date hasn’t been set.
The Daily Beast reports:
“What would make you more nervous: Riding on a motorcycle with me or having sex with me?” one of the texts allegedly read. “I would take immense pleasure in pulling those shorts off your hips and down your cute little legs,” read another.
Police say Moore also instructed the “underage girl” on how to masturbate.
“I’m imagining you on your knees in front of me with your hand wrapped around it, staring at it, and looking up at me, and then putting it in your mouth”
The Secret Service has been ridden with scandals for years.
It all seemed to start in November 2009. Tareq and Michaele Salahi crash Obama’s first state dinner. The Secret Service eventually acknowledged that officers never checked to see if they were on the guest list.
In 2011, a man shot at and hit the White House. He cracked a window and it was four days before it was realized that the home was hit. It was only realized then after a housekeeper noticed the broken grass.
In April 2012 Secret Service took prostitutes from a strip club back to their hotel rooms.
In May 2013, a Secret Service supervisor sent sexual emails to a subordinate and left a bullet in a woman’s restroom. He tried to force his way into the room to retrieve it.
A year later, three Secret Service agents protecting Obama were caught partying and drinking, violating Secret Service rules.
In September of 2014, a security contractor with a gun and an assault record got on an elevator with the president. The contractor took video of Obama and refused to stop when requested by the agents.
Secret Service only learned the man had a gun after he is fired from his job. Obama was not told about the incident.
Three days later a man with a knife jumps the White House fence and makes it deep inside the building. The White House reported the man only made it through the front door.
In September of 2014, Then-Secret Service Director Julia Pierson appear before a House committee. She testifies about the security lapses and it’s a disaster. In October Pierson resigns from her post. Joseph Clancy begins to head the agency.
A few weeks into his job, John Clancy has a win. The Secret Service dogs stop a man who jumped the White House fence.
In October the investigator researching the 2012 prostitution scandal in Colombia is arrested for prostitution in Florida. He resigned.
In December, a panel of outside experts delivered a report the Secret Service was starved for “leadership that rewards innovation and excellence and demands accountability.”
In March, two senior agents, one being second-in-command of President Obama’s detail, ran into a White House security barrier after drinking at a party. The men drove into the middle of an active bomb investigation.
Western Journalism reported that the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General released a report Wednesday which says the agents were ‘More Likely Than Not’ impaired by alcohol.
Meeting with congress later in March, Clancy testified that he wanted to build a full scale model of the White House. He also plays tug-of-war with the congressmen over the video of the drunk driving incident and is not forthcoming.
In April of this year, a 4-year-old penetrated the perimeter of the White House. Security agents rushed to the north lawn with their weapons drawn as a toddler jumped over a small bike fence outside the White House gate.
That happened the same week that an off-duty Secret Service member was arrested and charged with first-degree attempted burglary
Also in April, Katie McGuire reported, “Yet Another White House Fence Jumper Arrested!”
Most recently, Secret Service and the White House experienced another security breach when another drone was successfully flown over the grounds.
The scandals have become never-ending fodder for comedians, including Michael Loftus and Rodney Conover on the new TV comedy, The Flipside with Michael Loftus. So I guess Obama will be watching his Tweets! Maybe he will learn something!
