The Secret Service started closing ranks this week, after two weeks of disturbing revelations tied to a prostitution scandal. The Associated Press reports former agents have been instructed to stop talking to reporters while others are closing their Facebook accounts. A dozen agents who travelled to Columbia, ahead of a visit by President Obama, were implicated in the scandal. Eight have been forced from their jobs. That scandal and the General Services Administration conference in Las Vegas have distracted Congress from other issues -- namely agency budgets. Federal News Radio Host Francis Rose discussed the issue on Capital Insider.
