DEA Agents Held Sex Parties With Women Hired by Cartels



Drug Enforcement Administration agents held sex parties with prostitutes hired by drug cartels, the very people their agency is supposed to be investigating, according to a report released Thursday by the Department of Justice Inspector General.
The allegations were uncovered as part of a review of sexual misconduct cases in Justice Department agencies from October 2008 to September 2012, according to the report.
Investigators discovered not only the parties, but also attempts to keep evidence from becoming public.
Some agents were suspended, but it was not immediately clear if any were fired.
In response, a White House official said President Obama "has zero tolerance for any sexual misconduct — especially from those who have the responsibility of enforcing the law" and expected the Justice Department to "address this serious issue in a swift and thorough manner."

Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said in a statement that he found the allegations "truly stunning" and that they represented "a national security threat."
