DEA Chief: I Can’t Fire Agents who Hired Prostitutes from Drug Cartels


Count Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) as someone who just can’t understand how it’s possible that the government cannot fire DEA Agents who knowingly break the law by hiring prostitutes from the very drug cartels they are supposed to be shutting down.

“Based on the testimony we have read from the DEA administrator, she says she doesn’t have the power to simply fire these people. I don’t buy it. The American public doesn’t buy it. When we have bad apples who repeatedly do the same type of behavior, compromise our national security, then they need to lose their national security clearances, and they need to be fired.”

In fact, Chaffetz noted that some of them were “punished” with unpaid leave and that their punishment only lasted a few days! “The punishment for engaging in this type of behavior was two to 10 days off, non-paid leave. That sounds like a vacation to me, it doesn’t sound like punishment.”
