Colombian Hooker Says U.S. Secret Serviceman Stiffed Her

| by

A 24-year-old prostitute from Colombia at the center of the recent Secret Service scandal revealed some telling details about her “engagement” with United States agents.

The call girl, whose name was not made available to the press, told the New York Times that she typically charges $800 to her full service clients. One of the Secret Service agents who availed himself of her services allegedly refused to pay the quote, offering only $30 as consolation.

“I tell him, ‘Baby, my cash money,'” the working girl told the New York Times. “They never told me they were with Obama. They were very discreet.”

In the woman’s account, she was one of many prostitutes that partied the night away with a group of American men at a popular club in Cartagena, Colombia.  Over the course of the night, the Americans, who turned out to be Secret Service agents, bought two bottles of Absolute Vodka for the group.

The prostitute says she assumed she was partying with wealthy American businessmen. The $800 price tag speaks to her status as a high end escort.

“I have a higher rank,” she told the Times. “An escort is someone who a man can take out to dinner. She can dress nicely, wear nice makeup, speak and act like a lady. That’s me.”

In the morning, a call from hotel at which the Secret Servicemen were quartered asked that all prostitutes vacate the premises by 7 a.m. She haggled over the price with one of the agents and eventually had to accept a combination of currencies that added up to around 225 USD.

Prostitution is legal in Colombia, though certainly not condoned for Secret Service agents on duty. Eleven agents and nine military servicemen are currently under investigation in connection with this scandal. According to preliminary reports, most of the men being investigated are married.
