    End of story.

    So I'm not sure if we'd ever know someone was fired over it.
    Really? How is one to investigate (come to know more about) that which cannot even be commented on?

    Well... it's just generally the Secret Service does not disclose specifics on how their procedures work.

    Preliminary investigations certain procedures were not followed, but I doubt you'd get specifics on who or why.

    Probably would be in a closed door session.

    Google is your friend.

    Try it and you will learn that she had about 29 years Secret Service experience when she got the top job.

    She majored in Criminal Justice in college, and her first job out of college was beat cop.

    Thanks, the Wiki I found did not say any thing about her history.

    Best excuse ever. CNN round table discussion this afternoon determined that the lapse in security by the Secret Service is...that's right...Bush's fault. It all started when they allowed Bush to land a jet on an aircraft carrier. Been leading up to this ever since.

    She resigned. With all the rabid frothy outrage in the house and senate yesterday, can't say I'm shocked.

    Pierson is not a political appointee. She has been in the Secret Service for over 30 years.

    Not that political appointees are necessarily bad, and the Secret Service appears so broken
    that it might now be time to appoint an outsider to fix it, political or otherwise.

    There was also a considerable amount of outrage outside the House and Senate. How could anyone have missed it?
