Secret Service Misconduct, Systemic Problems, Leadership Issue

Most people would say Senator Tom Coburn is a responsible, sober-minded judge of these kinds of situations, and he hardly has good things to say about the Secret Service:

Secret Service incident in Netherlands was on heels of car wreck during Obama’s Miami trip - The Washington Post: "... At home, the news sparked fresh outrage from members of Congress. Some cited the incident as evidence contrary to the findings of a December report from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General, which asserted that the Secret Service does not have an agency-wide cultural problem that encourages and tolerates personal misconduct. “It shows that the report was a cover-up and a whitewash,” said Sen. Tom Coburn (Okla.), the ranking Republican on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. “There are significant cultural problems there that need to be addressed, systemic problems.”..."

Too bad the Chief Executive is unwilling to exercise leadership or take action, or maybe he just doesn't understand how to be a leader.
