Placeholder Image
Secret Service director Julia Pierson resigned last Wednesday following bipartisan calls for her resignation. Her abrupt departure came on the heels of her Capitol Hill testimony on egregious security failures that put the safety of the president and his family in jeopardy.The Secret Service has suffered serious security breaches and scandals under President Obama, dating back to 2009, when an uninvited Virginia couple managed to crash Obama’s first State Dinner. In November 2011, a man with a semiautomatic rifle parked in front of the White House and fired several shots at the building.
