And much has been said about how this happened on Obama's watch. It's positively Clintonian, if you ask some in the Republican party. What's with these horny Democratic administrations? This appears to have inspired at least some congressional leaders to try to prove that, no, this isn't just an Obama problem.
Well, here's the proof, people:
It seems that Secret Service agents way back in President Nixon's time enjoyed the company of strangers -- right here in Southern California's own backyard.
On page 209 of the reader's own copy, the book notes that one reporter knew when Nixon was coming home to the so-called Western White House (a.k.a. La Casa Pacifica), his seaside retreat in San Clemente.
How? According to the book, the journalist ...
... cultivated a clerk at a San Clemente motel who called him whenever the whores came from Vegas in anticipation of the arrival of the Secret Service.
That would make this an American tradition.
