Pictures of the woman posing in a bikini, obtained by the NY Daily News, were splashed on news websites in the US as the Secret Service removed three agents involved in the scandal.
The stunning snapshots of the Dania Suarez show her posing up to the camera. In one picture the brunette beauty is in a bikini at the beach striking a model pose.
In another photo Suarez kicks back her leg and leans over a couch in her best come-hither stance, according to the NY Daily News.
Dania Suarez seems to be the same woman who told her story to the newspapers earlier. She is a 24-year-old single mother of 9-year-old child.
The scandal arose ahead of the Summit of the Americas when at least some of 11 Secret Service employees brought prostitutes to their Cartagena hotel, tells CBC.
The agency responded quickly to the embarrassing episode, forcing out three employees, including two supervisors.
Two of the fired agents were named by media as David Chaney and Greg Stokes, according to Herald Sun. Mr Chaney was allowed to retire while Mr Stokes, who is said to be head of the Canine Training Section, was fired. The third agent resigned.
The disagreement over the price the agent had to pay to the prostitute, allegedly Suarez — he offered $30 for services she thought they had agreed were worth more than 25 times that — set off a tense early morning quarrel in the hallway of the luxury hotel, reports The New York Times.
“I tell him, ‘Baby, my cash money,’ ” Dania Suarez said in her first public comments on a dispute that would soon spiral into a full-blown scandal.
She also denied she was a prostitute, preferring the term escort. “It’s the same, but it’s different,” she told the Times. “It’s like when you buy a fine rum or a BlackBerry or an iPhone. They have a different price.”
According to The Huff Post, the investigation revealed that at least 20 women stayed with as many as 11 agents and 10 military personnel shortly before Barack Obama’s arrival in Cartagena for an international summit, though it’s unclear how many women were escorts.
Jay Carney, President Barack Obama’s chief spokesman, noted that some Secret Service employees involved have already lost their jobs. He also noted that the president’s security in Cartagena was never compromised, and he asked for patience as official investigations continue.
“Perhaps it would be in the interests of a complete and thorough and fair investigation not to make determinations about the conclusions of an investigation before they’ve even been reached,” Carney said. “That’s the president’s position.”
Paul Morrissey, assistant director of the Secret Service, said on Wednesday that one agency supervisor was allowed to retire, another was “proposed for removal for cause”, and a non-supervisory employee had resigned amid the widening repercussions of a case that has discomfited the White House.
The inquiry is in its early stages, Morrissey said, and that it involved “all investigative techniques available to our agency,” including polygraphs, interviews with the agents and supervisors involved, and witness interviews conducted in Cartagena.
“These are the first steps,” said Pete King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, which oversees the Secret Service.
King said the agency’s director, Mark Sullivan, took action against “the three people he believes the case was clearest against”. But King warned: “It’s certainly not over.”
Sen. Chuck Grassley, the senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he thought more people would be fired within “just a few days.”
“I expect there will be more, but that’s what the investigation is all about,” said Chuck Grassley.
