Secret Service Closes Ranks In Sordid Scandal

WASHINGTON (AP) -- After two weeks of disturbing revelations about a tawdry prostitution scandal, the Secret Service and its supporters are circling the wagons to restore the "secret" part of its mission.
Retired agents are being instructed to stop talking to reporters. Secret Service agents are dismantling Facebook accounts, hanging up on reporters and notifying headquarters -- even calling police -- when journalists knock on their doors at home for interviews about the investigation.
Pete Cavicchia, president of the Association of Former Agents of the U.S. Secret Service and head of a New York-based security and investigations firm, sent an email to members urging them to "exercise proper caution" when dealing with press questions.
Current agents have abruptly hung up when contacted by The Associated Press or declined to return messages.
