Escort at center of Secret Service scandal speaks out
CARTAGENA (WHDH) -- Nine more members of the US Secret Service are leaving the agency in the wake of the recent prostitution scandal, and Monday the woman at the center of it all spoke out in an exclusive ‘today show’ interview.
“They liked to show off their bodies -- great bodies, well-defined abs -- they liked attention, and we Colombian women are not used to that,” Dania Londono Suarez said through a translator. “I was surprised that every time he danced with me he lifted up his sweater so I could see.”
She calls the Secret Service agents "stupid brutes."
“They were full of themselves,” she said. “There was another crazy guy who jumped up on the bar.
When asked if the Secret Service agents were shy about asking for sex, the woman, who's been dubbed an "escort," said:
“Very direct -- I would say too direct.”
Suarez says when the three men approached and propositioned her and her friends she assumed they were tourists, and that they were drinking vodka like water.
She says she made it clear that a night with her would cost $800.
“These are very basic words: ‘sex:sexo; cash, money: dinero; I made a sign with my fingers so he couldn’t pretend that I was charging $80 or 80 cents.”
She says, after what she describes as normal sex, he fell asleep and the next morning:
“He told me ‘stay here, stay my love, stay my love,’ I told him no,” she said. “I told him give me my money, that I was going home.”
She says the man, allegedly a Secret Service agent, gave her $50, ordered her out, closed the door and that’s when police got involved.
She says other agents gathered about $250 and she left.
