Vice Pres­i­dent men axed for romps on duty

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

U. S. Vice Pres­i­dent Mike Pence has sacked three mem­bers of his se­cu­rity de­tail af­ter they were caught hav­ing sex on duty.

The Army sol­diers were part of a group as­signed to the se­cu­rity team and were car­ry­ing out a check in ad­vance of Pence’s visit to Panama.

De­fence of­fi­cials said Pence’s of­fice made its de­ci­sion af­ter re­view­ing se­cu­rity cam­era video from their ho­tel show­ing the sol­diers bring­ing women into a “se­cure area” – thought to be their ho­tel rooms.

A White House of­fi­cial said the sex took place be­fore Pence ( above) left the United States for his tour of Latin Amer­ica.

A source said: “Se­cu­rity staff are ex­pected to dis­play the very high­est level of pro­fes­sion­al­ism. There can be no ex­cuse for bring­ing unau­tho­rised per­sons into se­cure ar­eas. It’s the se­cu­rity of the god­damned Vice Pres­i­dent were talk­ing about here.”
