Background Checks Still Let Undesirables Slip Through: Secret Service Edition

A shot at the Secret Service and the White House, it should now be apparent to our government that background checks are simply unreliable. Take two of their Secret Service agents that recently crashed a car into a White House barricade after a night of drinking. To top it off, they drove over a ‘suspicious package’ that was in the middle of being investigated. Classy.

I’m old enough to know that drinking and driving isn’t good. What’s their excuse?

I can’t imagine what the procedure is to become a Secret Service agent, but I’d imagine that it involves more than a simple background check.  Yet still, bad things happen.

Just, you know… thought I’d mention this.
