Reid's Secret Service solution: "Hire more females"

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's remedy for the Secret Service's controversy regarding prostitutes: "Hire more females."

The Nevada Democrat was asked at a Thursday news conference about a report by KIRO-TV in Seattle that agents may have solicited prostitutes last year in El Salvador.

At another press conference, though, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, noted that Wednesday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the incident in Colombia involving agents and prostitutes was an isoldated incident, to her knowledge.

Cornyn said he was concerned, saying an investigation was needed by Congress. "It's an obligation we owe to the American people," he said.

I can always count on Cornyn to blow everything out of proportion.
