WASHINGTON (AP) — What were they thinking?For months new Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy had been warning agents and officers that misconduct and drunken shenanigans would not be tolerated in the once-vaunted law enforcement agency. And yet, according to investigators, two senior Secret Service agents spent five hours at a bar, ran up a significant tab, and then drove back to the White House, where they shoved their car into a construction barrier and drove within inches of a suspicious package earlier this year. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Top holiday drink recipes Inspector General John Roth’s 18-page report on the incident said that Ogilvie, Connolly and their two companions all denied drinking all the drinks Ogilvie paid for before driving his government sport utility vehicle into a secured area at the White House, pushing a large construction barrier with the vehicle’s bumper and passing within inches of a suspicious item that had been left in the area.Roth told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Thursday that the agents’ behavior was “troubling.” When asked if the pair should be punished, Roth said while discipline will fall to the Secret Service, he “believes there should be some consequences.”Roth testified that Ogilvie and Connolly both violated agency policies barring driving a government vehicle after drinking and requirements that they self-report any incident that could gain public attention.When pressed by lawmakers about what may have led the agents to ignore or violate agency policies, Roth said there is a lack of accountability within the Secret Service.Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and the ranking Democrat, Elijah Cummings of Maryland, said in a statement that Roth’s report was more evidence that the Secret Service is in need a “major cultural overhaul.” Pierson’s handling of those incidents ultimately led to her ouster. An independent panel concluded that the agency was “insular” and in need of new leadership. The panel recommended hiring a new director from outside the agency, but Obama instead chose Clancy, a retired agent who once ran the president’s protective detail.___Follow Alicia A.

Secret Service officers on duty and investigating the suspicious item when Ogilvie and Connolly drove through later told investigators they thought something was “not right” and the men were “not making sense” as they spoke to officers on the scene. None of the on-duty officers gave the agents a field sobriety test. Both were instead allowed to leave the White House complex driving government-owned vehicles, despite a watch commander’s concern that Connolly was not fit to drive.In advance of the report’s release late Wednesday, Connolly, the deputy special agent in charge of the Presidential Protection Division, notified the agency that he would retire. Ogilvie has been placed on administrative leave.The incident once again focused a congressional spotlight on an agency that didn’t need more attention for scandals. The scandal-plagued agency has been in the spotlight since 2012 when more than a dozen agents and officers were caught up in a prostitution scandal in advance of a presidential trip to Colombia. Since then, there have been a handful of other incidents, the most serious being a security breach at the White House in September.In that incident, a Texas man armed with a knife was able to climb over a perimeter fence and run deep into the White House before being apprehended. It was later revealed that a few days before that incident, President Barack Obama rode an elevator in Atlanta with an armed contractor. The Secret Service didn’t know the man was armed until after Obama got off the elevator.

Ogilvie, the assistant special agent in charge of the agency’s Washington field office, opened a tab and paid $149.87 for eight Johnny Walker Red scotches, two vodka drinks, three beers and a glass of wine.The incident became public days later and forced Clancy to follow in the steps of Pierson and head to Capitol Hill to once again explain a Secret Service scandal to lawmakers.In a statement Wednesday, the agency’s third director in less than three years said he was “disappointed and disturbed at the apparent lack of judgment described in this report. Behavior of the type described in the report is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.” Comments Share
June 27, 2019 244 Views Affordability homeowners Millennials Rent 2019-06-27 Seth Welborn Homeowners and renters alike are facing affordability issues, according to a new survey from Freddie Mac. According to the GSE’s “Profile of Today’s Renter and Owner” study, over half of Americans are making spending or housing changes to afford their monthly housing payment. Additionally, 44% of renters and 35% of owners who had trouble affording their housing payment over the last two years reported having to move to afford housing costs.Still, the majority of both renters and homeowners believe their current situation is the most affordable option for them, but the idea that renting is more affordable than ownership is on the rise. Freddie Mac’s survey of around 4,000 households found that 82% of renters view renting as more affordable than homeownership, up 15 points from February 2018.However, renters are the most likely to be const-burdened. According to the survey, 34% of renters spend more than one-third of their income on rent, while only 25% of homeowners spend that much on their mortgage. The biggest obstacle preventing many renters from becoming homeowners, specifically low-income renters, is the down payment and closing costs. Around 88% of low income renters said the down payment and closing costs would be their biggest hurdle, compared to 72% of middle income renters. Many Americans have had to cut costs to afford housing, including 62% of renters and 47% of homeowners. Over half of renters, 55%, reduced spending on non-essential items such as entertainment, compared to 52% of owners. For younger homeowners and renters, student loans have had an impact on affordability, especially among renters. Freddie Mac found that 51% of younger millennials (aged 23-29) who rent had to make a different housing choice because of student loans, compared with 38% of younger millennials who own a home. Among older millennials (aged 30-38), the survey found 41% who rent and 36% who own experienced the same phenomenon.Additionally, over half of workers employed in the essential workforce, serving in crucial positions like healthcare, education and law enforcement, have made housing decisions with their student loan repayment obligations in mind. This includes 51% of owners and 53% of renters working essential jobs. in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News, Origination Homeowners, Renters Alike Face Affordability Issues Share

The Arizona Cardinals have one of the most potent offenses in the NFL.Through eight games they are first in the league in total points, with 263, and second in the NFL in average points scored per game, at 32.9. They are also third in the NFL in total yards.Be it by land or by air, their offense has been very difficult for opponents to stop this season, with QB Carson Palmer, RB Chris Johnson and WR Larry Fitzgerald leading the way. Comments Share The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories But halfway through each of Palmer, Johnson and Fitzgerald has been better than anyone would have expected, and they’re the main reason the Cardinals are 6-2 and leading the NFC West. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires That trio, by the way, was named the third-best triplets in the NFL by NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek.3) Arizona Cardinals: Carson Palmer,Chris Johnson & Larry FitzgeraldPreseason rank: No. 24This mature trio might look like the casting call for a Cialis ad, but the vets are functioning at the highest level on NFL gridirons so far this season. (Did anybody see the Chris Johnson resurgence coming?)The Cardinals’ trio trails only New England’s Tom Brady/Dion Lewis/Rob Gronkowski and Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers/Eddie Lacy/Randall Cobb, and is no doubt deserving of its high standing and improved ranking.Palmer is tied for the league lead with 20 touchdown passes, is first in yards-per-attempt, fourth in total passing yards and fourth in passer rating.Johnson is second in the league with 676 rushing yards, with his 4.8 yards-per-carry average being the highest he’s carried since 2009.Fitzgerald is fifth in the NFL with 55 receptions, which he has taken for 706 yards and seven touchdowns, which puts him on pace to set some career-high marks in this, his 12th season.Whether or not this trio, with each member being over 30 years of age, will continue to play at such a high level the rest of the season remains to be seen. Also, it’s possible that someone like John Brown — who is second on the team in receptions and himself having a very good season — could overtake Fitzgerald as the receiver in the group.
