The CNN is reporting that three United States (US) Secret Service members will leave the agency because of an alleged prostitution scandal in Colombia.

CNN says one of agents is a supervisory employee who is being allowed to retire, while the second employee has resigned.

A third agent, another supervisory employee, is being pushed out, with the agency proposing he be removed. A US official said the agent plans to fight to remain in the service.

Another eight members allegedly involved in the scandal are on administrative leave with their security clearances suspended.
