WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the Senate homeland security committee says whistleblowers are calling in tips about the Secret Service in the wake of the Colombia prostitution scandal. Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman was mum on the details Tuesday, but he said any revelations would be part of public hearings into misconduct in the agency going back a decade.

Lieberman, an independent who often votes with Democrats, said he also wants to know what rules govern off-duty agents who are on assignment.

That was the status of a dozen Secret Service agents and officers who cavorted with prostitutes in Cartagena ahead of President Barack Obama's visit there this month. Six have been ousted. Another dozen military enlistees also have been implicated.

Lieberman praised Director Mark Sullivan for investigating the scandal aggressively.
