The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee is refusing to meet with a Colombian prostitute involved in the U.S. Secret Service scandal.

Rep. Peter King tells CNN that a meeting with the woman, identified by her lawyer as Dania Londono Suarez, would merely be "a publicity stunt."

The New York Republican's panel is conducting its own investigation of the incident in which several Secret Service agents consorted with prostitutes in advance of President Barack Obama's arrival for a regional summit in Cartagena, Colombia early this month.

Asked in an interview Monday about reports the woman wants to meet with him, King replies, "There's been enough cheap publicity." He says, "I'm not going to give her another forum."

Nine Secret Service agents have lost their jobs in the scandal.
