The still emerging story of the Secret Service prostitute scandal in Colombia is proving that it has strong news legs and may be around to dog President Barack Obama for a while, reports Politico.

Several of Sunday’s television news talk shows are scheduled to take a hard look at reports that Secret Service agents and military personnel were dallying with prostitutes ahead of President Barack Obama’s trip to Colombia for the Summit of the Americas.

“Fox News Sunday” and CBS’s “Face the Nation” have invited Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, to address the Secret Service affair, Politico reports.

CBS will feature a roundtable discussion on the Secret Service scandal with former Secret Service Director W. Ralph Basham; Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas; Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md.; and Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.

Reps. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, and Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, are on NBC’s “Meet the Press” to discuss the scandal. This program may prove a double-whammy for the president as the featured pairing is also slated to address the apparently lavish spending by officials of General Services Administration, according to Politico.

Pundits are all in agreement that Obama wants these two matters to quickly disappear from the media spotlight, allowing his attention to focus on conjuring up only positive images for the benefit of the electorate of campaign 2012.
