Secret Service Official on Leave During Probe of Alleged Sexual Assault

By    |   Wednesday, 08 Apr 2015 10:09 PM

A senior Secret Service supervisor has been put on leave while police investigate allegations that he made unwanted sexual advances against a female agent, The Washington Post reports.

District of Columbia police and a government inspector general are looking into the allegations against Xavier Morales, the Post reported.

According to the allegation, Morales and the female agent were at an off-site party on March 31 celebrating Morales' assignment to lead the Louisville, Kentucky, field office, where he had been scheduled to report this week.

At that event, Morales reportedly told the woman he was in love with her and wanted to have sex. After they returned to the office, the woman said Morales attempted to kiss her. When she resisted, he grabbed her arms. Morales eventually relented, people who have seen the complaint told the Times.

Morales did not comment to the Times.

"The Secret Service is an agency that demands that our employees conduct themselves with the highest level of integrity. These allegations as reported are very disturbing," Director Joseph P. Clancy said in a statement to the Post. "Any threats or violence that endangers our employees in the workplace is unacceptable and will not be tolerated."

The allegations follow a March 4 incident in which two agents arrived at the White House after a retirement party and drove a car into an active bomb investigation. The two were alleged to have been drinking.

Those incidents follow more problems in the agency in which a fence-jumper made his way into the White House with a knife, and a drone landed on the White House lawn that had been flown by an inebriated government employee.
