It's truly a wonder President Obama and his family have stayed safe, given the low quality Secret Service agents he seems to get on his detail. If I were a paranoid type, I'd wonder about the leadership in that agency and their true motives.

Here we have yet another story of a Secret Service officer sexting while on duty at the White House. What the hell?

A Secret Service officer assigned to the White House was arrested and charged with soliciting a minor and sending obscene material to what authorities say he thought was a 14-year-old girl.

The uniformed officer, Lee Robert Moore, was actually communicating online with an undercover agent, authorities said today.

Federal and state charges revealed today show that he is accused of sending explicit messages and of trying to arrange a meeting for a sexual encounter with a minor. He also allegedly asked for compromising pictures and video of the child.

Some of the sordid communication, which occurred over a period of weeks, allegedly took place while Moore was on duty, working at the White House.
