WASHINGTON – Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, ID-Conn., released the following statement Tuesday on developments in the Secret Service scandal.  The Secret Service is part of the Department of Homeland Security, which the Committee oversees:

“I spoke with Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan today.  He appreciates the seriousness of this case, which is reflected in his quick and firm reaction to the matter.  The issue needs to be thoroughly investigated and, if the allegations are true, people should be punished. My staff and I will continue to receive daily updates and gather facts before determining whether it is constructive for the Homeland Security Committee to conduct a public hearing on this matter.”
