Default Secret Service Director resigns

Julia Pierson, the director of the Secret Service, resigned Wednesday after a series of embarrassing security lapses, including a breach of the White House by a knife-wielding intruder and the revelation that an armed man came within inches of President Barack Obama in an elevator.

Pierson stepped down one day after she was hauled before a House committee and upbraided by lawmakers, including one who suggested that she was better at protecting her own reputation than the executive mansion.

Even though I don't care for Obama more heads needs to roll on these major infractions of lack of security. Like isn't there a large detail of dog's and their handlers patrolling the WH grounds, why was the entrance alarm muted? and had to be sensors and cameras everywhere..why weren't these being monitored 24/7? as to the guy in the elevator..security should of immediately asked him for id, maybe a pat down and told to wait outside..no excuses for any of this stuff..just my opinion.

I agree, the lack of security is unacceptable.

Maybe the SS is still sore about the hookers and strippers being taken away

She obviously wasn't one of the protected. Her forced resignation happened way too fast. See, when BHO feels like he's in jeopardy, things happen.

Protection and security of our white house should be #1, if we can't protect it imagine what could happen if Secret service messes up on a road trip?? Not in today's world, security is #1 on my list and I'm nobody....

Affirmative action at its best. Put some geese on the front lawn.

The house of ANY commander in chief needs to be 100% at minimum, should be 110% in my eyes

Maybe the White House SS is just reflecting the seriousness of the job the current occupant does.

Perhaps she was actually doing the American people a favor but just had not finished the task?

Too bad she wasn't a little worse at the job.
