With the names of several of the agents involved in the Colombian prostitution scandal having gone public, we learn that one David Chaney had his eyes on the prize, as it were, while working the Sarah Palin detail during the 2008 campaign:

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Secret Service supervisor who has been forced out of the agency amid a prostitution scandal joked on his Facebook page that he was “really checking her out” as he protected former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin while working on her security detail during the 2008 campaign.

Chaney made the comment on a photo of Palin he posted to his Facebook in January of 2009. More via the AP. Originally reported by WaPo.
