Palin To Secret Service Agent: "Check This Out, Bodyguard -- You're Fired"

Sarah Palin joined FOX News tonight to discuss the Secret Service prostitution scandal as well as the GSA spending scandal. Palin also reacted to news that broke this afternoon about another Secret Service scandal, this time involving her.

In fact, the agent involved, David Randall Chaney, was ousted this week due to his alleged involement in the prostitution affair in Colombia.

Chaney was assigned to Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska, during the 2008 presidential cycle when she was the Republican party's vice presidential nominee.

According to The Washington Post, Chaney, 48, wrote on his Facebook page about his attraction to Palin. "I was really checking her out, if you know what i mean?" he wrote.

"Well, this agent who was kind of ridiculous there in posting pictures and comments about checking someone out," Palin told Greta van Susteren on her FOX News program. "Well check this out, bodyguard -- you're fired. And I hope his wife kicks his okol'e and sends him to the doghouse.. As long as he's not eating the dog, along with his former boss. Greta, you know, a lot of people will just, I guess say that this is boys being boys. And boys will be boys, but they shouldn't be in positions of authority."

"It's a symptom of government run amok, though, Greta," Palin said on the Thursday broadcast of "On the Record" on FOX News. "Who is minding the store here? And when it comes to this particular issue of Secret Service, again, playing with the taxpayer's dime and playing with prostitutes and checking out those whom they are guarding."

"You know, the President, for one, he better be wary there when Secret Service is accompanying his family on vacation. They may be checking out the First Lady, instead of guarding her. I say that not just tongue in cheek, but I say that seriously," Palin said.

"The president, the CEO of this operation called our federal government, has got to start cracking down on these agencies. He is the head of the administrative branch and all of these different departments in the administration that now people are seeing things that are so amiss within these departments. The buck stops with the president. And he's really got to start cracking down and seeing some heads roll. He has to get rid of these people at the head of these agencies where so many things, obviously, are amiss," she said.
