Members of the President's Secret Service team are accused of hiring prostitutes in Colombia.

President Obama is back in Washington today after a two-day summit in Colombia, a gathering of Western leaders that focused mainly on trade policies. But the summit was nearly overshadowed by allegations of misconduct by the president's Secret Service team.

Several agents have been accused of hiring prostitutes and bringing them back to their hotel rooms. 11 agents were suspended due to their involvement and the incident is under investigation.

Reporter Joe Davidson broke the story for the Washington Post and he joins Madeleine to discuss what he discovered.
