Shameful Secret Service agent David Chaney was 'really checking' out Palin while guarding her
One of the senior Secret Service agents who lost his job in the wake of the Colombia prostitution scandal joked about protecting Sarah Palin in a post on his Facebook page.
David Randall Chaney, a 48-year-old supervisor, wrote that he was 'really checking out' the vice-presidential candidate when he guarded her during the 2008 election campaign.
But Ms Palin yesterday hit back at the disgraced agent who was forced to retired after being suspended along with ten others involved in an argument with escorts at a hotel.

The other supervisor who has been forced out of the service has been identified as Greg Stokes, who was in charge of the K-9 division of the agency.
Both Stokes and Chaney have worked at the agency for around two decades, and have been involved with protecting the President.
None of the other nine suspended agents - one of whom has resigned - have been named.
Chaney, who is based in Washington, DC and lives in Ashburn, Virginia, has written about working with Ms Palin on Facebook, according to the Washington Post.

He posted numerous pictures with her in the foreground and him standing in the background wearing a suit and dark glasses.
After a friend suggested that Chaney had 'real chemistry' with the Alaska governor, he replied: 'I was really checking her out, if you know what I mean?'
Ms Palin reacted with anger when she heard about the married agent's comments.
'This agent was kind of ridiculous in posting pictures and comments about checking someone out,' she said on Fox News. 'Well check this out, bodyguard - you're fired! And I hope his wife... sends him to the dog house.'
'A lot of people will say this is boys being boys, and boys will be boys, but they shouldn't be in positions of authority. I think it's pretty embarrassing,' the 48-year-old added. 'I've had enough of these men being dogs and not being responsible.'
Palin said it was 'a symptom of government run amok'. 'It's like, who's minding the store around here?' she told Fox News.
'The president, for one, he better be wary, there, of when Secret Service is accompanying his family on vacation. They may be checking out the first lady instead of guarding her.'

Summit: The scandal occurred while the Secret Service was preparing for President Barack Obama's trip to a conference of world leaders
Chaney, whose father was also a Secret Service agent, joined the agency in 1987 and was supervisor of the department which supports the force's work internationally.
It is not known what role he played in the incident which saw the police called to a Colombian hotel to resolve an argument between a prostitute and an agent who she claimed owed her money.
The scandal, which occurred while the Secret Service was preparing for President Obama's trip to a conference of world leaders, has proved embarrassing to the agency.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said he would 'clean house' by removing agents more concerned with 'their personal play time' than protecting the President.
