Congratulations, Secret Service. You just keep finding new ways to make yourselves look like incompetents and jerks.

As House Oversight Committee chair, GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz was critical of the Secret Service’s ineptitude. And so, he had to be punished. This past April, he was:

In 2003, Chaffetz had applied for the Secret Service and been rejected. As a private personnel matter, that information never should have been made public. But it was. So much for the “secret” part, huh?

As the Washington Post’s Carol Leonnig and Jerry Markon report, a DHS investigation has found that the information was leaked at the behest of the Secret Service’s assistant director.

Really professional operation you’ve got there, Secret Service.

The Secret Service’s assistant director urged that unflattering information the agency had in its files about a congressman critical of the service should be made public, according to a government watchdog report released Wednesday.

“Some information that he might find embarrassing needs to get out,” Assistant Director Edward Lowery wrote in an e-mail to a fellow director on March 31, commenting on an internal file that was being widely circulated inside the service. “Just to be fair.”

That information was part of Chaffetz’s personnel file stored in a restricted Secret Service database and required by law to be kept private.

Needless to say, Rep. Chaffetz is angry:

Intimidating — and criminal.
