Blackmail, the Secret Service and Hookers

When Agent Barney Stinson received an email including a video file of him with three Colombian prostitutes, he forwarded it to everyone on his contact list.

One of the many arguments about why it was so wrong for secret service agents to use Colombian prostitutes, was that it left the agents vulnerable to blackmail, which is especially problematic considering the sensitive nature of their job. So I have to wonder if someone’s going to try to claim that he can’t be blackmailed, because his personal life is such a mess. Perhaps everyone thinks so little of him, that evidence that some woman was willing to have sex with him, even for money, is only going to improve his reputation. Or they’re all overly familiar with his sordid and disgusting sex life, so that nothing said by South American hookers will surprise anyone.

That argument would make for a memorable last day for an agent.
