President Obama Appoints Woman As Head of Secret Service
(KUTV) President Obama has appointed a woman to head up the Secret Service – the first time a female has ever held that position.
Julia Pierson joined the secret service in 1983. Pierson inherits an agency still reeling from a sex scandal involving agents assigned to protect the President during a visit to Colombia last April.
Pierson does not need Senate confirmation, so she can take over immediately.
