Obama DEA Chief to Resign Over Agency Sex Scandals

The head of Obama’s Drug Enforcement Agency is set to resign now over the numerous sex-fueled parties held by DEA agents that were paid for by the criminal Mexican drug cartels that have become epidemic in the agency and her inability to stop them.

Obama DEA chief Michele Leonhart is now set to resign over her multiple and ongoing failures.

Obama administration officials long ago soured on Leonhart, a career DEA agent who broke ground at the agency when she rose into leadership as the first woman to head a field office. In recent years, she has angered the administration for appearing to resist federal rules relaxing enforcement on marijuana as states have moved to legalize the drug for medicinal and recreational use.

More recently, she came under fire for her poor performance in a congressional hearing on an inspector general report that found instances of DEA agents having sex parties in Colombia with prostitutes paid for by drug cartels. The report cited light punishments for the agents and Leonhart seemed at a loss about what she could do about it.

On Monday — 4/20 — word spread around Washington that Leonhart had met with Justice Department officials to discuss her departure and how to handle succession at the top of the agency. Officials had hoped to have her departure announced before Loretta Lynch, the attorney general nominee awaiting Senate confirmation, took office.

Fittingly, insiders learned of her resignation on April 20, the day famed as 4/20 in marijuana circles.

But mark this as nearing half a dozen of Obama’s top law enforcement chiefs who have had to resign over internal scandals–only the latest of whom was Secret Service head Julia Pierson who resigned over scandals and her massive failure to lead.
