US Secret Service director resigns after series of scandals

Secret Service Director Julia Pierson resigned from her post atop the security detail in charge of protecting United States President Barack Obama on Wednesday following several recent serious breaches.

Pierson, who was appointed only last year to head the US Secret Service after the agency’s reputation was marred by events that preceded her tenure as director, testified on Capitol Hill earlier this week on Tuesday amidst recent revelations that have called into question the effectiveness of her office.
