House Oversight and Government Reform Committee statement on report on Secret Service incident investigation: 'Having reviewed the IG's report, we continue to believe that a major cultural overhaul is essential to restoring the Secret Service to its former stature. It is sadly revealing that the watch commander felt it would be a 'career killer' for him to administer a field sobriety test to a higher ranking agent, especially given concerns within the agency about potential retaliation for reporting misconduct. These are signs of a dysfunctional environment that must change. The Secret Service must swiftly ensure that the agents involved in the March 4 incident are held accountable for their actions. During this afternoon's hearing, we will examine the IG's report in greater detail and discuss other reform measures the Secret Service must undertake'
