Just a Republican, so no problem.
The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) has found that alarms at the Houston home of former President George H.W. Bush were broken for more than a year — the latest embarrassment for the embattled Secret Service.
No security breach occurred during the 13-month period when the alarm was broken, but the OIG review found problems with identifying, reporting and tracking alarm system malfunctions and repairing and replacing alarm systems.
In 2010, a Secret Service security expert requested a replacement for an alarm system that had been installed around 1993, but the request was denied in August 2011. In July 2012, the Secret Service made “limited upgrades using repurposed and new equipment,” according to the report from Inspector General John Roth.
After an alarm system failure in September 2013, the Secret Service’s protective division placed one of the protective employees assigned to the resident in a “roving post” while others could monitor the property via cameras, the report said.
