Scandal touches Eglin

The prostitution scandal in Colombia is now touching Northwest Florida. There are reports that the U.S. Southern Command is investigating the role of five soldiers from the 7th Special Forces Group, based at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. Eleven members of the Secret Service that protects the president and other top officials have been linked by the agency to the scandal. They are accused of bringing prostitutes to a hotel in Colombia ahead of last week's Summit of the Americas attended by President Obama.
