10 Secrets The Secret Service Doesn’t Want You To Know

10. Secret Service Missed Man With A Gun Riding An Elevator With Obama

During a visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, a man carrying a gun was able to ride in an elevator with the President. The secret service was not aware of this happening and it caused an uproar in questioning the president’s security measures. There was no immediate threat during the time and the overall experience was minimal in terms of harm. The man turned out to be a security officer for the CDC and began to behave unprofessionally while riding the elevator. He took out his phone and began snapping photos. The man was later interviewed and had his gun removed. It was later discovered he had a criminal record. It is the secret service’s job to know who will have access to the President whenever he travels anywhere. Personnel also needs clearance for a gun if they are within contact with the President. Contract security officers are not allowed to be armed. The man lost his job and is still baffled as to why.
