WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says the 11
Secret Service employees under investigation for cavorting with
prostitutes were "stupid," and there's not much Congress can do to stop others from making the same choices.

The Nevada Democrat told reporters Thursday there will be committee hearings, but the proceedings won't "stop people from being stupid." He added: "There is not a bill we can pass to cause people to have common sense."

The service has ousted three of 11 men alleged to have spent time with prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, in advance of President Barack Obama's visit there. The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to grill Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano about the matter next week.
