Accuracy in Media

WASHINGTON — A former head of the Secret Service, then-director Mark Sullivan, ordered agents away from patrolling the White House perimeter in 2011 to check on a personal friend and assistant.

Reuters reported that the agents drove to the residence of Lisa Chopey in La Plata, Maryland, about an hour-long drive from the capital city.

Chopey was possibly being harassed by a neighbor and prompted Sullivan’s decision to send agents to her residence. They were monitoring the neighbor for a period of at least two months. However, an agency spokesman, Ed Donovan, said that the agents were sent to the residence on one occasion for┬áthe July Fourth weekend in 2011.
