The alarming extent of security lapses surrounding American President Barack Obama has some lawmakers demanding answers.
CNN reported on Monday that a deranged man who jumped the fence at the White House made it much further inside the building than was originally disclosed.
Then yesterday, it was revealed that an armed private security contractor got on an elevator with President Obama when he visited the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta on Sept. 16. It was yet another violation of Secret Service protocol.
Julia Pierson, the director of the Secret Service, traveled to Capital Hill yesterday to try and explain at least 1,000 breaches in security at the White House. The best she could offer was, "I take full responsibility; what happened is unacceptable and it will never happen again."
According to CNN.com, Pierson testified yesterday that she never bothered to mention the elevator incident to the president.
"I believe the President's security was unnecessarily compromised," Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told CNN. "A convict with a gun in an elevator with the President put his life in danger. The Director should have informed the President, yet she testified she did not. Did she lie to Congress or fail to inform the President?"
Some Obama supporters are suggesting the Nation of Islam's elite security division, Fruit of Islam (FOI), take over the protection of the president of the United States.
