Default Secret service dilemma?

Just as a general example - if the president came under threat of assassination by a group who were all *example* Masons, what would the secret service do with any of their agents/staff who happened to be masons too?

I'm guessing they'd just be assigned to different cases far from the president and probably watched closely.

Does anybody (unlikely enough) know any info or precedents at all?

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question - I'm just kinda fishing here

Thanks

i'm just guessing too
but i don't think they assume all members of the masons work together like the klan. even the klan has different groups: ie - some violent, some non-violent

but you should use the tea party. they're more cohesive (and dangerous) than the masons.

however, when you work for the federal gov't in a non-political position, you must sign away your rights to mix your personal political positions with your work duties and responsibilities.

If there's any perceived notion of an Agent's political/personal beliefs interfering with their duties, the dude/dudette is off the Presidential detail.

These guys don't **** around. Even getting to be a Secret Service Agent is tough.

I always liked what they did in Air Force One: No explanation, just the SSA started shooting the other Agents. The author(s) of the flick just left it up to the audience to say, "Ok, he's one of the bad guys." That he wasn't a major focus of the story obviously helped, but still...

By the way, for one of my screenplays, I had to do a little bit of research on the Secret Service. Quite a bit out there that's available online. And no one's bothered to check up on--hold on. Someone's at the d

I know a guy who's an agent, when you look at his job history it's surprising he made it based on how often he's been fired etc. Plus I know for a fact he said he wouldn't take a bullet for obama and he was on his detail during the campaign!

Do I detect sarcasm? If so, why on earth would I take the time to make that up?

Who said he's a friend. I said I know a GUY. And I didn't OUT anyone. I'm pointing out to the person with the question that people of all stripes and belief systems are in the secret service.

Relax, defender of all that's holy and true...

LOL *calls 911 for haroldhecuba*

Ok - maybe masons were a bad example.

Lets use Facebook instead - or something similar, and obscure (I've got IMVU in mind).

Say Facebook was a near unknown after just starting off, with just a few hundred thou users, and a group was using it to subtly recruit and orchestrate political assinations (assuming that it's feasible), finally targeting the big cheese. What then for the odd one or two SS agents who had facebook accounts?

How sensitive are these serious-suits?

*doorbell rings*

And thanks for the feedba
