NEW YORK, May 7 (UPI) -- In a television interview Monday, the woman at the center of the U.S. Secret Service scandal called the agents "stupid brutes" and accused them of negligence.

Self-described Colombian prostitute Dania Londono Suarez, 24, in a pre-recorded interview on the "Today" show that NBC described as her first American television interview, referred to the U.S. Secret Service as "completely stupid, idiotic people. I don't know how Obama had them in his security force."

She also pointed out, "They are to blame, for leaving their duty behind."

The scandal began in April when agents allegedly brought prostitutes to their hotel rooms in Cartagena, Colombia, where the U.S. Secret Service was preparing for the president's arrival for the Summit of the Americas.

Suarez told NBC News that one of the men refused to pay, so she went to police.

Eight agents, thus far, have lost their jobs as a result of the incident.
