DALLAS (CBSDFW) – David Chaney spent his career protecting some of the world’s most influential politicians. On Chaney’s public Facebook page, readers can find pictures of him standing watch over former Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin.

The 48-year-old is now trying to protect himself from a scandal involving prostitutes. Chaney and 10 other Secret Service Agents are accused of hiring prostitutes last week in Colombia, just prior to President Barack Obama’s arrival to Cartagena.

Chaney, who spent much of his youth in Dallas, was a supervisor with the Secret Service. He was allowed to retire in the wake of the scandal. Another agent was removed from his position, while a third resigned. Eight other secret service agents remain under investigation.

On his Facebook page, Chaney comments about “checking out” Palin as he stands behind her near a waiting Secret Service vehicle. “I was really checking her out, if you know what i mean?” wrote Chaney next to the photo.

His father, George Chaney, was a career secret Service Agent serving under President Dwight Eisenhower and President Lyndon Johnson. George Chaney passed away last year at the age of 86.

Chaney’s mother, Margaret “Toddie” Whitaker Chaney, still resides in Dallas and so does his sister, Devon Nassif.

CBS 11 News spoke briefly with Nassif outside her north Dallas home, but she declined to comment about her brother.

About vincepalamara

Vincent Palamara was born in Pittsburgh and graduated from Duquesne University with a degree in Sociology. Although not even born when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Vince brings fresh eyes to an old case. In fact, Vince would go on to study the largely overlooked actions - and inactions - of the United States Secret Service in unprecedented detail, as well as achieving a world's record in the process, having interviewed and corresponded with over 80 former agents (the House Select Committee on Assassinations had the old record of 46 with a 6 million dollar budget and subpoena power from Congress), not to mention many surviving family members, White House aides, and even quite a few Parkland and Bethesda medical witnesses for a corresponding project. The result was Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect President Kennedy. Vince is also the author of the books JFK: From Parkland To Bethesda, The Not-So-Secret Service, Who's Who in the Secret Service, and Honest Answers about the Murder of President John F. Kennedy: A New Look at the JFK Assassination. All told, Vince has been favorably mentioned in over 140 JFK and Secret Service related books to date (including two whole chapters in Murder in Dealey Plaza, The Secret Service: The Hidden History Of An Enigmatic Agency by Philip Melanson, and the Final Report of the Assassination Records Review Board, among many others), often at length, in the bibliographies, and in the Secret Service - and even medical evidence - areas of these works. Vince has appeared on the History Channel's THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY (VHS and DVD), C-SPAN, Newsmax TV, A COUP IN CAMELOT (DVD/BLU RAY), KING KILL '63, THE MAN BEHIND THE SUIT (DVD), National Geographic's JFK: THE FINAL HOURS (including on DVD), PCN, BPTV, local cable access television, YouTube, radio, newspapers, print journals, at national conferences, and all over the internet. Also, Vince's original research materials, or copies of said materials, are stored in the National Archives (by request under Deed Of Gift by the ARRB), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Harvard University, the Assassination Archives and Research Center, and the Dallas Public Library. Vince Palamara has become known (as he was dubbed by the History Channel in 2003) "the Secret Service expert." As former JFK Secret Service agent Joe Paolella proclaimed: "You seem to know a lot about the Secret Service, maybe even more than I do!" Agent Dan Emmett calls Vince a Secret Service expert in his new book.
