It started in April 2012, when a dozen Secret Service agents advancing a trip by President Obama to Colombia were caught carousing with prostitutes.  It turns out the misbehavior of Secret Service agents back at least another 5 years. What started with the Columbia caper was the investigative reporting of Carol Leonnig of the Washington Post, which won her a second Pulitzer Prize in the last 2 years.  What she found, Leonnig told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE, was a Secret Service culture of cover-up and denial whenever the team responsible for the President's protection did something wrong.  A more recent example was the March 2015 incident in which two very high-ranking agents, both suspected of being drunk, used their car to nudge aside a security barricade and almost ran over a suspected bomb left in front of the White House. The whole misadventure went officially un-reported until Leonnig broke the story.
