The premier association for former U.S. Secret Service agents Wednesday expelled the special agent who suggested she wouldn’t take “a bullet” to defend President Trump because she considered him “a disaster” for the country.
Kerry O’Grady, the agent in question who runs the Secret Service’s Denver office, was an associate member of the association until Wednesday when the organization official rescinded her membership. The Association of Former Agents U.S. Secret Service, or AFAUSSS, also known as Old Star, cited comments O’Grady made on Facebook, first reported by the Washington Examiner.
In an emailed notice to all of its members on Wednesday, the organization said its Board of Directors had decided to expel O’Grady from its membership. The Board of Directors vote to expel her was unanimous, the email said.
“By 12:00N January 25, 2017, a motion was made by me and seconded and given to the Board of Directors to address the expulsion of Associate Member O’Grady …” Jan Gilhooly, president of AFAUSSS, wrote in the email sent to all members. “[O’Grady] engaged in conduct deemed by a majority of the Board to be detrimental to the Association of the U.S. Secret Service …”
The Board of Directors voted unanimously for expulsion, according to the email, which noted that she would be notified by registered letter of the Board’s decision.
The board’s action came after O’Grady attempted to enter the organization’s website but was denied based on “the nature of concern and comments by members and after personal examination.”
Gilhooly said he would keep members informed when any further information becomes available.
