Why Is This News?

From Fox News:
A Secret Service agent has been placed on administrative leave amid an investigation into allegedly lewd texts sent to a woman following an event with first lady Michelle Obama, confirms.
The agency confirmed the investigation of the unnamed agent following a report in the National Enquirer that he sent the texts to a “prominent Washington, D.C., staffer” he met during a May 20 event co-hosted by Obama and Elizabeth Dole for veteran caregivers.
“The U.S. Secret Service is aware of these allegations,” the agency said in a written statement on Wednesday. “At this time, the individual has been placed on administrative leave pending further investigation.”
The Secret Service said the Department of Homeland Security inspector general’s office will jointly investigate with an internal Secret Service office, “as is our policy with any allegation of misconduct.”...
Further, the official clarified that the phone communications between him and the woman happened while he was off-duty, “approximately nine hours after the completion of the event.”
While the matter is under investigation, the official said others reported the agent was “on his game” during the event itself.
So, the guy is doing his job, was not on duty when he sent the text messages, apparently did not use a Secret service phone and no where in the article did it say that the woman objected to the texts.
So, why is this news?  Most of us have sent texts we may regret or may have even sent sexual type text messages.
So, why is this news?
