WashPost: Obama signed executive order extending Jenna Bush's Secret Service protection
The Washington Post's Reliable Source column has more today on why Baltimore resident Jenna Bush continues to receive Secret Service protection even though she no longer qualifies under the law.
Columnists Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts reported that Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan "told us President Obama signed an executive order giving Jenna and sister Barbara Bush continued protection, but Donovan declined to specify for how long"
The Secret Service Web site outlines the rules for protection: children of former presidents are typically entitled to protection until they reach the age of 16.
A van used as part of the protection team for Jenna Bush (legally now Jenna Hager) was towed last week from its parking space in South Baltimore after it had accumulated six tickets, news organizations including the Baltimore Sun reported.
