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.

This is good information to know.
I was under the assumption everyone within the President's family circle was protected for the rest of their lives.
Thanks for the update.

Ugh. There is absolutely no good reason why any POTUS family members should have Secret Service protection once Daddy is out of the WH. It's a total waste of tax dollars. How exactly is she in harm's way, by the way? She's an adult. Let her husband protect her. Will Papa Barack give a free pass to Sasha and Malia when they're in their 20s and married, too? Moves like this make me gag.

I think children of presidents should have protection long after they are 16. They didn't choose this life but have to bear the consequences of public life.

Not sure when I would cut it off but 30 sounds about right.
