Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Washington - The head of the Homeland Security Committee in the U.S. Congress, Peter King, has asked Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan to reveal the number of agents involved in the Colombian prostitution scandal.

In a letter to Sullivan, King demanded the names of the government officials involved and other details of the scandal, The Daily Mail reports.
King has also asked whether the agents were carrying weapons or other classified material to their rooms where they brought the women in Cartagena.

He has set a deadline of five days for Sullivan to answer all questions.

Six Secret Service agents have already been fired and it is thought that more will go after the scandal implicated up to 23 government employees.

Investigations have also revealed that one Secret Service agent took a woman to the Hotel Hilton in Cartagena, Colombia, five days before President Obama's arrival.
