  WASHINGTON (AP) - A Republican lawmaker says three Secret Service employees are being forced out of the agency and two others have been cleared of serious misconduct in the agency's investigation into the prostitution scandal in Colombia.
 
     Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., says he was told by a top Secret Service official that the five remaining cases under investigation are being disposed of.
 
     King says two Secret Service employees are resigning and one is having his national security clearance revoked and will be leaving the agency. 
 
     King says one of the resigning employees stayed at the Hilton in Cartagena, the same hotel where President Barack Obama stayed. The other Secret Service employees stayed at a nearby hotel. 
 
     King says two others under investigation have been cleared of misconduct.
 
     All told, the Secret Service investigated 12 people in connection with the Colombia incident. Six others were forced out last week and one other employee was cleared.
