(Newser) – Looks like it's time to name names in the Secret Service prostitution scandal. An insider tells CNN that the agent who argued over pay with an alleged hustler is one Arthur Huntington, who has left the Service. He won't talk to reporters, but his neighbors say the 41-year-old is married with two boys. A woman who says she's a family friend calls the accusation "heartbreaking." "I know him and his character," she said. "I would question the allegations."

Another name from unidentified sources: Dania Suarez, who was hired by Service agents that night and later disputed her pay. Suarez, 24, says through her attorney that she's an escort, however, not a prostitute. Sources also say that all alleged hustlers in the scandal were in their early 20s—contrary to reports that certain women may have been underage. Either way, the Service has issued new rules, including no foreigners in hotel rooms and no going to "non-reputable" establishments.
