The Washington Post reports that the two Secret Service supervisors who were forced out this week have been identified as David Randall Chaney and Greg Stokes, both based in Washington.

"Chaney, who had been a supervisor in the Secret Service’s international programs division, retired under pressure Wednesday, according to people familiar with an internal agency investigation," the Post reports.

Chaney reportedly joked on his Facebook page that he was "really checking her out" as he protected former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin while working on her security detail during the 2008 campaign.

David Chaney made the comment on a photo of Palin that showed him standing the background posted on his Facebook page in January 2009.

Speaking to Fox News, Palin said the scandal is "a symptom of government run amok."

Stokes, identified as the assistant special agent in charge of the K9 division, was told that he would be fired.

According to the Post, "Chaney and Stokes have each worked at the Secret Service for nearly two decades, and both have served significant time with the presidential protection detail, people who know the men said."
