Update on Jenna Bush Hager
The big question about Jenna Bush Hager's Secret Service van being towed in Baltimore for unpaid tickets: Why does she still have security two months after her dad left office?
"There's a transition period anytime we have a protectee," said Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan. He told us President Obama signed an executive order giving Jenna and sister Barbara Bush continued protection, but Donovan declined to specify for how long.
Under government rules, children of former presidents typically have security until they are 16 years old. Former presidents and first ladies used to have lifelong protection, but a new law gives them 10 years after leaving office, so George and Laura Bush will be covered until 2019; Dick and Lynne Cheney receive six months.
