Secret Service agent's gun found in Romney's plane

A Secret Service agent assigned to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign plane accidentally left a gun in the aircraft’s bathroom.

The gun was found in the restroom by a reporter traveling with Romney shortly before he left the Republican convention in Tampa, Florida to speak at the American Legion convention in Indianapolis on Wednesday.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said that the "matter will be handled internally."

"We're aware of the incident," Donovan added. "We take the care and custody of our equipment, especially firearms, very seriously."

Romney never appeared to be in any danger while traveling with a small group of staff, Secret Service agents and journalists.
