The Palm Beach Post reports:
Four months before a Chinese woman was accused of lying to get into Mar-a-Lago, an 18-year-old college freshman in November fooled Secret Service agents into thinking he was a club member and wandered the grounds for 20 minutes before he was arrested.
An apologetic Mark Lindblom on Tuesday told a federal magistrate that he had no evil intentions when he decided to try and enter the club on the day after Thanksgiving while President Donald Trump and his family were visiting. The Washington, D.C. teenager said he just wanted to see if he could do it.
And, according to accounts from his attorney and a federal prosecutor, it was pretty easy. Visiting his grandparents, who are members of the nearby Palm Beach Bath & Tennis Club, Lindblom simply walked down the beach the two clubs share and stood in line with Mar-a-Lago members.
Lindblom was sentenced to a year of probation. This second incident again raises questions about security protocols at Trump’s properties.
