Just another day at the TSA. Hopefully Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn's report is about reforming (or eliminating) the TSA and not a money grab like GOP Congressman Mica because it raises more serious problems at the agency.
We've all heard about the thefts by TSA agents and recently discovered the Philadelphia airport hired a child molester but the TSA being the TSA, there's always something else that defies logic. How does the TSA continue to be so untrusted and disliked yet have Congress calling for more fees to give the TSA even more budget?
Blackburn's report entitled "Not on My Watch: 50 Failures of TSA's Transportation Security Officers" shows photos and criminal records of the TSA's worst offenders, from statutory rape to murder.
"Many of them have committed the crimes while in their TSA uniforms," said Congresswoman Blackburn.
The crimes date back to 2005 and include several offenders from the tri-state area.
One of the former TSA agents was recently convicted for stealing someone's laptop at the Memphis airport. The theft happened in the baggage claim area while the agent was on break.
