    Only 50? (expletive deleted), the Master Lists contain thousands.

    Perhaps Rep. Blackburn needs to review our Master List.

    Looks like Blackburn is also tired of getting groped and robbed when contending with TSA.

    Congresswoman: TSA Hiring Pedophiles To Conduct Pat Downs

    Describing the report's scathing review of TSA HR, citing pizza-box recruitment and lack of background checks, the story goes on to mention a prank call made to TSA:

    OK, not to nit pick, but what is it "Congressman" Marsha Blackburn and not "Congresswoman?"

    Not that my FB "friends" care, but I just linked the pdf to my page.

    And if I'm logged in, why do I not have permission to view this page or perform this action?

    On the pdf document they had Congressman. I used that for guidance.

    Sorry for the double thread post.

    My question wasn't aimed at your title, boggie dog, but rather at her title on the cover and last pages of the document.

    Check out the list of the worst criminals, uh, respected TSA workers supposedly keeping us safe at the airport, compiled by Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s office.​
    . . . this report provides a small snapshot detailing 50 crimes TSA employees have been arrested for since 2005. This report does not highlight every arrest that has been made since 2005. Collectively, the crimes these individuals have been arrested for illustrates a deepening problem within TSA’s training and hiring practices that makes the United States more susceptible to a domestic threat.​



    Gotta love the list, spelling out which of the crimes these 50 TSA (expletive deleted) were guilty of. A veritable smorgasbord of crime:​
    Theft….15​


    Sex Crimes (Rape, Molestation, Prostitution)….8​


    Child Pornography….6​


    Assault….5​


    Bribery….3​


    Drugs….3​


    Illegal Firearms….3​


    Airport Screening Failures…..2​


    Murder….1​


    Conspiracy….1​


    Impersonating a Federal Officer….1​


    Driving Under the Influence….1​



    Here’s a lovely one — a child molester (only one of many we’ve written about here at TSA News):​
    CHARLES BENNETT [photo above]


    Airport: Orlando International​


    Position: Transportation Security Officer Crime: Child Molestation​


    Date: February 1, 2010​


    “A TSA agent has been arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious molestation of a minor after police say he tried to keep a girl as a sex slave. Police arrested 57-year-old Charles Bennett of Winter Garden on Friday. A 15-year-old girl was the one who reported him to police.​


    According to reports from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the Orange County Jail, the 15- year-old victim confided in her caregivers that Bennett had touched her inappropriately three years ago when she was 12. She says he also asked the young girl to be his “sex slave,” an accusation investigators say Bennett admitted to in a written statement to police.​



    So the TSA can’t keep its work force devoid of creeps like these and we really believe they’re doing anything other than giving our genitals a feel-up and seeking an opportunity to lift our cash, iPods, and jewelry?​
    (Editor’s Note: Bill Fisher did a brief wrap-up last year of sex crimes by TSA workers. -LS)
