Investigation into TSA Misconduct

In any organization with 56,000 employees there is sure to be some rotten eggs in the bunch. The TSA is no different. Today the government released a report highlighting TSA misconduct, CNN's Rene Marsh reports. Some of the misconduct is commonplace, like tardiness and excessive absence, but some could have serious security impact.

The list includes everything from forgery, sexual misconduct to physical fighting and using abusive language.

"There's not even a way to properly report some of the offenses, so this may be just the tip of the iceberg of some of the offenses," says Rep. John Mica.

The government is calling on the agency to improve how they monitor allegations of TSA misconduct and how they follow up after investigating. The TSA tells CNN they are "already working to implement" the recommendation.
