(MEMPHIS) airport screeners are becoming transportation officers through very low traing and standards and it’s a threat to national security.
That’s according to Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn who says she’s uncovered many officers with criminal backgrounds! including a man who ran a prostitution ring.
Congresswoman Blackburn says not only are TSA agents being hired without background checks but they have also created their own rules to promote unqualified people to become federal officers.
Blackburn has just wrapped up an investigation into the TSA’s hiring practices.
