ABSTRACT

Misconduct, Retaliation, and Obstruction at the Transportation Security Administration; Committee on Oversight and Government Reform of the U.S. House of Representatives, Majority Staff Report, 115th Congress, September 2018   [open pdf - 3MB]

"The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is charged with safeguarding America's aviation system. TSA screens more than two million passengers daily at approximately 430 airports. The agency's mission is critical--there is no margin for error. With that in mind, and in light of a dynamic threat environment, it is imperative for TSA's workforce to function cohesively and collaboratively, from senior management to the rank-and-file employees on the front lines of transportation security. In this regard, TSA is failing. Starting in 2015, the Committee received credible allegations of misconduct involving senior-level officials, and retaliation against whistleblowers who spoke up. The Committee launched an investigation and obtained documents and testimony substantiating many of the allegations. Senior TSA officials engaged in recurrent misconduct with minimal consequences. The Committee also found TSA leadership inappropriately used involuntary directed reassignments to retaliate against disfavored employees and whistleblowers, among other tactics."
