Exclamation Rep Mica:"meltdown of TSA operations” & “significant system failure”@Florida airport

Politico's Burgess Everett has breaking news about an incident at an unspecified Florida airport:

Politico:
John Mica tells TSA to come clean about airport 'meltdown'

6/1/12 10:35 PM EDT


A short quote:
Rep. John Mica accused TSA on Friday night of keeping the press “in the dark” about an incident that may indicate a “dramatic meltdown of TSA operations” and a “significant system failure” at an unspecified Florida airport.

“I am calling on TSA to make details of this latest meltdown public, and disappointed they would try to keep the media in the dark about this latest system failure that is once again embarrassing to that agency,” the Florida Republican said.

An aide to Mica said the House Transportation and Infrastructure chairman received information of “proposed disciplinary action,” but declined to comment further. Background on a news release from the committee said the incident “may involve a substantial number of TSA employees, including high-ranking airport security officials.”
The article also includes a TSA statement that implies that TSA employees are actually being fired over this incident.
