MSNBC: Dozens of TSA workers fired, suspended for screening violations

Joe Myxter at MSNBC adds some new details:

MSNBC:
Dozens of TSA workers fired, suspended for screening violations


A short quote:
The Transportation Security Administration fired five employees and suspended 38 others [emphasis added] on Friday for violating security procedures at Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers, Fla.
I think the 38 suspensions had not been mentioned before. In addition:
The security workers violated protocol by willfully not performing random checks, TSA found in an investigation. The violations occurred over a two-month period in 2011, TSA spokesman David Castelveter told msnbc.com.
The incidents happened in 2011, so it has taken TSA at least six months to take action.
