A short quote, that describes the suspension punishment:
A spokesperson for the TSA emailed us this statement: "Those proposed for removal or suspension will have seven days to reply. The suspensions will be two weeks. We have brought in employees from other airports to cover so that there will be no affect on operations."
I would like to see the TSA spokesperson tell us what effect the cost of temporary TSOs from other airports will have on the taxpayer's wallet.
