More TSA drug smugglers - ATL version

Two TSA employees were indicted for conspiring to smuggle cocaine and heroin. They have the usual charge of intent to distribute. Is there any type of charge for abuse of public trust?

"...Federal prosecutors said Cook met with undercover officers posing as drug cartel members in January. Cook was given fake drugs and got them to a terminal, prosecutors said. They said he charged $2,500 per kilogram..."

Chunk change comparing to toll both attendants (3 of them ) at Udvar Hazy museum who stole $400 000.00 in less than a year

"Does not reflect the 60,000,000,000 other employees..." and such.

Now where did I put my official looking "this in no way reflects on the other 56,000 TSA employees" rubber stamp soon to be emblazoned on the soon to be released TSA statement

How could be happening? He was caught at TSA checkpoint. How did sneak the cocaine past at TSA checkpoint. Unfortunately, he will go to prison for rest of his life. I didn't realize Mr. Cook who work for TSA but, he quit from TSA. He didn't have a security clearance. No one ever bring a smugglers drugs at airport. Nobody! Must keep the drugs off the property.
