Anyone who has travelled via air in the last fifteen years knows that the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) is a slow-moving disaster. Long lines, strip searches, lack of profiling, and much more mar Americans’ viewpoint of the agency. At a hearing earlier this month, the House Oversight Committee talked to the head of the TSA, Kelly Hoggan, and asked pertinent questions about why the man was getting $90,000 bonuses with this mess an obvious problem.
On Monday, May 23, the House Oversight Committee used their Twitter account to announce Hoggan’s dismissal.
Details other than the announcement and the bonus situation are scarce at this point, but no one who is a member of the air travelling public is going to argue that the man needed to go.
