Ginger Allen at CBS11 broke this story two weeks ago. Two days ago, as a result of Allen’s reporting, Sen. Charles Schumer (D, NY) said he would introduce legislation requiring passenger advocates at every airport. So good work, Ginger.
The TSA has responded:
“All of our millimeter wave technology units including those in Dallas have been upgraded with additional privacy enhancements that no longer display passenger-specific images,” the TSA said in a statement. “To further ensure passenger privacy and anonymity, a privacy filter was applied to blur all images.”
So far, so good. A clear victory for the good guys based on good reporting from Ginger Allen.
But I have a question. The TSA knows the general times and the specific gates at DFW where these incidents took place. That means they know which male employees were on those particular shifts. So why haven’t the goofs been fired?
