Amid allegations of mismanagement, Kelly Hoggan, TSA’s assistant administrator for the Office of Security Operations, has been removed from his position.
CNN reports the House Oversight Committee was not happy with allegations of retaliation against whistleblowers and the $90,000 in bonuses that Hoggan received.
The bonuses came at a time when security lines were lengthening.
TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger said he did not “tolerate” potential retaliation and planned to “look into it.”
A memo from Neffenger to employees also announced several changes to TSA management.
“These adjustments will enable more focused leadership and screening operations at critical airports in the national transportation system,” Neffenger wrote in the memo, which CNN obtained from an official within the agency.
