U.S. House Committee Investigates Lucrative Bonuses Doled Out to TSA Managers

A U.S. House committee has launched an investigation into awards and bonuses doled out to senior management with TSA.

The news comes a day after FOX 9 revealed that TSA managers were receiving lucrative bonuses.

Kelly Hoggan, the assistant administrator at TSA headquarters in charge of security, received $70,000 in bonuses over three years.

The issue first came to light when Drew Rhoades, an assistant federal security director at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, blew the whistle on bonuses.

“It wasn’t tied to a performance rating, wasn’t tied to any objective basis, if you have a high salary you continue to get performance bonuses,” Rhoades recalled.

TSA said in a statement: “Since his confirmation, Administrator Peter Neffenger has sought to enhance respect, selflessness, collaboration, and accountability in all activities, across the agency, from executive decision-making to core security functions. TSA will not tolerate illegal, unethical or immoral conduct. When such conduct is alleged, it is investigated thoroughly, and when appropriate, by an outside authority. When an investigation finds that misconduct has occurred, TSA takes the appropriate action. This is the case regardless of seniority or position.”
