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.

2 Ex-FBI Officials Pen a Book on Management Tips Learned on the Job

Ex-FBI officials Kathleen McChesney and William Gavin become the latest ex-agents to pen a book.

The two have teamed up to write a book — “Pick Up Your Own Brass: Leadership the FBI Way”, which offers 50 ” essential leadership lessons based on challenges that FBI officials have faced over the course of their careers” while working at the FBI.

The authors claim the “book can help anyone—established leaders, aspiring leaders, minority leaders, and even ‘accidental executives’ who find themselves managing more than they imagined—build a culture of leadership.”

The two have paid their dues.

McChesney, of Los Angeles, the only female special agent to be named the Bureau’s executive assistant director, left law enforcement after 31 years to take on a leadership position at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Walt Disney Company. She is currently a consultant for businesses and non-profit organizations.

Gavin, a 28-year veteran of the FBI, who resides in Boston, reached the position as assistant director in charge. Since then, he has held executive positions in the health care industry and for a security services provider. He has been a commentator for MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN and is currently a business consultant.

The book will be available on Amazon on May 31. For more info on the book click here.
