TSA Hires Convicted Felons

Yes, that title is correct and here is the proof.. I think I could get past the notion of a youthful indiscretion, which evidently is how TSA views this situation were it not for this:

The employee did not divulge on his application—though a records check last fall did—that he had been found guilty of robbery within the past 10 years.

Normally, if the TSA was willing to live with a felony conviction (whatever their basis) I'd find a way to suck it up, assuming the employee told the truth to begin with. However, the foregoing makes it pretty plain: The Employee Failed To Disclose The Conviction -- i.e. he lied.

This is not my idea of my tax dollars at work for homeland security. Is it yours?
