Accused Child Molesting Former Priest Now Working For TSA

Certainly, not all TSA agents are child molesters (accused or otherwise). But one has to wonder why a governmental security agency doesn't vet employees better. Any potential employee who will come in physical contact with clients - especially children - should undergo extra scrutiny before being hired. But it appears the TSA doesn't even have a minimum standard to protect passengers.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) The CBS 3 I-Team has learned that a Catholic priest who was removed from the ministry over sex abuse allegations now holds a sensitive security post at Philadelphia International Airport.

The security checkpoint between Terminals D and E is a busy place where thousands of people including lots of kids pass through every day. But you might not believe who the I-Team observed working as a TSA supervisor at that checkpoint this week: Thomas Harkins.
