Two TSA agents from the Denver International Airport have been fired from their jobs after allegedly using those creepy x-ray scanners to hand select men to grope.
The employees’ names have not been released, so we’ll just call them Perv #1 and Perv #2.
Perv #1 is a gay male and Perv #2 is a female. According to police, whenever a man he thought was attractive stepped into the x-ray scanner, Perv #1 would signal Perv #2, who would rig the machine to flag the traveler, thus requiring a
government-sanctioned molestation enhanced pat down.
Perv #1 would then lead his victim into a private area, where he would grope his privates with the palm of his hand (TSA guidelines mandate that all screenings be conducted with the back of the hand) before sending him on his merry way.
It is believed “roughly a dozen” men fell victim to the scheme, which began all the way back in November.
“These alleged acts are egregious and intolerable,” a TSA spokesman said. “All allegations of misconduct are thoroughly investigated by the agency. And when substantiated, employees are held accountable.”
Perv #2 reportedly confessed to the plot, but the Denver District Attorney’s Office says it will not be pressing charges “because there was no reasonable likelihood of conviction and no victim had been identified.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time TSA employees have been accused of getting handy with male travelers. In 2012, a former U.S. Air Force officer wrote to his local Congressman after he claims he was molested at an Orlando Airport when a TSA agent “shoved his genitals to one side in order to ensure ‘it really is your crotch.’”
