Third nominee for TSA chief to go before Senate on June 10
The Obama Administration’s third nominee to head up the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will go before the Senate Commerce Committee on June 10, according to a report in the Journal of Commerce Online.
President Obama named John S. Pistole, deputy director of the FBI, on May 17 after his first two choices for the job, Erroll Southers and Robert Harding, withdrew their names under congressional fire, according to the report.
The president called Pistole “a valuable asset to our administration’s efforts to strengthen the security and screening measures at our airports,” according to the report.
