TSA Nominee Southers lied to a Senate panel in a signed affidavit

We should thank Senator DeMint for putting a hold on this man. It turns out he used his official position for personal reasons. That is unacceptable. He is a liar too.

The Washington Post reported:
Southers’s admission that he was involved in a questionable use of law enforcement background data has been a source of concern among civil libertarians, who believe the TSA performs a delicate balancing act in tapping into passenger information to find terrorists while also protecting citizens’ privacy.
