While the TSA cries that they need more money to staff checkpoints, it turns out that 1500 TSA agents have been re-assigned to work security checkpoints at campaign events.
When the Secret Service needs help running security for a political event they turn to the TSA.
…Senator Sanders has been the largest beneficiary, with roughly 755 TSA agents present at his rallies. Mr. Trump has had the second largest TSA presence in the past two months, with 587 agents assisting the Secret Service. Secretary Clinton is in a distant third, with 178 TSA agents at her events since the beginning of April.
Where TSA could really make a difference staffing up airport checkpoints, of course, would be to return 2,800 TSA Behavior Detection Officers back to their original screening duties.
