Thomas Harkins, former Catholic priest defrocked for sexual abuse, is discovered working for the TSA

The Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) just can’t seem to get anything right.  Or maybe they never had any intention of getting things right.

Regardless, hiring a former priest who was fired for sexually abusing little girls is a low point even for TSA morons, not that I find this to be a big shocker given the TSA's propensity for child molestation at airports across America.

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.

Until 2002, Harkins was a Catholic priest working at churches across South Jersey. But the Diocese of Camden removed him from ministry because it found he sexually abused two young girls. Now, in a new lawsuit, a third woman is claiming she also is one of Harkins’ victims.

His official title is “Transportation Security Manager, Baggage” but that doesn’t sit well with some.

Karen Polesir is a Philadelphia spokeswoman with the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP).

“As the public, we are screened to our underwear getting on a plane, and yet they hire a man like that.”

Naturally the TSA claims that Harkins has nothing to do with passengers, just baggage.

Yeah, whatever.
