TSA admin Pistole refuses to testify before Congress

by Lisa Simeone on November 29, 2012


Once again, TSA administrator John Pistole is thumbing his nose at Congress and refusing to testify.

Pistole claims that the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Aviation has no jurisdiction over the TSA.

So let me get this straight: Pistole thinks that a Congressional subcommittee, part of the body that approves the TSA’s $8-billion-a-year budget, paid for by U.S. taxpayers, has no jurisdiction over the TSA.

This isn’t the first time Pistole has refused to testify before Congress. The TSA administrator apparently thinks he’s above the law. He thinks his entire agency is above the law, as he’s even refusing to send anyone else from the the TSA to testify in his place.

I don’t know what to call this behavior other than overweening arrogance. If not criminality.

Subpoena his ass.
