Report: TSA employee misconduct up 26% in 3 years

Their job is to keep air travelers safe in the wake of the September 11, 2001, attacks. But just how good of a job are they doing?

A new government report says misconduct by Transportation Security Administration workers has increased more than 26% in the last three years.

Some of the most serious violations include: Employees sleeping on the job, letting family and friends go without being screened, leaving work without permission and stealing.

The Government Accountability Office report released this week says more than 9,000 cases of misconduct were documented over a three-year span.

More than 1,900 of the incidents were deemed significant enough to be possible security threats.
