Sole Witness and Deciding Official For The TSA's Case Has Been Demoted Twice Since Firing Robert Mac

In March 2011, the Project On Government Oversight in Washington DC conducted an investigation and discovered that the senior manager who was the sole witness and deciding official has been demoted twice since he fired Robert MacLean. MacLean's deciding official, Frank Donzanti, went from the Special Agent in Charge of all TSA law enforcement operations in California and Hawaii to a non-supervisory position at a small airport.

Since February 2010, Donzanti has been under investigation by the TSA Office of Inspection and the U.S. Office of Special Counsel for sexual harassment and quid pro quo arrangement allegations.

Famous quotes containing the words demoted, firing, case, sole, witness, deciding and/or official:

    If there is a price to pay for the privilege of spending the early years of child rearing in the driver’s seat, it is our reluctance, our inability, to tolerate being demoted to the backseat. Spurred by our success in programming our children during the preschool years, we may find it difficult to forgo in later states the level of control that once afforded us so much satisfaction.
    Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)

    The sight of a planet through a telescope is worth all the course on astronomy; the shock of the electric spark in the elbow, outvalues all the theories; the taste of the nitrous oxide, the firing of an artificial volcano, are better than volumes of chemistry.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In the case of pirates, say, I would like to know whether that profession of theirs has any peculiar glory about it. It sometimes ends in uncommon elevation, indeed; but only at the gallows.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Wait a second while I take a swig off this bottle: it’s my true and only Helicon, my Caballine fount, my sole Enthusiasm. Here, drinking, I deliberate, I reason, I resolve and conclude. After the epilogue I laugh, I write, I compose, I drink. Ennius drinking would write, writing would drink.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    Someone said: “There are two people to whom I have never given a lot of thought: that bears witness to my love for them.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    More than a decade after our fellow citizens began bedding down on the sidewalks, their problems continue to seem so intractable that we have begun to do psychologically what government has been incapable of doing programmatically. We bring the numbers down—not by solving the problem, but by deciding it’s their own damn fault.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    No sane local official who has hung up an empty stocking over the municipal fireplace, is going to shoot Santa Claus just before a hard Christmas.
    Alfred E. Smith (1873–1944)
