Americans have known for years that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is completely out of control.
It’s considered by many to be one of the worst federal agencies in the country.
And now a high-ranking TSA official was just arrested for one disgusting crime against a patient with dementia.
A high-ranking official within Joe Biden’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was recently arrested for an outstanding warrant.
Accused of elder abuse and forgery
According to Fox News Digital, TSA Assistant Federal Security Director Maxine McManaman was arrested and taken into custody in Atlanta by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection on December 28.
The arrest warrant for McManaman was issued by the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office in Florida.
The warrant alleged that McManaman and her accomplice, Delroy Chambers, exploited a relative who is suffering from dementia by falsifying documents in their name.
Details of the warrant were posted on Facebook by the St. Lucie Police Department.
The post stated that “U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Atlanta detained Maxine McManaman, the Assistant Federal Security Director of Transportation Security Administration (TSA), after arriving from an international flight on December 28th, 2023.”
“She was later arrested on a PSLPD arrest warrant for one count of Forgery, a third-degree felony,” the post continued. “She is currently detained at the Clayton County Jail in Georgia awaiting extradition to St. Lucie County.”
The investigation into McManaman began last April after the police received a phone call from someone who wanted to report elder abuse.
The name of the person who made that call has not been revealed.
A brazen attempt to steal property
Florida authorities allege that McManaman and Chambers forged signatures on a quitclaim deed and transferred ownership of a property in a relative’s name over to themselves.
According to the reports, the relative whose property was transferred to the pair could not have signed the quitclaim deed since the individual was in Atlanta on the date listed.
Chambers was arrested on December 20 and charged with two counts of exploitation of an elderly and disabled adult, simple neglect, and two counts of forgery.
He has steadfastly denied the allegations, saying simply that “it’s a family thing.”
In addition to the charges Chambers is facing, McManaman is also facing a third-degree felony charge of forgery.
McManaman has worked for the TSA since 2002 and was in a management position at the airport.
When asked to comment, a TSA spokesperson said that it “holds its employees to the highest professional and ethical standards and has no tolerance for misconduct on or off duty.”
The spokesperson went on to say that “any employee who fails to meet our fundamental ethical standards is held accountable.”
McManaman has been placed on leave pending an investigation by the authorities.
This is yet another black eye for a rogue agency that has come under increasing scrutiny for its actions in recent years.
There have now been multiple calls by members of Congress to rein in the agency.
Legislation has also been introduced to shut down or defund the TSA.
This latest scandal certainly won’t help the agency in that fight.
