By a ratio of nine to one over Romney

TSA employees overwhelmingly back President Barack Obama for a second term to a ratio of nine to one over Mitt Romney, indicating how the federal agency has become a politicized security force emblematic of Obama’s big government agenda.
“If you find yourself wondering, “Do TSA employees have a preferred candidate in this year’s presidential election?” the answer appears to be yes,” writes Jim Geraghty.
Up to June 30, people who listed their employer as the Transportation Security Administration donated $4,379 dollars to the Obama 2012 presidential campaign whereas TSA workers donated just $498 to Mitt Romney.
The right to travel freely without undue harassment has been savaged by the Department of Homeland Security under the Obama administration to a degree never before witnessed in the United States.
Indeed, the TSA itself has become one of the primary targets of Americans infuriated with the rapacious growth of big government under Obama.
It’s no surprise that TSA agents are firmly behind Obama given the fact that the federal agency has massively expanded under his administration.
Having conducted over 9000 unannounced checkpoints throughout the course of last year, independent of the TSA’s role in airports, Congress gave the green light for a $24 million injection of extra funding in addition to the $110 million spent in fiscal year 2011 to cover 2012.
This money helped fund the expansion of the VIPR program which has TSA agents patrolling highways, train stations, bus terminals and other transport hubs.
As a whistleblower recently revealed to Infowars, more TSA workers are also being used in airports at locations besides security lanes.
“We’re doing patrols in the parking lot with dogs, we’re even going as far out to the train station because the train station is connected to the airport here and we have guys walking around the train station, walking around the rental cars, we’re inspecting cars coming into the parking garage, I mean we’ve fully expanded – we’re no longer just at the gate and just at the security checkpoint,” said the whistleblower, a TSA supervisor.
