    The Transportation Security Administration might be allowed to grope airline passengers in the name of homeland security — but using software to spy on its employees’ computer activity is going too far, said a pair of House Democrats.
    In a letter obtained by POLITICO, Reps. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi and Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas call for the TSA to scrap plans to buy software that keeps tabs on a wide range of agency employee electronic communications. Thompson and Lee are worried the software would give the agency a powerful tool to track and root out whistleblowers.

    They do not need expensive software, many of us will report their transgressions for free!!

    Keep in mind, Rep. Jackson is the one who was applauding the TSA doing public bus inspections in Houston. Someone may want to inform her that all corporate IT departments already deploy said software.

    How about hiring and training good managers vice relying on a computer?
