The son of a former Los Angeles fire chief was charged Monday with bribing a federal Transportation Security Administration officer at Los Angeles International Airport to help him smuggle marijuana past security on nine separate trips.

Millage Peaks IV admitted to FBI agents that he and his associates made the trips with the aid of a TSA officer, whom they paid $5,000 to $6,000 in bribes to avoid detection...

Peaks and TSA Officer Dianne Perez were arrested on bribery charges Sunday following what the FBI said was his most recent attempt

...

Perez, a TSA officer for seven and a half years, was assigned to run bags through an X-ray machine and search for explosive, dangerous items or dense items. Although she initially told investigators that Sunday was only her second time to move bags through security for Peaks, she later said she had helped him many more times.

TSA agent smuggling narcotics for a measley $6,000. How much would a muzzie need to pay her to smuggle WMD’s? $100K?

Something to think about, eh?

Forget about the $100K. The inside agents would be loyal to the cause, doing it for nothing. The muzzies probably have hundreds if not thousands of sleeper agents in place across our nation. PC thinking would not bar them from working in sensitive areas.
