A Transportation Security Administration airport security worker has been removed from checking baggage because of a note with sexual implications he left for a passenger at Newark's Liberty International Airport.
Jill Filipovic, a New York blogger who is also a lawyer, tweeted Monday that a note was left in her bag which contained a sex toy, according to reports that said "get your freak on." The note was written on a TSA notice of inspection form, leading Filipovic to believe it was written by someone at airport security.
TSA said on its blog Tuesday that it had conducted an investigation into the incident and removed the employee that was responsible from duty.
"That individual was immediately removed from screening operations and appropriate disciplinary action has been initiated," the agency wrote.
"The handwritten note was highly inappropriate and unprofessional, and TSA has zero tolerance for this type of behavior."
The TSA blog Tuesday also said the agency had issued an apology to Filipovic, who tweeted a picture of the note.

On the bright side, when returned to duty, the employee will be moved to the passenger screening area. /s?
TSA and blog. Two words that separately inspire great admiration and confidence. Together, they inspire even greater admiration and confidence.
Let me count the ways....
Some people have the hubris to act aggrieved when they get caught with pornography and it engenders ribald ribbing.
There is no “there” there on this one.
The young woman has turned this into something she does not deserve to live down, and likely will not.
She looks a bit like Jane Fonda
Ah, but remember that we're all victims in this current culture.
And think of the publicity attendant on this occasion of a ribald note. :)
She looks like a young Jane Fonda in that pic.
Here is her Flickr page. She is very “out” as far as being highly sexed and maybe into women too. She has plastered herself all over the internet under jillnic83 unless I am vastly mistaken
pretty sad when a woman can’t even go on a small trip without bringing all her enormous dildos with her.
I think she needs a boy friend.
Ahhh yes....we little citizenry should always avail ourselves of the opportunity to amuse our government overlords. I'm sure you'll feel the same way when a TSA agent leaves a note just poking a little fun at your wife/girlfriend/daughter's tampons, menstrual cramp medication, bras, panties, etc.
She’s not camera-shy. That’s fersure.
Not that I’m complaining....
Most people would have tossed the note in the trash to avoid the embarrassment of letting the world know they carried a sex toy in their luggage.
Whether or not she is looking for a job there are many porn producers who would love to now turn her into a star.
I am honest enough to concede that dildos and vibrators are in the same category as stacks of hustler magazines, "Mommy dominatrix" type porn novels, or sex videos.
Since I lack the hypocrisy to pretend that pornography, clothing, and hygiene supplies are all in the same category I would tease my wife too were such to happen.
You can put on whatever affected airs you want, however.
“”That individual was immediately removed from screening operations and appropriate disciplinary action has been initiated,” the agency wrote”
That’s not worthy of termination??...... Ohhh, I forgot.. it’s a -FEDERAL- employee... They can’t be fired... sorry my
I never criticized your honesty or sincerity, but I do think you're pretty naive if you think a TSA agent who would leave that type of juvenile note is going to exercise a level of restraint that makes the same differentiation that you do. If you're ok with a Federal employee taking the time onyour tax dollars to harass a female traveler, that's all well and good. I'd prefer he actually spend that time looking for real contraband, but that's just me.
Anyways, like I said, when your wife/girlfriend/daughter gets a little note, share it with us here so we can all have a good chuckle with you.
