Obama's TSA pick plans to 'join' security with unions

Another one of President Obama's unholy alliances.

From World Net Daily:

President Obama's nominee to head the Transportation Security Administration previously boasted to a major union that he looked forward to "joining" with them to add value to TSA security, WND has learned.

In Senate hearings, nominee Erroll Southers has avoided giving a "yes" or "no" answer over whether he would unionize airport security workers. Unions across the U.S., however, have been lobbying hard for Southers' confirmation.

Critics charge unionizing airport security would impose rules on union workers that could impede national security efforts in combating terrorist threats.

Southers is assistant chief in charge of security and intelligence at the Los Angeles airport's police department.

Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C, placed a "hold" on Southers confirmation over concerns he could undermine safety by unionizing airport security.
