A recent data breach at Logan International Airport involving a TSA
contract worker, coming amid other high-profile Transportation
Security Administration lapses, casts another cloud over a federal
agency engulfed in turmoil.
In the latest snafu, a Lynn couple is due back in court Wednesday,
accused of selling the identities of at least 16 TSA workers at Logan.
The ID data was taken by a female TSA contract worker who is related
to one of the two Lynn suspects, according to a police report and
The breach drew criticism from at least one security expert.
In the Logan case, it is alleged that Tina M. White, 46, and Michael
J. Washington, 48, got the stolen TSA employee names from Washington’s
niece, a contract clerical worker in the TSA human resources
department at Logan. She no longer works there.
The couple sold the names, Social Security numbers and dates of birth
for $40 each to a contact who set up phony cable, gas and cell phone
accounts, according to an affidavit in Lynn District Court.
The fraud started in November 2008 and continued through 2009.
