Senator seeks five IG reports on TSA nominee – GovExec

A key Republican senator said on Wednesday she is not ready to endorse President Obama’s pick to head the Transportation Security Administration, saying the White House has been slow and misleading in providing information and that she has learned there are five inspectors general reports into the nominee’s previous work.

Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs ranking member Susan Collins, R-Maine, pressed retired Army Maj. Gen. Robert Harding during his confirmation hearing Wednesday morning about the work his former company, Harding Security Associates, did in Iraq in 2004.

In an interview after the hearing, Collins said she is still awaiting information on five IG reports concerning Harding.
