Top air-safety official resigns
Man in charge of federalizing airport screeners lasts just 2 months, leaves 'for personal reasons'

Quote:
WASHINGTON The Transportation Department official in charge of federalizing security-checkpoint screeners at the nation's 429 commercial airports has resigned after just two months on the job, WorldNetDaily has learned.

Kevin Houlihan in January was named associate deputy undersecretary for aviation operations at the newly created Transportation Security Administration.

"He left last Monday for personal reasons," a TSA spokesman told WorldNetDaily.

His resignation comes at a critical time for the Bush administration, as it tries to meet a Nov. 19 deadline to rehire 28,000 screeners making sure they're all U.S. citizens with no criminal backgrounds and recruit security directors for each airport. So far, only eight directors have been named.
