. this is democracy at its best. thank you. >> mr. rhoades, you are now recognized for five minutes. mr. rhoades: ranking members of the committee, thank you for the opportunity to speak to you regarding the use of tsa's punitive directed reassignment, misconduct, retaliation, and its impact on security. directed reassignments have been used by tsa senior leadership as a means to silence dissent, force early retirement or resignation. senior leader misconduct and retaliation help explain why tsa underperforms. recently i was asked to profile somalis, community members visiting my office. i will not do this, i am not tiff-tiff. additionally my supervisor accused me of quote, going native. after attending a meeting at a local mosque. those in the community in minneapolis know i would never betray their trust by profilin them. this is not reflective of the entire u.s. government. these problems are rooted in the leadership and culture, ours is a culture of misconduct, retaliation, lack of trust, coverups and the refusal to hold senior leaders accountable for poor judgement and malfeasence.
