Top TSA Official Promoted After Settling Sexual-Harassment Lawsuit With Taxpayer Money
Just one month after the TSA used taxpayer money to settle a lawsuit against a federal air marshal, he was reportedly promoted to a top position at the agency.
Deputy Assistant Director Charles “Chas” Cook, the number-three official overseeing the entire Federal Air Marshal Service, was the subject of a 2014 federal lawsuit and an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Complaint over alleged sexual misconduct and physical assault toward one of his employees.
Sonya Labosco, a former police officer and air-marshal supervisor, spoke out publicly this week after alleging in a federal complaint that Cook once put his hand over his penis and told her that he “had eight inches of cock” anytime she wanted it. The suit—and Cook’s promotion—were first reported on Monday evening by Fox 46.
