The 43 disciplined workers, a combination of front-line screeners and supervisors, represent about 15 percent of the roughly 280 TSA employees at Southwest Florida International Airport.
The News-Press reported Monday that it's one of the largest disciplinary actions TSA has taken in the agency's 10-year history.
The TSA said that during a two-month period last year, as many as 400 passengers who underwent routine screening at the airport never got additional random checks.
