TSA agents fired for groping 'attractive' male travelers

Two security agents at Denver International airport have been fired over allegations they manipulated the screening system to allow one of them to grope male travelers.

The TSA says a female screener worked with a male colleague to allow him to grope male passengers he thought were attractive.

According to officials, the female screener set her computer to indicate a woman was being screened so the machine would find an anomaly in the genital area, requiring a pat-down.

The female screener admitted to 11 such incidents.

TSA calls the alleged acts "egregious and intolerable."
