WASHINGTON (AP) — Scores of U.S. Secret Service employees improperly accessed the decade-old, unsuccessful job application of a congressman who was investigating scandals inside the agency, a new government report said Wednesday.

The actions by the employees could represent criminal violations under the U.S.
The air travel safety system in the United States is about to set a dubious record, for the number of firearms discovered in carry-on baggage at airport security checkpoints.
