In September 2009, Southers was nominated by President Obama but the Senate recessed at the end of 2009, without having taken up the nomination. The delay was due to a hold placed on the nomination by Republican senator Jim DeMint, who opposed the unionization of TSA employees. He cited Southers’ possible support of the unionization of the TSA, which is forbidden in TSA’s founding legislation.
Southers withdrew his nomination in 2010 in a statement by the White House saying, “My nomination has become a lightning rod for those who have chosen to push a political agenda at the risk of the safety and security of the American people.”
