So to make a long story short I’m a TSA supervisor and I went for CBP Officer. I took the poly in March 2019 and failed. In August 2019, I received a revocation letter saying that because I admitted to certain things, my clearance is being revoked. The admissions I made are:
Smoked weed from 2003-2007 (about 50 times)
Tried cocaine twice
My wife smokes weed occasionally
Had a prescription pill problem for 3 months after shoulder surgery
They were saying that I contradicted my original e86 for tsa (filled out in 2014) when asked about drugs in the last 7 years. I answered truthfully because it had been over 7 years (I incorrectly recalled dates on my poly).
So I ended up getting a lawyer and responding to the SOR in September 2019. Didn’t hear back from the CSO until March 2020 (he upheld revocation). Submitted appeal in April with medical record showing that surgery was in 2006.
I have yet to hear back but I don’t even understand how this is an issue? It seems as though every mitigating factor is covered (it’s been 13 years since ANY drug use, I’m married with 2 kids, never received any kind of discipline at work)
Has anyone ever heard of this happening?
