After being fired, Egan has defended his posts on the same Facebook page that led to his removal.
"It has now been a Month since I was Targeted … for exercising my Freedom of Speech on this very Internet Forum," he said in a post on Nov. 7.
"Since that day my life has become a downward spiral. I have lost my Living after 9 years with the DHS/TSA even though TSA admits I have 'No History of Formal Discipline' and 'Your Performance... appraisals have been Acceptable,' " he continued. "This is including 2 Role Model of Excellence evaluations which is the Highest Rating a TSA/TSO can get."
"My personal life is in shambles, and I spent a week in the Hospital," Egan also said in the post. "On top of all this I cannot find an Attorney to Defend me. I have Never been the type to beg for help, but I am now. I need a Lawyer with the Guts to fight for the 1st Amendment, and Im asking all of you for help in finding this person."
