Some people don't know when to quit.

Marilyn Hartman had been caught trying to sneak onto planes seven times this year, and despite her infamous record, she just successfully stowed away on a Southwest Airlines plane and flew from San Jose to Los Angeles. Eighth time's the charm, apparently.

This champion stowaway has been massing attention over the past year, being reported on almost every time she gets caught. Many believe her previous successes of sneaking past security and boarding planes has called TSA's security measures into question.

Hartman has been the biggest nuisance to San Francisco International Airport (SFO), where she tried three times to board planes headed for Hawaii. Hartman has claimed, in the past, that she suffers from cancer and would like to go someplace warmer. Sympathetic internet fans of Hartman are currently trying to raise the funds, via gofundme, to buy her a legitimate ticket to Hawaii. The gofundme project has already collected $1,300 of the needed $2,500.

Check out the gallery, above, for Hartman's previous mughsots this year, which will undoubtedly be plastered in every TSA lunchroom around the country. Read more about the story here.
