Female senator tweets about ‘very uncomfortable’ screening by TSA

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) complained Monday she was subject to a very uncomfortable screening by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

McCaskill tweeted about the experience before boarding a flight on Monday.

The senator, who has complained about the TSA’s security techniques in the past, tweeted that she was selected for a pat-down and that the experience was not a pleasant one.

“‪Today in my airport screening, test on my hands was positive,” McCaskill wrote to her 89,100 followers. “Got private, more aggressive pat down. OMG. #veryuncomfortable‬.”

In 2011, McCaskill referred to TSA pat-downs as “love pats” that she said made her not look forward to flying.

“I try to avoid a pat-down at all costs,” McCaskill told TSA Administrator John Pistole during a Senate hearing that year. “There are many times women put their hands on me in a way that if it was your daughter or your sister or your wife, you would be upset.”
