The TSA has outdone itself this time with its invasive new searches: if selected, travelers must choose between having pictures of them naked taken via x-ray, having their genitals very aggressively handled, or not flying.

My legislation is simple. It establishes that airport security screeners are not immune from any US law regarding physical contact with another person, making images of another person, or causing physical harm through the use of radiation-emitting machinery on another person. It means they are subject to the same laws as the rest of us.
