Why is it that Lynn Woolsey bills herself as a champion of civil rights, but when it comes to the rights of people to be treated respectfully by the TSA at airports, she is silent? Where is her determination to right the wrongs being done by the TSA? Where is her willingness to enter into alliance with other House members and craft a bill that will rein in the improper and unconstitutional methods of the TSA?
Today we learn again of the TSA using invasive search methods on cancer survivor Tom Sawyer. It wasn’t enough that they humiliated him in an earlier search. No, once again they searched him and when they found his necessary urostomy bag managed to spill its contents on him. What utter insanity. This search should NEVER have taken place at all. It is a clear violation of this and every other innocents passenger’s basic civil rights.
So, once again, where are YOU, Rep. Woolsey? Why aren’t you taking action? Why aren’t these civil rights important to you?
