TSA 'Demonstration' of 'Enhanced Pat Down' Backfires in Congress

If they were uncomfortable watching, I hope they realized how uncomfterable it would be to experience.

"Apparently the TSA went to Capitol Hill this week to "demonstrate" the new groping pat downs to prove to folks in Congress that they're really not so bad. The only problem? Those watching the gropings seemed to get exactly the opposite sense:


He said that several House staffers were uncomfortable and averted their eyes when the TSA demonstrated an enhanced pat-down in the room of 200 people.



"The dumbest part: they did two pat-down demonstrations -- male on male, and female on female," the House staffer said. And they used a young female TSA volunteer "and in front of a room of 200 people, they touched her breasts and her buttocks. People were averting their eyes. The TSA was trying to demonstrate 'this is not so bad,' but it made people so uncomfortable to watch, that people were averting their eyes."



"They shot themselves in the foot," the staffer continued.

Now, will those in Congress actually do anything about all this?
"

I am hopeful but not holding my breath for any quick action.
