The controversy over airport pat-downs by the Transportation Security Administration has spread to children. After seeing video
footage of a 6-year-old girl being patted down by a TSA official as her mother protested, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, has decided to do something about it, The Hill
He offered a bill to forbid TSA officers from conducting pat-downs on minors without parental consent.
"I am personally outraged and disgusted by yet another example of mistreatment of an innocent American at the hands of TSA," Chaffetz wrote in a letter to the agency. "This conduct is in clear violation of TSA's explicit policy not to conduct thorough pat-downs on children under the age of 13."
Chaffetz is chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security.
