TSA Denying Senator Rand Paul Was Detained; They KNOW They Were Wrong!

It was reported this morning that, on his way to Washington, DC, Senator Rand Paul was “detained” by TSA at the Nashville International Airport after the body scanner “glitched”. Senator Paul states he was refused the ability to go back through the scanner and was led to a cubicle and told to wait, never being given any sort of time frame as to how long that wait would be.

The TSA has directly violated the Constitution Article I, Section 6 states,

“The Senators and Representatives…shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same….”

It’s not enough that the strip search old women and young children are forced to be subjected to molestation; now they, along with the rest of Washington, get to trample all over our Constitution. So now, the TSA is saying Senator Rand was never “officially detained”; that’s a bunch of crap if I ever heard it. If they pull you away, to a private are, then you are DETAINED, period, end of story.

Senator Paul was allowed to board a second flight after a separate screening by TSA agents, however, it remains to be seen whether he will make it to the capital in time for today’s session.
