Angry Congressman: "The TSA Hurt My Privates!" - VideoSubmitted by emalvini on Thu, 04/26/2012 - 13:15
SAN ANTONIO – An airport pat-down was met with a furious smackdown when a security screener touched a US congressman's private parts.
Freshman Rep. Francisco Canseco (R-Texas) said the San Antonio Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officer handled that sensitive moment of the screening process roughly, causing him pain.
"He touched me in my private parts and it hurt," the lawmaker said, adding that he batted the officer's hand away -- causing a hostile standoff in which police were summoned and both men demanded the other be arrested on assault charges, FOX News Channel reported Wednesday.
Father-of-three Canseco said, "It's embarrassing to say that, but that's true. I was going through the body scanner, the agent stopped me there and said, 'I'm going to pat you down.'
"I said fine. I lifted my arms up, he starts on my leg, and as he's starting up on my leg he goes up very aggressively, and he hurt me. The natural reaction is to move aside."
The 62-year-old told Politico, "As I moved his hand away, he claims, 'I've been assaulted, I've been assaulted.'"
