The TSA has been reported to have detained US senator Rand Paul from Kentucky, the son of the current presidential candidate Ron Paul.
Rand Paul was detained after refusing a full body pat down at the Nashville airport. The scanner found an anomaly and the TSA said they required him to submit to a pat down. He has been notoriously against the pat downs.
I guess the extra pat down is better than missing a gun in the screening process.
I wonder if this will have broader implications.
