An ABC News employee said she was subject to a "demeaning" search at Newark Liberty International Airport Sunday morning.
"The woman who checked me reached her hands inside my underwear and felt her way around," she said. "It was basically worse than going to the gynecologist. It was embarrassing. It was demeaning. It was inappropriate."
That's because it was an ABC News employee, right? The previous assaults, including the guy with the urine bag who had his medical device disrupted leaving him covered in*****, or the flight attendant who had to remove her prosthetic breast - those were ok?
I'll tell 'ya what. I'll agree that you "went too far" and are showing actual contrition when and only when the TSA employees who did all of the above, along with every other abuse foisted on the public thus far, are identified by name through criminal indictment and prosecuted.
