Tennessee: Airport Security Stops Senator

January 24, 2012

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, the son of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul and a frequent critic of the Transportation Security Administration, was stopped by security at the Nashville airport on Monday when a scanner set off an alarm and he declined to allow a security officer to subsequently pat him down. The White House said airport security acted appropriately. Police officers escorted Mr. Paul away, but he was allowed to board a later flight. The security scanner identified an issue with the senator’s knee, although the senator said he has no screws or medical hardware around the joint. Mr. Paul said the situation reflects his longstanding concern that the T.S.A. shouldn’t be “spending so much time with people who wouldn’t attack us.”
