If you've flown, you know that getting through airport security can sometimes be a hassle. That applies to U.S. Senators, as well, as one - the son of a Presidential candidate and outspoken critic of some TSA procedures - found out first hand on Monday.
FOX News Radio's Chris Foster has details:
Kentucky Republican Rand Paul finally made it to Washington after missing a flight in Nashville. He set off an alarm, with a scanner finding something wrong with his knee.
(Paul) "I said 'I'm happy to show you my leg,' and I showed them my leg, but that wasn't good enough. They wanted to do a pat down."
He said no.
(Paul) "I said, 'Well, I'm happy to go through the rescreen and walk through the screener again,' and they wouldn't let me. So then I was detained in an area, and told if I use my phone I got the full body pat down."
He says he didn't want special treatment, just that airport security shouldn't be spending so much time with people who wouldn't attack us.
A TSA spokesman says any irregularity in the screening process must be resolved before the passenger's allowed in a secure area.
