Woman In Wheelchair Strips To Lingerie, Still Gets TSA Patdown

In protest of the enhanced TSA pat-down, a woman arrived at the airport this week wearing only lacy black lingerie and holding her white poodle. She had hoped that if she “had nothing to hide” then she could avoid a pat-down. She failed in this endeavor. Naturally, it was captured by a fellow passenger and uploaded to YouTube.

The woman told The Oklahoman that she felt violated after a TSA pat-down a few weeks ago and had hoped that by arriving scantly clad she could avoid another pat-down. “If it happened anywhere else, it would have been sexual assault,” she said.

No such luck. The TSA said they found traces of nitrates on her clothes and luggage and after an hour of searches and questions they told her to “come back tomorrow.”

She did, again in minimal garb, and passed through security and onto her destination without incident (she put her clothes back on after getting screened).

Remember, if you do not pass through the pat-down screening, you will not fly, even if your cute small dog has more surface area than your clothing.
