Sen. Claire McCaskill on TSA pat-down: ‘OMG’

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) says she got the full-body treatment during a trip through the airport screeners Monday:

It's not the first time that McCaskill has complained about aggressive Transportation Security Administration methods. She also took them on at a 2011 hearing.

"When you have the traveling public tell you these pat-downs are unacceptable, they are not exaggerating,” McCaskill told TSA chief John Pistole.

McCaskill also in 2010 embraced the idea of full-body scanners as an alternative to pat-downs.

"I'm wildly excited that I can walk through a machine instead of getting my dose of love pats," she said.
