TSA agent pulls down dress to expose the breasts of 17-year-old niece of Congressman during airport pat-down
(DAILY MAIL) A U.S. Congressman has instigated a federal investigation of the TSA today after his teenage niece had her breasts exposed during a security pat-down.
Representative Ralph Hall of Texas said his gran-niece, 17, was ‘badly mistreated’ when she had her dress pulled down during security screening at an airport.
The young woman was part of a group of pupils traveling from Southwest Christian School, Texas to Australia.
The Congressman wants the agent who touched his niece fired from Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta, Georgia.
In a statement to MailOnline today, the TSA said: ‘We regret that the incident of more than two years ago was one that caused embarrassment to the young lady, however, an investigation concluded that the event was accidental.’
MailOnline was awaiting a response from Mr Hall’s press office in D.C.
The senator for Georgia, Saxby Chambliss, has also contacted the TSA in his state about ‘potentially invasive screenings’
