A woman was arrested today for refusing to allow her daughter to be photographed naked or fondled by the TSA.

I do believe we have finally reached the tipping point where the TSA has gone too far.  I am outraged, and I know you are too.  This is a national disgrace.

I started a Facebook group in support of Mrs. Abbott:

The goal is to show support and, if she ends up with legal fees (which she may not since attorneys will probably salivate over the false arrest suit) to create a defense fund.

Also, if you’d like to express your opinion on this subject to every elected official in Nashville, I’ve taken the time to make an e-mail address list for every elected official in Nashville and every legislator (+ gov) in TN. 😉 Please share your opinion on this subject with these men and women:
