Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura is suing the TSA and Homeland Security for humiliating and ‘offensive’ pat-down procedures he’s been subjected to during airport security checks that included ‘warrantless, non-suspicion-based offensive touching, gripping and rubbing of the genital and other sensitive areas of his body.’ Ventura, who had a hip replacement procedure in 2008, says he was unduly targeted due to his disability. His lawsuit, filed yesterday in Minnesota, claims the pat-downs violated his privacy, his 4th Amendment right and legally meet ‘the definition for an unlawful sexual assault’.”IANL, but I'd think that suing under the Americans With Disabilities Act would score extra irony points. I mean, all Right Thinking People agree with the ADA, right?* And all Right Thinking People support the Progressive Lightbringer's Homeland Security Philosopher Kings, right?
Can we all just agree that this is the definitive disproof to Progressive's charming notion that if we just vote in The Right People, all will be for the best in the best of all possible worlds? I keep saying that Progressives should be heavily invested in good governance. Please show us some, folks. A good start would be for the Left to start screaming for Janet Napolitano's head on a pike (violent metaphor alert! Note to the irony-challenged: metaphorically speaking, of course).
* Actually, they do, or should, at least for most of it.
