The former Governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, is suing the Department of Homeland Security. Ventura claims TSA’s full-body scans and airport pat-downs have violated his privacy rights.
The former Governor filed the suit Monday in District Court and KSTP news, a local news agency reported the event. The complaint alleges Ventura was subjected to “warrantless rubbing of the genitals” when a TSA agent conducted a pat-down search in November at a Minneapolis Airport.
The lawsuit argues the searches are “unwarranted and unreasonable intrusions on Governor Ventura’s personal privacy and dignity, and are a justifiable cause for him to be concerned.”
