Mom: TSA Treated My 4-year-old Like a Terrorist
Montana lawmaker is furious after the four year old daughter of one of his constituents was labeled a "high security threat" when the child hugged her grandmother at a security checkpoint at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.
Michelle Brademeyer, of Missoula, Mon., wrote about the incident on her Facebook page alleging TSA officers called for backup after her daughter would not stop crying and at one point was ordered to spread her legs.
Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT) told Fox News that he is outraged over the four-year-old's treatment.
"Something is clearly very wrong if TSA's protocol forced them to harass a four-year-old girl until she cried," Rehberg said. "I intend to sit down with the TSA immediately and demand some answers."
