Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) recently announced her opposition to the federal Transportation Security Administration's full-body scanners due to worries that "naked pictures" of herself could somehow end up on the internet for the world to see after being screened.
According to MinnPost, Bachamann told patrons at an Iowa coffee shop that she planned on opting out of such security procedures in order to avoid the possibility that such exposing images could end up online.
Despite assurances from the TSA that it is impossible for the screening practice to result in the revealing images being broadcast publicly, Bachmann has come up with her own alternative.
MinnPost reports that "she'd prefer U.S. airport security mimic Israeli airport security, which includes multiple face-to-face interviews with airport security and passengers and a form of profiling with extra attention paid to those whose behavior suggests they're not just at the airport to catch a flight."
As part of the her proposed $400 billion-plus worth of spending cuts, Bachmann has also suggested privatizing the TSA.
