As part of an oversight hearing in which the TSA was (quite properly) criticized for a wide array of wrong steps and misguided policies, Sen. Leahy (D-VT) revealed himself as someone who appreciates the right to take photos:
Leahy, an amateur photographer, also faulted TSA workers for telling travelers they can’t photograph checkpointsâ€”including when they see a well-known senator being put through the process.
“I do provide amusement for people taking cell phone pictures of me until the TSA agent tells them thereâ€™s a law against taking photographs [of checkpoints]. Of course,Â there is no such law,” groused Leahy, who as Judiciary Committee chairman ought to know. “Maybe youâ€™ll miss your plane because they’re annoyed that you want to protect your rights.”
Keep at it, Sen. Leahy.
