Following an invasive TSA patdown at Minnesota's St. Paul airport in November, Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura has filed a 12-page lawsuit against TSA, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and TSA Administrator John Pistole.
He accuses the TSA of violating his Fourth Amendment right to be free from unlawful searches and seizures after his titanium hip set off alarms, resulting in an uncomfortable patdown.
The lawsuit claims the patdown "exposed him to humiliation and degradation through unwanted touching, gripping and rubbing of the intimate areas of his body."
His lawyer says the patdown met the definition for an unlawful sexual assault.
