Jesse Ventura May Not Have Time To Bleed, But, Plenty Of Time To Sue DHS

Ventura may a massive 9/11 Truther, and, surprisingly, that wacko viewpoint doesn’t enter in his lawsuit, but, he does have a good darned point

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura sued the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration on Monday, alleging full-body scans and pat-downs at airport checkpoints violate his right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures.

Ventura is asking a federal judge in Minnesota to issue an injunction ordering officials to stop subjecting him to “warrantless and suspicionless” scans and body searches.

The lawsuit, which also names Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and TSA Administrator John Pistole as defendants, 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 for his personal health and well-being.”

The lawsuit is based on the fact that Jesse has a titanium implant from hip surgery in 2008, so, now he sets off the metal detectors, meaning he either needs to go through the body scanner or get enjoy a groping session in full view of everyone else in the security section of the terminal. And he has a darned good point. It must shock Janet Incompatano that some people actually have a problem with this.

I’ve mentioned before that I have the same issue, since I have a stainless steel bar in my right leg. Instead of simply focusing on the area where the hand wand makes a beeping noise, they pat me down in full. You know, because this 5’8″ WASP fits the Islamic jihadi profile.
