Ever wonder why it is so difficult to convince your Senators and Representatives to support abolishing the Transportation Security Agency (TSA)? After all, they fly regularly so they must understand that the TSA harasses and humiliates American airline passengers in the name of "security theater" right? Well maybe not.
As part of the TSA's "whitelist" program, members of Congress and other government officials can obtain special exemptions from the TSA screening. The program is open to the general public but we must go through an application process and be fingerprinted to obtain the "privilege" of boarding an airline without being nuked or groped.
