New Hampshire Considers Criminalizing TSA Scanners, Patdowns

Today the New Hampshire state legislature is considering a bill that would make using the now-standard TSA “nudie scanners” and “enhanced pat downs” constitute sexual assault, a class III felony. The bill covers any agent of any government at any level — federal, state, or local. Among other consequences for conviction, anybody convicted of sexual assault must register as a sex offender for life.

A few weeks ago, as I recall a Wired Magazine article claimed that the furor over TSA excesses was dying down. (Can’t find the link now.) It doesn’t look like the furor is dying down to me. :-)
