In search of the Fourth Amendment.

Much has been written and said about the TSA and it's total disregard for the fourth amendment. One state rep is doing something about it. David Simpson (R- Longview) has filed HB 1938 which makes it illegal to operate a whole body scanner in the state of Texas. a wgole host of other reps have signed on as co-sponsors, including: Reps. Jose Aliseda (R-Beeville), Leo Berman (R-Tyler), Joe Deshotel (D-Beaumont), Allen Fletcher (R-Tomball), Dan Flynn (R-Vann), John V. Garza (R-San Antonio), Larry Gonzales (R-Round Rock), Ryan Guillen (D-Rio Grande City), Charlie Howard (R-Sugar Land), Bryan Hughes (R-Mineola), Jason Isaac (R-Dripping Springs), Jim Landtroop (R-Big Spring), Jodie Laubenberg (R-Rockwall), Charles Perry (R-Lubbock), Debbie Riddle (R-Houston), Senfronia Thompson (D-Houston), and James White (R-Hillister). In addition, Congressman John Carter also supports the measure.

And as proof that politics spawns strange bedfellows, the Travis County GOP, the Travis County Libertarian party and the ACLU of Texas are all three supporting the measure as well.
