The TSA is getting even more invasive and up in your business.
New York writer and lawyer, Jill Filipovic, says she found more than a standard inspection slip in her luggage when she arrived in Dublin. She found a note in regards to a "personal" item (guessing vibrator) she had packed. Scribbled on the slip was "GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL".
Filipovic, a blogger for website Feministe, immediately posted about her invasion of privacy. She writes: "This is what TSA will do when they inspect a bag you checked and find a, um, "personal item". Total violation of privacy, wildly inappropriate and clearly not ok, but I also just died laughing in my hotel room."
All joking aside, Filipovic says she plans on filing an official complaint.
A TSA spokesman said the agency is 'one of several entities' that handle checked bags for hand inspections if any alarms are raised when bags are screened.
The inspection card is inserted to alert travelers if their bags have been searched. However, the spokesman said there was not yet evidence as to who wrote the note.
A statement from the agency reads: "TSA takes all allegations of inappropriate conduct seriously and is investigating this claim."
