The Transporation Security Administration has received a lot of negative attention lately surrounding security procedures, including full body scans and pat downs.
Now a state representative is speaking out strongly against those measures here in Arizona, but she came a long way to a make a point.
A coffee shop in Tempe hosted an event ot talk about TSA procedures on Saturday. It's a topic that has people fired up, especially after the now infamous breast grabbing incident from a Colorado woman at Sky Harbor airport.
"To be considered a terrorist is really an insult and it's really humiliating..it's a humiliation..it was a horrifying thing," said Alaska State Rep. Sharon Cissna.
Cissna has gone so far as to travel free from the TSA's grasp. All the way from the frosty north country to Texas to highlight her own uncomfortable experience at a Seattle airport.
She's stopping along the way in small settings, but she's received a big response.
