TSA Detains Sen. Rand Paul

I'm betting he was carrying a gun.

UPDATE: Local media reports that Sen. Paul was detained for refusing to submit to a full-body pat-down.

UPDATE II: The TSA says Rand Paul is lying.
Sen. Rand Paul's chief of staff Doug Stafford responded to the TSA's claim that the senator was "not detained at any point." "Well, I don't know what bureaucrat manuals call it, but: an innocent American citizen who was offering to cooperate while also attempting to stop an invasive search was not allowed to proceed without complying," Stafford said in an email to TheDC.
In other words, the entire "incident" was staged in order to give Daddy some talking points in tonight's debate.
