On Monday, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., was detained by airport security in Nashville for refusing to take a pat-down by Transportation Security Agency officials. Maybe Idaho state Rep. Vito Barbieri, R-Dalton Gardens, sympathizes with the U.S. senator because he is readying a bill that would outlaw unwanted TSA searches within the Gem State’s borders. In an interview with IdahoReporter.com, Barbieri said the pat-downs do little to improve airline security and are more for show than anything else. “I’m just adding that federal TSA personnel cannot touch a person that does not want to be touched,” Barbieri said. “And if they do, without consent, they are subject to the state battery law”/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter.

Question: Do you agree with Barbieri that TSA patdowns aren't needed in Idaho?
