TSA remains on alert for threats from Al-Grandma

By now you’ve heard about Lenore Zimmerman, the 85-year-old woman who says a TSA agent strip-searched her at JFK last week. Which seems like a sadly appropriate location, given Kennedy’s proclivities.

Well, it doesn’t stop there. CBS New York:

From her home in Sunrise, Florida, 88-year-old Ruth Sherman says she knows for a fact senior citizens are being violated at a screening checkpoint at JFK…

Sherman says week-long Thanksgiving holiday with family in New York ended with an ordeal that started when the screeners wanted to check the bulge from Sherman’s colostomy bag.

“This is private for me. It’s bad enough that I have it,” she said. “I had to pull from my sweatpants and I had to pull my underwear, my underwear down.”

“You don’t do that to anybody,” she added. “I felt like I was invaded.”

Is Al-Qaeda recruiting nice old Jewish ladies now? WTF, TSA?
