Things got ugly in Concord Tuesday after a hearing on a bill to place TSA officials who engage in random pat-downs and body scans on the state’s sexual predator registry.
WMUR reported on a visibly upset Concord resident who recounted to the Criminal Justice Committee how he recently had to cancel a visit with his mother because he did not want to submit to pat downs. The man made a point of overemphasizing the word “submit.”
After the hearing, Rep. Laura Pantelakos (D-Portsmouth) told the man that he does not need to get on an airplane if he doesn’t want to. “That is your choice,” she said.
“F—K you!” the man barked back, though the comment was bleeped out by WMUR.
