Get scanned, then get the pat-down!

Alaskan State Representative, Sharon Cissna, had a mastectomy, so her body scan at Sea-Tac showed an "abnormality." This meant she would have to be manually checked - of course, this custodial search would focus at and around her breast. So she did what any sane person would do: she refused, left the airport, and took a ferry back to Alaska.

Hey, airlines, is this really how you want your passengers to be treated? Even if they opt to not fly as a result?
