DALLAS- One of the most powerful senators in the country is taking action after watching a CBS 11 investigation. Democratic Senator Charles Schumer from New York saw our story uncovering a pattern of women complaining about the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents. Now, Senator Schumer wants to give passengers a way to complain if they feel mistreated.
Senator Schumer kicked off his news conference in New York on Sunday by referencing Ellen Terrell, the female passenger who spoke out to CBS 11 earlier this month.
“At one point the passenger was asked if she plays tennis because she of her ‘cute’ figure, “ said Schumer, who held his both hands up making quotations signs with his fingers as he said “cute.”
He described what happened to Terrell at DFW airport as it was reported word for word in our CBS 11 investigation (http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2012/02/13/cbs-11-investigation-leads-to-new-tsa-legislation/)
