An article from the nation that describes the activism that is pointed against the TSA as a hit piece from libertarian leaning political action groups, such as FreedomWorks and the Koch brothers. Discussed in this article is John Tyner's TSA incident, Meg McLain's incident as well as her involvement with Liberty on Tour, as well as Free Keene.

“Would you touch my balls?”
