TSA will fire baggage inspector over note

New York – Lawyer Jill Filipovic opened her bag in Dublin hotel room, only to find a TSA inspection card with the hand-written notation, “Get your freak on girl...”

The inspector had found a “personal item,” a small vibrator, and made note of it. Ms. Filopovic tweeted that she “died laughing in my hotel room.”

TSA brass said they will have the inspector's job for “this type of behavior” and had “reached out to the passenger to personally apologize for this unfortunate incident.”

Ms. Filopovic wrote on the Feministe blog, “I would much prefer a look at why 'security' has been used to justify so many intrusions on our civil liberties, rather than fire a person who made a mistake.”
