    I don't know about the legislation he's introduced, but it's well known that both Pauls are hyper civil-libertarians. So this doesn't surprise me, and I doubt he's being hypocritical.

    Well, to be fair, the pat-down he was supposed to get wasn't random.

    Kentucky Senator Rand Paul (R) Detained by TSA.

    I do not usually agree with the man but I am 100% with him on several things including this. I hope he gets his point across with this little stunt:

    Rand Paul in TSA showdown after refusing pat down - Political Hotsheet - CBS News
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Hopefully this gets his name added to the No Fly List. It would be what he deserves for declining to complete the security procedure. The TSA and local LEO's did exactly what they should have. Nice to see a politician NOT get preferential treatment for once.

    No, he should only be embarassed if he ignorantly claimed they he refused to allow someone to "fondle" him showing his utter lack of understanding of what the word means or showing him to be pathetically hyperbolic.

    You obviously don't know what Rand Paul is about:

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    the TSA will be the first to admit they did not detain him, which is semantics of course.
