U.S. Rep. Francisco Canseco said he was assaulted by a TSA agent at the San Antonio International Airport.
The Texas Congressman said the security agent went too far during a pat-down earlier this month.
"The agent was very aggressive in his pat-down, and he was patting me down where no one is supposed to go, said Canseco. It got very uncomfortable so I moved his hand away. That stopped everything and brought in supervisors and everyone else."
Canseco told the KENS 5 I-Team the agent said he too was assaulted when Canseco pushed his hand away.
According to TSA, neither man was cited.
A week later when going through the San Antonio International Airport, Canseco was once again selected for a pat-down.
"I did not see it as a coincidence, he said. I asked them why are you going to pat me down again, so we discussed it further and after discussing it further, they patted me down."
However, before the discussion was over San Antonio Police Department officers were called to the security check point area.
Again, no one was cited.
TSA issued the I-Team the following statement about the incident:
"TSA incorporates random and unpredictable security measures throughout the airport. Once a passenger enters the screening process, they must complete it prior to continuing to a flight or secure area."

He's lucky. The TSA monkeys at San Antonio Airport are a bunch of low-life turds.
Someone should get the tapes and see if Obama is quota racially profiling white Americans and by age.
I have not seen any of Holder’s people’s children sexually molested.
We can all play the race bait game.
Everyone needs to read this once a week. Maybe it will sink in. I dream of the day those bastards start quaking in their jackboots at the thought of attempting to molest a citizen.
The TSA should have taken him into a room stripped him, photographed him, given him an anal exam, and then said: “OK, get dressed and get back in line.”
Your digging that vote out is just another example of why F/R is the best place to get real information. Great job,
