Video: Was this woman 'groped' by TSA agent?

AOL Travel

A woman has posted a video online claiming to have been inappropriately touched by an airport security officer.

Ashley Jessica, 25, from Toronto, claims the clip shows the TSA agent groping her vagina at San Diego International Airport.

She uploaded the footage to Twitter, and wrote: "Here is the video of my latest TSA 'encounter' - TSA Agent Touches my Vagina at San Diego International Airport."

Jessica, who last year led the InfoWars Opt Out & Film The TSA campaign, added: "Honestly, it is embarrassing having a vid online of me getting my lady parts groped, but ppl need to see it!"

The footage was also uploaded on Info Wars, which explains that Ashley and her mother both opted out of going though body scanners, so were told they would receive "an extensive pat down which would involve going all the way up the leg".

The agent can be seen brushing her chest, to which Ashley says "sorry, you just touched my boob". Ashley questions whether she is happy to continue, and the agent politely tells her she will not be able to clear her for travel if she does not.

The agent then runs her hand up the inside of Ashley's leg, all the way to the top, and Ashley complains: "She just touched my vagina, seriously, that was not my upper thigh."

While Ashley maintains that the pat down is unacceptable, some viewers have responded to the footage saying the agent is simply doing her job.

According to the Daily Mail, Ashley said: : "To all those people saying that I'm "overreacting" - if you went up to someone on the street and touched them like that you'd probably be arrested. It's really sad that so many people have habituated to this type of treatment."
