The Deseret News (of Salt Lake City) reported Tuesday that the TSA is refusing to quickly release video of a reported squabble between Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz and TSA officers at Salt Lake City International Airport.
The conflict arose over use of the “millimeter wave” devices that can detect high-density materials close to the skin. Chaffetz has been a vocal critic of the devices, saying they invade passengers’ privacy.
The Deseret News reported that the TSA denied its request for "expedited treatment" to release that video and any written reports of the incident.

Chaffetz, a Republican, claims he was harassed at the airport in the September incident because of his stance against the devices.
