I’ll spend whatever it takes to keep my donor’s bottom line safe.

My name is Gil Fulbright, honest politician, and I’m only in this thing for the money. I’m running for Kentucky Senate against Mitch McConnell and Alison Lundergan Grimes to bring a little honesty to the most expensive Senate race in the history of the United States.

A ticketed passenger, who was apparently also drunk, posed as a TSA worker, patting down women at San Fransisco International Airport.

The man, who was wearing khaki pants and a blue polo, may have swiped plastic blue gloves to look the part.

According to authorities, the man returned to the passenger screening area and convinced a passenger who was already screened to go to a private booth. What happened inside isn’t exactly clear, because she disappeared to catch her flight.

Real TSA agents became suspicious of the man when he was seen ushering another woman into the private screening area, because men are only allowed to screen women in the booths if a female agent is present.

So drunken behavior by a fellow employee is not considered suspicious.

The 53-year-old man was detained until police arrived. He faces a public drunkenness charge, but could face additional charges.
