"Gov. Rick Perry, under pressure from tea party activists, on Monday added to lawmakers' to-do list a ban on airport security searches considered intrusive without probable cause to believe someone has committed an offense. The measure died in the regular legislative session in the wake of [threats] from federal officials .... The legislation would provide that federal employees, if they perform a search that involves touching a person's private parts without probable cause, commit the offense of official oppression."
