SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - There's a swimsuit protest of sorts that's been going on at the Salt Lake City airport.
It's in response to the new screening procedures at the nation's airports.
Yesterday, a college student posted a video on the Internet in which he strips down to a Speedo bathing suit to protest security measures at the airport.
In the video, a Transportation Security Administration agent tries to get the student to put on his clothes but the student refuses. After a brief exchange, agents finally give up and let the man remain in his briefs.
Now, an airport official reports another Speedo protest is taking place today.
An airport spokeswoman says a man in a swim suit, boots and cap
has been walking around a terminal and has even spent time outside
in frigid temperatures.
She says "He's being allowed to exercise his freedom of speech."
The TSA see no reason to take action. According to a TSA spokesman, "He's not a security threat."
