    Dozens of disabled travelers have filed complaints with Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, accusing Transportation Security Administration security agents of conducting inappropriate and humiliating screenings.

    The Arizona Republic reports that 26 complaints were filed on behalf of people with disabilities at the airport's checkpoints in 2012, which is more than double the national average, according to records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

    One of the complaints was filed by an 82-year-old woman in a wheelchair who was reportedly required to take out her prosthetic breast while passing through a TSA security checkpoint before boarding a flight to London last June.

    Actually this is a repeat of a story from about two years ago. Not that anyone would accuse Fox News of sensationalizing the news during a slow news week.

    If it makes Obama look bad, they'll report on a clogged toilet.
