AG Cordray's Office on TSA Sexual Assault at Dayton International

I have received a response from the office of Attorney General Rich Cordray:
RE: Alleged Invasive Searches

Dear Mr. Hurley,

Thank you for contacting the Ohio Attorney General's Office regarding searches by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees.

While there have been reports of searches that some regard as invasive, such matters would be entirely under federal authority, as airline travel and security is federally controlled. The TSA has a contact form that allows you to file an online complaint and provides many different categories for response, located at

Please be advised that the Office of the Attorney General is empowered to serve as legal counsel and advisor only to state officials, state agencies, county prosecutors, and the Ohio General Assembly. Our office has no authority to intervene in the matters referred to in your letter.

Again, thank you for contacting our office. I hope you find this information helpful.

I guess the rule of law isn't something that the Attorney General's office cares about all that much...
