TSA Agent Interrogated A Man For Not Having His Passport Because He Was From The District of Columbia!

Oh you're from the District of Columbia, huh? So, you must be some sort of drug lord, eh? EH?

As most of us who have seen a map of the United States before, our fair country is made up of 50 states and the District of Columbia, our nation's capitol.

Channel 9's Justin Gray was traveling from Orlando to D.C. when he was stopped by a TSA agent who said his D.C. driver's license wasn't valid identification.

Sorry, Washington D.C.! Even if you live in the White House, this TSA agent ain't buying it!

After it became clear that the TSA agent had no clue where the District of Columbia was, he then asked Justin for his passport because he didn't recognize the license.

Of course, because the foreign District of Columbia requires a passport into America!

In a following convo, Justin became aware of the agent's ignorance of what the District of Columbia is, and then Justin told a supervisor after passing though security.

Meanwhile, afterwards a TSA spokesperson contacted him mere minutes after Justin tweeted about the problem to confirm, yes, in fact, a District of Columbia license is an acceptable form of identification:

"Officers are trained to identify fraudulent documents, which can potentially deter and detect individuals attempting to circumvent this layer of security."

Yeah, something tells us that the TSA agent in question wasn't try to ID a fraudulent document, he probably just thought that the District of Columbia was some sort of new South American country.

Meanwhile, this TSA spokesperson also mentioned that agents are now being shown copies of D.C.'s driver's licenses.

Jeez, what is this a high school exam?!

    Sorry to hear about this, sounds like they are still hiring people with low level education. I got the patdown in May, no reason given and I was doing wheelchair assist so I told the agent I could only stand for 5 minutes max.
