Steve Bierfeldt had a run-in with the TSA on Sunday night. He was leaving St. Louis after a weekend conference by the Campaign For Liberty (a Ron Paul group), where Steve is the Director of Development.
At Lambert Airport, he was pulled aside at the security checkpoint when an agent checked his luggage and found several thousand dollars in cash (proceeds from book sales and other items sold at the conference). That’s not against the law, but the TSA agent either didn’t know that or didn’t like Steve, who was taken to a back room and questioned by several TSA personnel. Fortunately, Steve recorded the encounter on his iPhone, and when he joined me on KTRS/St. Louis, we played that audio and he explained everything that happened. You’ll note that Steve stayed calm, while the officers got more and more upset.
