Representative Ralph Hall of Texas said his gran-niece, 17, was ‘badly mistreated’ when she had her dress pulled down during security screening at an airport.
The young woman was part of a group of pupils traveling from Southwest Christian School, Texas to Australia.

Snip from the WSJ:
“…through three presidential debates, the Texas congressman’s pet issue, monetary policy, has been ignored. “They don’t want to talk about it,” Mr. Paul said in an interview Tuesday.
He added sarcastically: “It’s not important enough. It’s only half of every single transaction in the world.”
You would think that even if Ron Paul the presidential candidate has failed, Ron Paul the Fed critic would be alive and well, front [...]
