TSA Tyranny's radio ads target airport scanners.

A local group, Keep Austin Free, is so concerned about airport body scanners that it's buying radio ads to fight them.

One part of the ad says, "The TSA has made plans to install full body scanners at Austin airport to gawk at our naked bodies,"

Wesley Strackbein, co-founder of Keep Austin Free, has paid thousands of dollars for radio advertising time in Austin.

"It's outrageous that we should treat the innocent as if they're equal to Al Qaeda, and that's what is taking place," he said.
