Last week, footage of Transportation Security Administration officials at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport trying to pat down a three-year-old girl in a wheelchair went viral -- and brought national attention to TSA in St. Louis. Nathan Forck, the father trying to get his family to Disney World, told Daily RFT that he just wanted to expose the TSA and their violations.

In honor of the national media Lambert TSA is receiving, we decided to collect the top TSA groping scandals and airport security fights in recent years. How does the Missouri scandal compare to others across the country? Check out the videos below.

9. 85-Year-Old Grandma Strip-Searched A Long Island, New York grandmother alleged that she was forced to undergo a humiliating strip search, simply because of a concern relating to her defibrillator.
