Security Breach At Nashville Airport Involving Gore

Nashville (AP) -- Former Vice President Al Gore was involved in a security breach at Nashville International Airport.

An airline employee led Gore and two associates around security lines Wednesday before it was discovered they needed to be screened.

The employee of American Airlines took the three down to a lower baggage level and improperly swiped each of them through a secure turnstile with her security badge.

After an airport police officer noticed what happened, they were taken back and fully screened.

Gore did not complain and cooperated fully.
