Jill Filipovic to File Complaint Over Sex Toy TSA Note in Her Luggage

New York writer and lawyer Jill Filipovic says she found more than the standard TSA inspection slip in her luggage (with her sex toy) when she arrived in Dublin, Ireland from the U.S. on Monday.

On the TSA notice was a scribbled message reading: "GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL," which has sparked an investigation by TSA officials.

"This is what TSA will do when they inspect a bag you checked and find a, um, "personal item," Filipovic, a blogger for website Feministe, posted today in a snarky entry entitled "Your tax dollars at work."

"Total violation of privacy, wildly inappropriate and clearly not ok, but I also just died laughing in my hotel room," she wrote.

Filipovic told ABC News she had been with the bag from the time she packed until it was checked, leading her to believe a TSA agent wrote the note. But despite her light-hearted commentary, Filipovic believed the remark to be "offensive" and plans to file an official complaint.

In response, a statement from the TSA reads: "TSA takes all allegations of inappropriate conduct seriously and is investigating this claim." A spokesman said if inappropriate conduct was discovered "appropriate disciplinary action" would be taken.
