Reporter's reminder to TSA: DC is part of US

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Security workers at Orlando International Airport are being shown the District of Columbia driver's license after one agent's apparent confusion over its validity.

Cox Media Group television reporter Justin Gray was heading back to his Washington home Saturday when he says a Transportation Security Administration agent didn't recognize his license and asked for a passport, which Gray wasn't carrying.

The reporter says that after further back-and-forth, he realized the agent was not aware what the District of Columbia was.

Gray eventually made it through security and voiced his complaints to a supervisor and then the rest of the world via Twitter.

He says Washington is "a bizarre place" but a passport isn't needed. WFTV reports that all Orlando TSA agents are being shown copies of the D.C. driver's license.
