From the Huffington Post, July 12:
Some opponents of the bill reportedly had items such as feminine hygiene products confiscated by state troopers while attempting to enter the state Senate gallery. While these items may have been innocuous, the Department of Public Safety later reported that it had found one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected to contain feces, and three bottles suspected to contain paint during their searches. Abortion rights protesters later questioned these reports.
But there’s more, from CNN’s Josh Rubin…
DPS is no longer confiscating unopened tampons or other the like. Say the issue was earlier some were trying to bring USED ones in. #txlege
