An anonymous reader writes "The controversial TSA backscatter X-ray machines are being sent to prisons. According to Federal times, "The controversial airport screening machines that angered privacy advocates and members of Congress for its revealing images are finding new homes in state and local prisons across the country, according to the Transportation Security Administration."

154 backscatter X-rays have already ended up in Iowa, Louisiana, and Virginia prisons. TSA is working to find homes for the remaining machines. Per the article:

"'TSA and the vendor are working with other government agencies interested in receiving the units for their security mission needs and for use in a different environment,' TSA spokesman Ross Feinstein said.""
