Fulton GOP Chairman Bonds goes radioactive Finds he’s too hot for security TAMPA, Fla. – Fulton Republican Party Chairman Roger Bonds was almost too hot to handle when a security guard clamped him by the shoulder and said, “Come with me,� at a Republican National Committee function in Tampa, Fla., last month. “I thought it was a joke, but this guy was serious,� said Bonds, who laughs about it now.

He was one of dozens of Georgia delegates getting off the bus for a welcoming party. “As we get off the bus, this guy is BONDS scanning us with some kind of hi-tech wand,� Bonds said. “He points it at me, and said, ‘Sir, you must come with me.’ “I said I already have a

date, but then I see he’s not laughing.� The guard took him by the elbow and escorted him away from the others. That’s when one of the security agents tells him. “Sir, you’re radioactive,� he said. Now Bonds was really confused – and just a little concerned. Especially after they began to question him. One of the first questions was: Have you been around any nuclear weapons lately? No, he said. And the questions continued.

Virtual Dementia Tour

I was mad at first. It was a little embarrassing, really. But then I thought, ‘Hey these guys are really good. They knew I was radioactive even before I got off the bus. That was really high-tech.� ROGER BONDS Fulton Republican Party Chairman

When they got to question 24, Bonds brightened up. “They asked me if I had had a stress test recently, and I said yes, last Tuesday,� Bonds said. Did they inject thallium, a radioactive isotope, into him? Indeed they did. After a few more questions, he was allowed to return to the reception. “I was mad at first,� he said. “It was a little embarrassing, really. But then I thought, ‘Hey these guys are really good.’ They knew I was

radioactive even before I got off the bus. That was really hightech.� Bonds was pulled aside another time while at the RNC event for having too much of a “glow,� but another guard quickly came over and said, “He’s on the list,� and he was allowed to proceed. Bonds came away with a new respect for those in charge of anti-terrorism procedures. “It made you feel good that these guys are really on the ball. I was glad they were doing their job so well,� he said.
