Pilot refuses body scan...TSA refuses to let him fly

An ExpressJet pilot refused to enter a full body scanner and refused a pat down as well. He cited the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as his reasoning for the refusal. As a consequence the TSA refused to allow him to fly.

After watching the interview do you think his refusal is reasonable? I've been through a full body scanner and honestly I didn't really think it was that big of a deal, but I never thought about it in terms of the 4th amendment either.
