McCain’s “Open” Rally

“Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was in Denver, CO, this past weekend for a town hall meeting. The event, at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, was billed as ‘open to the public.’ Yet Carole Kreck, a 61-year-old librarian carrying a ‘McCain=Bush’ sign, was taken away by police [on orders from McCain’s security detail] for trespassing. A police officer told Kreck:

‘You have two choices. You can keep your sign here and receive a ticket for trespassing, or you can remove the sign and stay in line and attend this town hall meeting.’

Kreck received a ticket for trespassing and her court date is July 23.
