Ken Salazar Joins The Fray
Senator Ken Salazar has joined the debate on the eviction of three people from a President Bush "town hall" meeting regarding social security. According to The Associated Press:

Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., has asked a Treasury Department official and a Denver prosecutor to investigate the removal of three Denver residents from President Bush's town hall meeting on Social Security last month. Salazar is the latest member of Congress to request an investigation into the matter....

...In a letter Tuesday to Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey and Dennis Schindel of the Office of Inspector General of the Treasury Department, which oversees the Secret Service, Salazar said he was troubled by allegations that the residents may have been removed by someone posing as a Secret Service agent. Morrissey replied in a letter Wednesday that a federal agency should handle any investigation. While Colorado law prohibits impersonation of a peace officer, it does not cover officers of federal agencies, he wrote.

It will be interesting to see if anybody actually does investigate this and other reported sketchy "town hall" events

3. It's about freakin' time...
I voted for that joker and he's been mostly a disappointment ever since. I thought it was great that a Democrat could actually win in the 2004 elections but my bubble was burst when he introduced Alberto The Torturer for Atty General just because they're both hispanic.

4. a few notes
630 AM ran a story about this this morning (8am). I don't know if it is the same 630 in denver as it is up here in greeley, but it played up here. The host interviewed two people from up here, one of whom was kicked out of bush's campaign rally along with myself last fall, and the head of college republicans. I believe he also interviewed one of the recent protesters

The host (whose name escapes me), is a conservative, but came out pretty strongly supporting the dems in this matter. I think this is another sign of how many conservatives are turning against Bush and the neo-cons, and we need to use these divisions to our advantage however possible.
