White House Admission, Denver Three, and Beauprez.
It sounds as if the White House may be closer to admitting that the removal of three people dubbed "The Denver Three" from a Social Security "town hall" meeting last month in Denver was indeed done by the President's advance team. Any admission would certainly help Congressman Bob Beauprez, whose office, along with Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave's office, distributed the tickets to the event. Beauprez has tried hard to distance himself from this controversy, something he surely doesn't need if he is going to be running for governor, but the White House may be doing it for him.

According to FOX News:

Even without a guaranteed audience of backers, the administration does have the right to try and prevent threats and disruptions from protesters, which is why people are often barred from Bush events, according to White House officials. The removal of individuals can occur before and after a disruption.

There is an active campaign underway to try and disrupt and disturb his events in hopes of undermining his objective of fixing Social Security, White House spokesman Trent Duffy told FOXNews.com. If there is evidence there are people planning to disrupt the president at an event, then they have the right to exclude those people from those events.

The White House later claimed the man who turned them away was a volunteer but did not identify him or his affiliation. Since the forum was considered an official event, neither the Colorado Republican Party nor its volunteers were involved, party officials said.
