People Wearing NARAL T-Shirts Are Ejected From McCain Town Hall Event
RH Reality Check: McCain + Birth Control = Attention to His Position, by Marjorie Childress:
John McCain seems to be having increasing difficulty with the issue of birth control.
At his town hall here in Albuquerque Tuesday, three people wearing t-shirts with the logo of the pro-choice organization NARAL were ejected from the venue, despite having tickets. Originally reported by local media, including the New Mexico Independent, the incident got some attention in the blogosphere by Ben Smith of Politico. Smith spoke with McCain aide, Jeff Sadosky, and was told that the three were told to leave by Albuquerque police and hotel security, because they had originally been seen protesting the event.
Not so, according to Chris Salas, one of the three people ejected.
