[A]fter two days of being vilified by bloggers, letter writers and others, the Secret Service emphatically denied involvement. "Contrary to some recent reporting, the Secret Service had no involvement in Ms. Kreck being removed from the area," said Malcolm D. Wiley Sr., spokesman for the Secret Service. "It was not done at our request or suggestion."
Turns out, the librarian was threatened with arrest at the request of "a representative of Senator John McCain's staff." The Denver policeman "was 'simply mistaken' in identifying the Secret Service as the agency that wanted her to leave."
