ACLU Plans Suit Over Removal Of People From Bush Appearance

Denver (AP) The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado says it'll file a lawsuit on behalf of two people removed from an event where President Bush was making an appearance. The lawsuit says Leslie Weise and Alex Young were forced out of the meeting due to what the A.C.L.U. calls, "a White House policy prohibiting people from attending this public event if they held a viewpoint other than that of the President."

Weise, You and another woman drove to the March event in a car with a bumper sticker reading, "no more blood for oil." They were also wearing t–shirts under their clothes reading "stop the lies," but said they did not plan to reveal them.

Karen Bauer was also asked to leave the event at the Wings Overthe Rockies Museum, but it's not clear whether she plans legal action.
