Secret Service suggests GOP operative behind town hall removal

A government official suggested Wednesday that three people who arrived at President Bush’s town hall meeting here last week were removed by a Republican operative they mistook for a Secret Service agent.
“It was somebody from the host committee,” Secret Service spokesman Tom Mazur said. A spokeswoman for the Colorado GOP said the Colorado Republican Party was not involved. White House spokesman Allen Abney said it was a volunteer, not a paid White House staffer, who removed the three people.
The man’s name was not released.
