    except that the "cops" are really security guards and it's possible no one called them.

    •  From Jane Kleeb--clarifying cops and other issues (7+ / 0-)

      Hi guys--first i have no problem with a reporter who discloses I am married to Scott.  BUT, if anyone tries and uses that as a discredit to the work, that is silly.  

      I worked on healthcare, education and politics before I met Scott and have continued as such.  I do have a career.

      We had 3 cops come--Omaha police, Nebraska Medical officers and the Sheriffs department.

      The Nebraska Medical officers told us the Johanns' staff called them and said we were protesters and that we needed to leave the premises.  We would not just assume that.

      But really, thats not the big issue.

      The issue is Senator Johanns saw this and did not stop to see if there was anything he could do and did not stop to talk to voters who were there to greet him about healthcare.

      That was the thing that bothered us the most.

        From the photographs that wasn't discernable. The only authority figures present appear to he the security for the facility.

        A bit better documentation would have removed all doubt.
