Black Reporter Forced To Leave John McCain Rally

A black reporter for the Tallahassee Democrat was booted from a John McCain rally on Friday by a Secret Service agent, according to the AP.

His newspaper is asking the McCain campaign why he was asked to leave the backstage area when there were other state reporters in the same area. The other reporters were white.

Secret Service spokesman Eric Zahren said, “Race played absolutely no role in any actions taken by our employees or anybody else in this case.”
