The Secret Service is investigating whether a man who removed three people from a President Bush town hall event last month broke the law by impersonating one of its agents.

Attorney Dan Recht says the Secret Service asked to interview his clients as part of the criminal investigation but he declined. The Secret Service isn't commenting.

Recht says the three were singled out because of a "No More Blood for Oil" bumper sticker on their car.

Alex Young, Karen Bauer, and Leslie Weise were told to leave the March 21st event by a man dressed in dark suit and who was wearing an earpiece. The man allegedly threatened the three with arrest if they did not cooperate. ident.

The Secret Service has said the first investigation determined the man who escorted them out was a staff member with the host committee.
