Wrongly Arrested Bush Protesters Talk About Their $80K Government Settlement On Hardball


On July 4th, 2004, Jeffery and Nicole Rank attended an public Independence Day event in Charleston, WV where President Bush was to speak. Despite the fact that the event was open to the public and was held on public land, the Ranks were arrested for wearing anti-Bush t-shirts. On Monday's "Hardball" the couple told their astonishing story of being arrested, the charges that were filed against them and eventually dropped and why they decided to sue the United States government -- a suit they thankfully won.

The Ranks were very brave to stand up to the Bush administration and they fought for all Americans and our right to free speech. We owe them thanks...
