LAST WEEK I LINKED TO A STORY IN 2600 regarding a claim by a Denver man, Mike Maginnis, that he had been harassed and taken into custody for photographing Dick Cheney's hotel. The Rocky Mountain News is now reporting that the Secret Service and the Denver Police deny that it ever happened.

As my original post indicated, the story seemed a bit fishy. But -- as the post also indicated -- previous incidents gave it a degree of credibility.
