WV ACLU Holds News Conference: Reporter Arrested for Asking Question

Updated 27 weeks ago Edited by Tony Rutherford from Multiple Reports

 

Daniel Heyman, 54, of Charleston, a representative of Public News Service, has been arrested for 'willful disruption of government processes"  after attempting to gain access  through a  state capitol corridor protected by U. S. Secret Service to the news conference with Price and Kellyanne Conway , a counselor for President Donald Trump.

However, a tweet from ACLU of WV differs.

According to a tweet  , Heyman standing in a public space at the WV Capitol  attempted to ask Secretary Price a question about preexisting conditions. The secretary did not answer.

Heyman told an online site, "First time I’ve ever been arrested for asking a question. First time I’ve ever heard of someone getting arrested for asking a question,” he said.

“It’s dreadful. This is my job, this is what I’m supposed to do. I’m supposed to find out if someone is going to be affected by this healthcare law…I think it is a question that deserves to be answered,” he added.
