It happened to Laura Berg, a Veterans Administration nurse who showed up for work one day to find government agents waiting for her.

The American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico wants the government to apologize to a nurse for seizing her computer and investigating her for "sedition" after she criticized the Bush administration.

Her crime?

Berg, a clinical nurse specialist, wrote a letter in September to a weekly Albuquerque newspaper criticizing how the administration handled Hurricane Katrina and the Iraq War. She urged people to "act forcefully" to remove an administration she said played games of "vicious deceit."

The message is clear: If you are a government employee and you dare to criticize Dear Leader, you will be well and truly fucked.

(Wikipedia, by the way, has this to say about sedition: "The term is deprecated in most countries, though equivalent language may still be in use in totalitarian and fascist jurisdictions.")
