Airport Stripper Found Not Guilty

John Brennan, the man who stripped at Portland International Airport to protest TSA screeners, receives a hug from Amy Baker following his trial today in Portland, Ore. Brennan, of Portland, was found not guilty in his trial on charges of indecent exposure. A judge found that his nudity was an act of protected speech. Brennan says he went nude at the airport on April 17 to protest the Transportation Security Administration's security procedures. After a TSA agent at the airport detected nitrates, Brennan took of his clothes. Story here. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)

Question: Would the verdict be the same if this had happened in Idaho?
