I didn't really want to post this, because Cynthia McKinney is the Congresswoman for my district, she's always such an embarrassment, and I didn't want to bring any more attention to our situation... well, here goes: Rep. Cynthia McKinney of Georgia struck a Capitol Hill police officer Wednesday morning after the officer, not recognizing her as a member of Congress, tried to stop her from stepping around a security checkpoint.
Unfortunately, I have to side with my Congresswoman because who doesn't know this nappy-headed loudmouth from Georgia?!? I hope she doesn't get in too much trouble because I can't believe that the security detail around the Capitol wouldn't know ALL of the Black Caucus Members, especially one as colorful as Ms. McKinney!
March 31, 2006 - BLOG UPDATE:
Rep. McKinney faces charges after security incident.
As my neighbor and DeKalb County Commissioner Hank Johnson said so eloquently:
"For years, it's the people of the 4th District who have suffered and been shortchanged because of our representative's behavior in Congress. It's why she is ineffective in Congress."
Lawd have mercy, they gonna throw my girl in the slammer!
