    Oh geez..what a piece of work. And people elected her?

    Sad. Just sad.
    ------

    WASHINGTON – When Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., was issued an arrest warrant today for allegedly slapping a Capitol police officer, it was just the latest development in a stormy political career that saw her chased from office by scandal once – only to be sent back to the House.

    The 50-year-old representative of Georgia’s 4th congressional district held her post from 1992 through 2002, when the 10-year veteran of the House was upset in a primary election.

    The way she explained it: The "hostile corporate media," allied with Republicans, "repeated falsehoods" about her, "distorted" her positions, and drove her from "my seat."

    McKinney is, without doubt, one of the most radical members of the House Democratic Caucus – having appeared with Louis Farrakhan and promoted the reign of Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe.

    But it was a March 25, 2002, interview on KPFA Pacifica radio that may have done her in politically that year.

    "We know there were numerous warnings of the events to come on September 11," McKinney said. "What did this administration know and when did it know it, about the events of September 11? Who else knew, and why did they not warn the innocent people of New York who were needlessly murdered? What do they have to hide?"

    McKinney thought she knew the answer.

    "What is undeniable," she explained, "is that corporations close to the administration have directly benefited from the increased defense spending arising from the aftermath of September 11th."

    Try as she might to distance herself from the remarks, McKinney only succeeded in digging herself a deeper hole.

    She released a statement admitting she was "not aware of any evidence" proving "President Bush or members of his administration have personally profited from the attacks of 9/11," but "a complete investigation might reveal that to be the case."

    But it got worse.

    A list of campaign donors was found to include some with links to terrorism – Abdurahman Alamoudi, the former executive director of the American Muslim Council, and former college professor Sami Al-Arian.

    Also coming to light was her fawning Oct. 12, 2001, letter to Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal, in which she rebuked New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for his refusal to accept a post-9/11 gift of $10 million. She urged bin Talal to donate the funds to "charities outside the mayor's control," especially those that dealt with "poor blacks who sleep on the street in the shadows of our nation's Capitol."

    When McKinney won her seat back, she didn’t soft-pedal her conspiracy theories or tone down her rhetoric. In fact, she boasts of being a follower of Michael Ruppert, the former L.A. detective who insists the Bush administration actually orchestrated the Sept. 11 attacks.

    Since returning to her seat, McKinney is fond of repeating this line – borrowed from Ruppert: "The American people might have a criminal syndicate running their government."

    How God can love people like her is beyond me. She's evil, self-centered and a fucking nutjob. :(

    I guess that's why we're not God. He sees something we don't.

    Lawyer already has:

    From: http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/03/31/D8GMPKR81.html

    Her lawyer, James W. Myart Jr., said, "Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, like thousands of average Americans across this country, is, too, a victim of the excessive use of force by law enforcement officials because of how she looks and the color of her skin."

    "Ms. McKinney is just a victim of being in Congress while black," Myart said. "Congresswoman McKinney will be exonerated."

    She plays the race card EVERYTIME she gets into trouble. She even played it when she lost an election here, even though the winner was also black. She's scum. :piss2:

    She's a one trick horse, and I'd be embarrassed if I was from her district. She's a grandstanding moron.

    Remember Marion Barry, the former mayor of DC and whose slogan was "Coke is it"?

    Or, OJ Simpson, who was acquitted after 4 hours of jury deliberation, despite all the evidence?

    We live in a time when people are judged, not by the content of their character, but by the color of their skin. :soul:
