Is Cynthia McKinney D-GA Insane?

McKinney Faces Arrest for Scuffle

Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-4th Ga.)





Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney delayed a scheduled news conference Friday morning as U.S. Capitol police reportedly made plans to seek an arrest warrant against her for striking a police officer.

McKinney's office says the news conference is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. They say that actor Danny Glover will also be present at the news conference to be held on Howard University's campus in northwest Washington.

McKinney, a Democrat, represents Atlanta suburbs that make up one of Georgia's two black-majority districts. She planned to hold a news conference with her lawyer on Friday at 11 a.m., but an aide in her office said a new time and date for the news conference were being arranged.

The six-term congresswoman is said to have hit a Capitol Police officer in the chest earlier this week when he stopped her from entering the building without going through a metal detector. McKinney said she was not wearing a lapel pin identifying her as a House member, but that she did display her Congressional identification badge.

The charges, if they are filed against her, could include felony assault on a police officer or simple assault, which is a misdemeanor. Before police can make an arrest, the U.S. Attorney's office has to approve the warrant and then notify the U.S. Justice Department because the warrant involves a sitting member of Congress.

U.S. Capitol Police said there is surveillance video of the confrontation between the officer and McKinney, but they say the video will not be released. McKinney released a statement saying she deeply regrets the incident, but was rushing to a meeting when the officer failed to recognize her. "Unfortunately, the Police Officer did not recognize me as a Member of Congress and a confrontation ensued," the statement read.

McKinney said that government security officers often fail to recognize her and treat her like a criminal suspect. Her staff members are defending her by distributing a clip of her from the new film “American Blackout.” As McKinney shows the filmmaker around the capitol grounds, a security officer fails to recognize her at first and stops her.

“That’s just typical of the type of treatment I receive. It’s typical. So, I’m not surprised and I’m not offended,” McKinney said in the film. “Okay. Thank you. Some things never change."

The incident has become the topic of much-heated debate on talk radio and for Democrats and Republicans on the Hill. Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday labeled it "a mistake, an unfortunate lack of recognition of a member of Congress." She added that the police officer was not at fault. "I would not make a big deal of this," said Pelosi, D-Calif. Ron Bonjean, spokesman for House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., responded: "How many officers would have to be punched before it becomes a big deal?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Let me get this right, Cynthia isnt wearing a distinctive Pin on her Lapel that tells Security and all the Capital Hill Police "I'm a Congresswoman", she gets "Upset" that the person who is suppose to protect HER and every member of Congress from "Intruders" (That might possibly try to cause harm to our elected leaders) entering the Halls Of Congress, for her and their protection. This Police Officer sees no Pin, doesnt recognize her, grabs her arm before she enters to make sure she is SUPPOSE to be going in there, then she HITS this Police officer with her cell phone, or whatever, and now SHE is the one claiming Descrimination against a Police Officer doing HIS job? And then to top it off she holds a Press Conference today with Danny Glover, and Harry Belefonte, (Of all people) and says "She is a victim of being in Congress while black."? So the Capital Police are suppose to recognize ALL 400-600 members of Congress ALL the time (Even without wearing their pin?) So Cynthia can assault a Capital Hill Police Officer while doing HIS job, hit him, slap him, and whatever she want's to do to him because SHE was not properly identified, HE wants to make sure SHE is who SHE is, and SHE is claiming "Racial Discrimination"? She should have been arrested on the spot! No checking with the Attorney General, just flat out arrested like anyone else would be had they tried to enter the Capital building without proper Identification! This couldnt have been a stunt for her upcomming film "American Blackout" could it? Just another election ploy? Or maybe the Capital Hill Police should never check ANYONE going into the Halls of Congress EVER again because they might be charged with Discrimination, Intimidation, or what ever defense theory those in Congress can come up with. But let some one go in there and blow themselves up, and see what the Congress would say! "You didnt do enough to protect us", (Capital Hill Police: "We tried, but you guys always claim we are in the wrong")What a DOLT! I hope they arrest her ass!
McKinney Faces Arrest For Scuffle

Lawyer: McKinney A Victim

Pelosi: Let's Not Make A Big Deal Out Of This

No Apology From McKinney Even Though She Broke The Law

Chatterbox,
I have noticed that you and I think alot alike :-)
And I cant help it, but Baldwin did have it comming. He is an .......! And I just cant stand it when someone from Hollywood think's just because they are "Supposed Actors or Actresses" that they have a CLUE what's going on in our Government!
They should just stick to acting because when they open their mouth's that makes me not want to go see their pictures anymore.
And yes I do believe McKinney is psycho. This has gone from a little incedent with her and an officer trying to actually protect her to a full blown Racial Issue! This thing SHE has created is stupid! Thank's for visiting I will make sure I do the same over the weekend :-)

Hmmm, McKinney hit the officer "earlier this week" and she's just now holding a press conference on Friday ...

Why did it take her so long to speak to the press?

Why did we hear about this from second-hand news reports and not from McKinney personally?

What is she hiding?

Did she have a license to carry that cellphone?

Here's an official statement found on McKinney's website.

Washington, DC) - To the Members of the Capitol Hill Police:

"Earlier today I had an unfortunate confrontation with a Capitol Hill Police Officer. It is traditional protocol that Capitol Hill Police Officers secure 535 Members of Congress, including 100 Senators. It is the expectation of most Members of Congress that Capitol Hill Police officers know who they are. I was urgently trying to get to an important meeting on time to fulfill my obligations to my constituents. Unfortunately, the Police Officer did not recognize me as a Member of Congress and a confrontation ensued. I did not have on my Congressional pin but showed the Police Officer my Congressional ID.

I know that Capitol Hill Police are securing our safety, that of thousands of others, and I appreciate the work that they do. I deeply regret that the incident occurred. I have demonstrated my support for them in the past and I continue to support them now."


However,according to WSBT in Atlanta, here's the statement that she had originally planned to put on her site.

Statement of Cynthia McKinney Re: Repeated Harassment from Capitol Hill Police

"I have served as a Member of Congress for more than 11 years.

Throughout my tenure in Congress, I seem to evoke memory loss, especially from certain police officers who claim not to be able to recognize my face while I go to work everyday, representing the people of Georgia's 4th Congressional District.

Washington, DC and local newspapers, as well as authors of books, have carried my "working while black" stories of such encounters on Capitol Hill. In fact, the movie American Blackout candidly captures just such an encounter in one of its more humorous moments when after a two-year hiatus from Congress, a black police officer recognizes me and welcomes me back to Washington, and then just across the street, a few yards away, a white police officer approaches me to ask me what office I am with. In the film I remark, "Some things never change. That's what Tupac said."

Sadly, there are only 14 black women Members of Congress. And surely our faces are distinguishable. But why my face is continually unrecognizable can only be answered by these offending police officers. Capitol Hill Police are given face recognition instructions as a part of their official training. Capitol Hill Police are required to recognize, greet, and distinguish Members of Congress as a part of their official role and responsibilities. In fact, according to the US Capitol Police, their mission is to protect and support the Congress in meeting its Constitutional responsibilities. The US Capitol Police mission statement makes no distinction about selective application of its mission depending upon whether a Member of Congress is black, woman, or has a new hairstyle.

But, honestly, this incident is not about wearing a Congressional pin or changing my hairstyle.

It is true that I have changed my hairstyle. It is true that at the time I was not wearing my pin. But many Members of Congress aren't wearing their pins today. Just in the last hour at least 8 Members of Congress have been spotted speaking from the well of the House without their pins and even more have been seen on the Hill today not wearing their Congressional pin. How many of them were stopped by Capitol Hill Police? Do I have to contact the police every time I change my hairstyle? How do we account for the fact that when I wore my braids every day for 11 years, I still faced this problem, primarily from certain white police officers.

This morning at approximately 8:57 am, I was going to a Budget Committee meeting due to start at 9:00 am. I was rushing to my meeting when a white police officer yelled to me. He approached me, bodyblocked me, physically touching me. I used my arm to get him off of me. I told him not to touch me several times. He asked for my ID and I showed it to him. He then let me go and I proceeded to my meeting and I assume that the Police Officer resumed his duties. I have counseled with the Sergeant-at-Arms and Acting Assistant Chief Thompson several times before and counseled with them again on today's incident. I offered also to counsel with the offending police officer. I have agreed to try to remember to wear my pin and to notify Capitol Hill police every time I change my hairstyle.

My father was a police officer. After the tragedies on September 11th, recognizing the strain that we all were under, I wrote a letter to Sergeant-at-Arms Livingood reminding him that police officers were operating under great stress while working long hours. I asked that they be allowed to use their cell phones to contact their families to know that they were alright. No one else did this. But I did. I will not let this or any other incident dampen my resolve to support those whose work is vital and supports us. It is, however, a shame that while I conduct the country's business, I have to stop and call the police to tell them that I've changed my hairstyle so that I'm not harassed at work."

----
You think the reason she decided to go with the first statement is because a little birdy (her attorney) advised her it would look better if she expressed some remorse for the incident, instead of sounding like some arrogant, "how dare you not know me" bleep?

So you've contracted a case of moonbatitis? I wouldn't be surprised if they did follow you from Ian's site. They have no life, and he gets heat when he invades CrooksandLiars.com, the leftist equivalent to his site. That place is crawling with those roaches, like DailyKos.

As for the Congress(wo)man, she seems to carry a serious chip on her shoulder and it's plain arrogance and vanity to expect people to recognize you, then get bent out of shape over it because they are just doing their job. Even if it were a job requirement for Capitol Hill police to recognize by face every single congressman, a real leader would be humble and remain cool about it. It's such a not-a-big-deal. Glad she's not a Hollywood celeb who expects name and face recognition.

That's what I was thinking Word, what if it was a new Capital Police officer that day?
He doesnt know what the heck is going on, he does his job, she isnt wearing her pin for at least real quick Identification, then he gets batted upside the head with a Phone? He must have thought (IF he was new) Screw this job! If he wasnt new, he didnt recognize her, he still gets batted upside the head, and probably still say's "Screw this job", I feel sorry for the Police Officer.
No foolin what wasnt a big deal is now a full blown Racial issue.
From what I understand this happens to some (Alot) that arent wearing "Their Pin" Black AND White, and no-one has ever hit the police officer or made an issue of it.
McKinney is Insane.

Yet, what makes you more worthy, competent, and intelligent to open your mouth on issues concerning the government?

Let’s face it, if you don’t like what Baldwin is saying: cover your ears and close your eyes but he has a right and is no less competent than you to exercise that right.

I guess I am not as qualified as those in Hollywood to speak my mind, then again I am not out there making movies that hardly anyone is standing inline to see. The low turn outs at the box office proves people just dont like Hollywood saying crap about the Country and they are tired of it.

Don't worry about it Marie. I've been having a pretty heated discussion over at The Daily Brief so it's possible that I brought them to you.

As for Cynthia "I don't get no respect" McKinney, Michelle Malkin is reporting that "crazy Cynthia McKinney will be holding some sort of press conference this morning because she has "something new" to say about her altercation with a Capitol Hill police officer last week."

And Stefan I must admit I am jealous. I thought I was the only conservative that you took pleasure in bashing.

My advice to Cynthia McKinney... be careful what cards you play - it might just be a losing hand...

While McKinney and gang was continuing to spout her racial profiling excuse, some interesting news came to light.

It seems the upstanding Representative from Georgia has admitted that she used funds that members of Congress are supposed to use only for office supplies to fly singer Isaac Hayes to Georgia to help dedicate her new office in Atlanta.

To quote McKinney, "Some things never change"."
