    McKinney Loses Runoff for Georgia Seat

    Associated Press Writer

    DECATUR, Ga. (AP) -- Cynthia McKinney, the fiery Georgia congresswoman known for her conspiracy theories about the Sept. 11 attacks and the scuffle she had earlier this year with a U.S. Capitol police officer, lost a runoff election Tuesday for her district's Democratic nomination.

    Attorney Hank Johnson, a former county commissioner, won the nomination with 59 percent of the vote, surpassing McKinney by more than 11,000 votes.

    McKinney, her state's first black congresswoman, has long been controversial. Her suggestion that the Bush administration had advance knowledge of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks helped galvanize opposition and she lost her seat in 2002, but won it again two years ago.

    In her latest brouhaha in March, she struck a Capitol police officer who did not recognize her and tried to stop her from entering a House office building.

    A grand jury in Washington declined to indict her, but she was forced to apologize before the House. She drew less than 50 percent of the vote in last month's primary.

  2. Well.. good and bad.

    Good : There is hope for the Republic.

    Bad : What a shame.. She would be an easy target for the GOP to tackle.

  3. She should have lost her position after that scene she caused at the Capitol

  4. I agree with the capital incident. That just pissed me off to no end that she got away freely with that but it seemed to be a trend when the LA thing happened and they believed a member of congress should have freedom of being searched...But that's another thread.

  5. Glad. She brought it upon herself.
