McKinney watches documentary

By Mae Gentry | Tuesday, July 18, 2006, 09:40 PM

Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney was watching a documentary called “American Blackout” with about 50 of her supporters at the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Center...

She was seated next to anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan...

Update!

From the DNC's Associated Press (excerpted):

Controversial McKinney in tight race, facing possible runoff

ERRIN HAINES

Jul. 18, 2006

ATLANTA - Democratic firebrand Rep. Cynthia McKinney was in high spirits Tuesday night, dancing and playing a tambourine as election results showed her with a tight lead over a former DeKalb County Commissioner with roots in the heart of her core constitency.

With 80 percent of the precincts reporting, McKinney was leading with 47 percent of the vote to lawyer Hank Johnson's 45 percent. One of the candidates will need to get more than 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff on Aug. 8.

Tuesday's primary was the first time that McKinney faced voters since her scuffle with a Capitol Hill police officer in March.

At her campaign party, McKinney continued to flaunt her record of outspokenness on the Iraq war. She entered the auditorium with anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan...

But it might be that Ms. McKinney's celebration was a little premature.

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (excerpted):

Sheehan, McKinney, and CodePink's Media Benjamin.

McKinney, Johnson appear headed for runoff

By Travers Johnson | Tuesday, July 18, 2006, 08:58 PM

As election results poured in, U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney and Democratic challenger Henry C. “Hank” Johnson, Jr. appeared headed for a runoff in the 4th District race...

Of course a Democrat will win that gerrymandered seat anyway.

So I'm rooting for Ms. McKinney myself.

Of course McKinney is blaming Diebold.

URGENT: Diebold Electronic Machines Malfunction, Vote for Other Candidate

(Decatur) After one hour of voting, the McKinney campaign has received numerous calls that the voting machines are malfunctioning. Voters casting votes for McKinney are reportedly having their votes switched by the machines for Hank Johnson. This is not a new problem with Diebold machines. Lawyers for the campaign have been alerted and said that if this situation is not corrected, Cynthia McKinney for Congress will be forced to take additional measures.

Well, I reckon even a**holes need representation in the House of Reps. Ms. McKinney certainly fills that bill nicely.

Ms. Sheehan looks like she is gaining weight during her big fast.

Media Benjamin? Her name is "Media?" How nice for her.

It's really Susan. But she calls herself Medea (after the famous murderer of her own children, in Greek legend).

But it should be Media.

Looks like Cindy has been cheating quite a bit on her "fast". Either that, or this is only type of fast where the participants actually gain weight.

Not since Al Sharpton's protest over the Puerto Rican bombing range, have we seen such gross weight gain during a hunger strike.

One of those "between bites" hunger strikes.

Congresswoman Stephin Fetchit (D-4-GA). She really does look like a blackface singer, maybe it's the round face. *shrug*

Gosh, I hope she loses the runoff. My grandmother-in-law lives in the 4th District, and while I'd prefer she doesn't have a Rat representing her, at least the next-least-worst option would be a *sane* Rat.

The polling officials told the husband that he had already voted. The husband, irate at hearing this news, and being told that he could not vote, contacted McKinney headquarters and Team McKinney lawyers have been dispatched to the precinct.


Vote fraud alert FOR McKinney!

So, if the HUSBAND was told he had ALREADY voted, how OTHER VOTERS (for McKinney) had "already voted" (for McKinney) ... but had NOT shown up at the polls yet?

Now, now. Please tell (dear McKinney campaign) just HOW you can tell that the Diebold machines were "counting votes" FOR the other candidate ... IF THE MACHINES WERE SEALED AND NOT DISPLAYING VOTE TOTALS?

One of the local Atlanta channels reported last night McKinney's lawyers were taking depositions from people who had their votes switched for Johnson, and this was early in the evening, before McKinney even knew she didn't win.

Surely, surely, the MSM will have to acknowledge McKinney's complaints are bogus.
