KANSAS CITY - Missouri voter Mary Kay Green has had enough.

The supporter of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama filed a lawsuit this week over what she claims is dangerous “hate speech” coming from the rival campaign of Republican presidential nominee John McCain.

Green, a 66-year-old grandmother and “semi-retired” civil rights attorney, filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Kansas City this week accusing McCain, his running mate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and their campaign manager Rick Davis of “intentionally, recklessly and irresponsibly” portraying Obama “as un-American, a terrorist by association, and ‘not like us,’ a non-white individual.”

Palin, Green alleges in her lawsuit, has at her rallies used false statements to work supporters “into a frenzy causing them to make death threats” against Obama.

"Ms. Green is the never-married mother of twin daughters Mary Kay and Elizabeth; and she is grandmother of Michael, and Ms. Phelan."

Sounds like a winner to me!! NOT.

Those wacky liberals, proud of the weirdest things!

I can understand the never-married part. No doubt conceived her kids with a kitchen implement.

LOL... I wonder how many she self-aborted.

Just heard on FNC that Secret Service has determined that the “Kill him!!” alleged reference to Ubama during a Palin rally (already documented that Palin wasn’t even in the bldg at the supposed time this happened) NEVER HAPPENED!!

They’ve reviewed videotapes and audio and FNC said they hear someone shouting “TELL HIM!!”, but not “KILL HIM!!” *anywhere* during the rally.

LOL. Facts like these won’t change liberaloonies’ minds—they keep on thinking of new ways to look stupid. Getting pretty good at it too! :-)

Mary Kay Green, JD, is an attorney who — from her senior year in law school — has handled civil rights cases. She has been licensed to practice law in Nebraska since September 13, 1977, and for most of her years, practiced family law and personal injury law as well. Ms. Green was the principal attorney in Crystal Chambers v. Omaha Girls Club et al. featured in this book. She served on the Omaha City Council from June 1977 through May 1981.
Women of Courage is about the constitutional rights of illegitimate children and their parents, about the right to give birth and raise your own children regardless of race and marital status. It was inspired by Crystal Chambers and her 1986 lawsuit against the Omaha Girls Club for pregnancy and race discrimination.
In addition to this book, Ms. Green has written a screenplay, They Let Mothers in Law School?, about her three years in law school, and is currently working on a book entitled Sundance and Cherokee Moon: A Book about Robert Redford, Movies, Miracles, and Mania. And she is writing a screenplay Crystal Chambers a New Rosa Parks.

Ms. Green is the never-married mother of twin daughters Mary Kay and Elizabeth; and she is grandmother of Michael, and Ms. Phelan. She graduated from Creighton University with a BA and from Creighton University Law School. She now resides in Kansas City, Missouri, to be near her children and grandchildren.

My first reaction in hearing that Tim Russert had died of a heart attack was:

“We will have to cancel the election.”

But sharing his Catholic belief in heaven, I can envision him up in heaven with John Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King and all the great leaders of America, cheering us all on as we elect the next President.

Like them, Tim Russert loved America, and he loved good government.

Mary Kay Green
Kansas City


She's a Catholic, fighting about the right to give birth...

and she supports 0bomba?

Seems the communist loving, socialist twit, Missouri voter Mary Kay Green thinks she is really something. Stick a sock in it liberal!

Missouri voter sues over McCain campaign “hate speech”

The supporter of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama filed a lawsuit this week over what she claims is dangerous “hate speech” coming from the rival campaign of Republican presidential nominee John McCain.

Green is seeking damages of $6 million, “and prays that they cease and desist their reprehensible campaigning.” She told Reuters that she will not drop the lawsuit unless McCain’s camp repudiates the death threats and tones down the rhetoric.

Palin, Green alleges in her lawsuit, has at her rallies used false statements to work supporters “into a frenzy causing them to make death threats” against Obama.

No death threats were made. “Off with his head” “Kill him” were made up by a reporter. The Secret Service guys didn’t hear any such threats.

She’s going to be fully retired after the court sanctions here for this frivolous and baseless lawsuit.

In her suit against Sen. John McCain, Gov. Sarah Palin and campaign manager Rick Davis, Mary Kay Green said she has been injured by their campaign tactics and suffers “terror of the heart, anxiety and grave fear” for Obama’s life.

Green, an occasional contributor of letters to the editor for The Kansas City Star on legal and political issues, said the GOP campaign has used false hate speech to work their supporters into a frenzy, leading to death threats against Obama.

In an interview, Green said she worked as a young woman in the presidential campaigns of both John and Robert Kennedy in Nebraska. She has asked for $6 million

“I will not tolerate another assassination,” Green said. “I have an obligation as an attorney to speak out and use my voice to say to John McCain and Sarah Palin that you must stop this behavior. You are participating in these death threats and have lost all protection from the First Amendment.”

In a healthy society and a rational legal environment, Mary Kay Green would be privately advised to pound sand.

Any success she might enjoy is a tribute to non-judgmentalism.

Given a personal confrontation, I would be prepared to slap her silly...

Will someone please confirm to the public that the death threats aren’t real, already!? They are taking this way too far. Trying to use fear and intimidation. OOOHH! Sorry obama, John Mccain knows his constitutional rights and I bet he has better lawyers than she does anyway!

Can we get a jury to rule before election day? The truth will out.

Sometimes it's too bad a jury can't rule that the plaintiff's attorney should be disbarred.
