Groups Seek To Oust McKinney From Committees
CNSNEWS.com ^ | 4/23/03 | Jeff Johnson

Posted on 04/23/2002 3:13:05 AM PDT by kattracks

Capitol Hill (CNSNews.com) - A black conservative group is calling for the removal of Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga.) from the House Armed Services and International Relations Committees for allegedly having ties to terrorists or terrorist allies.

"Dick Gephardt should remove her from those committees and launch an investigation into her donors," said Kevin Martin, director of government affairs for the African-American Republican Leadership Council (AARLC).

In a statement issued Monday, the group challenged McKinney because she has allegedly "refused to disavow support of known terrorist supporters including Hezbollah and Hamas protagonist Abdurahman Alamoudi."

As CNSNews.com previously reported, McKinney received $1000 from Alamoudi, the founder and former executive director of the American Muslim Council.

"I have been labeled by the media in New York as being a supporter of Hamas. Anybody supporters of Hamas here?" Alamoudi asked, to cheers from the crowd at an October 2000 White House protest of U.S. policies in the Middle East.

"Hear that, Bill Clinton? We are all supporters of Hamas ... I wish they added that I am also a supporter of Hezbollah," he added.

Both Hezbollah and Hamas are on the State Department's official list of terrorist organizations.

Alamoudi's contribution is one of 45 McKinney received during the 1999-2000 election cycle that did not list the occupation of the donor as required by the FEC. Those donations totaled $24,000 and included contributions from other groups and individuals that have made statements considered supportive of terrorist organizations.

"Given the sensitive nature of the committees on which [McKinney] sits, the American people would be better served and rest easier at night reassured that [information from] the briefings this congresswoman might be privy to, does not end up in the wrong hands," the group's statement continued.

The AARLC is calling for a House Ethics Committee investigation into whether McKinney has "compromised her committees' assignments, is a friend of terrorists, has accepted funds from terrorists, aids and abets terrorists, committed treason in her oath to defend and protect the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic."

Martin says AARLC is also asking Rep. Eddie Bernie Johnson (D-Texas), chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, to suspend McKinney from that group.

The AARLC is the second group to formally request a congressional ethics probe into McKinney's conduct. The first was requested by the Southeastern Legal Foundation April 12. That request, made to the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct, also concerned contributions McKinney has received from alleged terrorist supporters.

SLF also sent a letter to House Democratic Leader Richard Gephardt (D-Mo.) Monday requesting McKinney's removal from the two committees that receive intelligence briefings concerning the war on terrorism.

"The factual evidence is clear: McKinney has taken money from some very dangerous people who have publicly supported terrorist organizations," said Phil Kent, president of SLF.

"Congress must not tolerate the appearance of impropriety at a time when America is engaged in the war on terrorism. The stakes are too high, and she has too much access to classified information, to take this lightly," Kent said.

The letter argues that removing McKinney from the two committees is the "prudent course of action" until an investigation can be completed.

Multiple calls to McKinney's office requesting comment on this story were not returned prior to publication.

Little Dickie Gephardt isn't going to touch this one. The ba!!le$$ Republicans aren't going to touch this one. The mass media, not even Fox, isn't going to touch this one. Rush and Sean Hannity might bring it up. This colossal jewel of glittering racist ignorance and her supporters will get out the whole deck of race cards and that will be that. She and her supporters constitute an entire islamoterrorist 5th column.

I've heard Rush on it. Unfortunately, Hannity is rebroadcast on WJR late at night and I can no longer stay awake that long. I don't believe we get Boortz in the Detroit area. I haven't been able to locate him. We have a lot of too much sports all the time AM station formats here. They will be about the only ones who will hammer that wretched excuse for a human being.

Freepers have been covering Alamoudi for several years now.

The articles are all archived .

During my searching of the USS Cole attack I made the connection that this Alamoudi is related to the Saudi Al-Amoudi, a Bin Laden funder.

The Clinton Administration had him working part time for the US State Department.

The Bush White House had him to quite a few events.

Up until a few weeks ago, Alamoudi was an acceptable Arab-American.

McKinney shouldnt be treated any differently than George Bush,they both used him.

Did he contribute to the Bush Campaign? Is Bush doing a bunch of un-American/treasonist things? I didn't think so. McKinney must be ousted!

Yes, Alamoudi did contribute to Bushs campaign.

He gave it back.

Is Bush doing "treasonous" things?

Some say yes!

You don't publicly accuse a sitting President two impeachable charges of High Treason and Ethnic Cleansing and then have no evidence to back up your public ranting to which Congresswoman McKinney has done to score political points within her party and base. Remember Freepers it is House that impeaches and the Senate that removes or at least that is the way it is suppose to be!!! The Jouse Ethics Committee must move to remove Congresswoman McKinney from The House!!!

Michael Savage said last night on his show that Cynthia McKinney appeared at the death-to-Israel, "globalize the intifada" hatefest in D.C. last weekend. Deb tells me that that's wrong, that McKinney was scheduled to appear but chickened out, only sending a taped message to be played. But even a taped message shows support.

I don't have tape. I did have C-SPAN Radio when the hatefest started, but I was only able to listen to a couple of minutes of it. I only know that Deb tells me she sent a taped message.

If it were possible to determine at what time the message was played, you can order tapes from C-SPAN for everything they broadcast.

You should also remember that she is the one who wrote a letter to the Saudi (?) prince who offered a million to NYC after 9/11 asking that he consider donating the money refused by Giuliani to "needy" people. She is a traitor and should be forced to step down from any committees she is on. I hope the people from her district remember this at poll time and REFUSE TO VOTE FOR HER.... She is an embarassment to the State of Georgia.....

Sweet Baby Jesus, That picture can't be real. She looks like one of those Fembots from the 70's. The dead eyes of a doll, with the insane look of Ahab. Jesus Christ, nobody thought to look at this woman's face and decide, is this woman sane? YOu can tell just by looking at her, she's nuts.

Slowly she turned, Step by step, inch by inch, All this woman needs is an axe to wield, and you've got the perfect lunatic.

A big "Thank You" from a Missourian. Removing the deceased Mel Carnahan from the U.S. Senate will not be an easy task.I pray Jim Talent is the man to do just that. Appreciate your help in this effort.

Sad to say to you she is in a pretty safe district because daddy help her get the seat because he is a insider down there. She has broken state campaign laws but they will not touch it because she will then scream racism.

You can get Boortz on the web at Boortz.
That's how I have to get him here in the NYC market.
