    The Georgia Supreme Court has disbarred former Georgia Congresswoman Denise Majette, finding she overbilled clients and misled the court about how much she was owed in fees. *** DeKalb County voters elected Majette to Congress in 2002 after she defeated then-Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney in the Democratic primary. She resigned after one term to run for the U.S. Senate and lost to Republican Johnny Isakson in the general election in 2004. In 2008, she sought office again but lost her bid to unseat state School Superintendent Kathy Cox.

    State Senate Majoriy Leader Martin M. Looney said he would have preferred to receive a different type of magazine for a Christmas present. “I wish he had sent me a New Yorker, the New Republic or the Atlantic,” Looney said when told he was the recipient of a high-capacity gun magazine. Specifically, both Looney, D-New Haven, and state Sen.

    MCKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – Police think a sophisticated gang of car burglars has set up shop in McKinney and is scoping out busy mothers. The burglars sit near daycare centers and outside parks. The thieves watch for busy mothers who may be shuttling kids inside or onto the playground — but leaving their purse in the vehicle. McKinney police Deputy Chief Scott Brewer said the scene has played out over and over again. “For our city alone the punitive loss exceeds that of $100,000, so let’s just don’t focus on the amount of offenses but the reality is this is hitting...

    An important 2008 campaign coalition for the president is not happy with his actions in Libya and it could very well cost him politically in 2012. Former Georgia Democratic Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney blasted President Barack Obama on Saturday at an ANSWER coalition meeting in Washington, D.C. for engaging the United States in a war against Libya. After returning from Libya with a group of U.S. journalists, Ms. McKinney launched a U.S. speaking tour to talk about her trip.

    While Muammar Gaddafi grows ever more desperate as he loses key military support, former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) is shamelessly serving as a propagandist for the Libyan tyrant’s regime. Venomous remarks recently made by the former six-term congresswoman on Libyan state television were deeply disturbing, to say the least. Among her many outbursts, she charged that America is spending “money on death, destruction and war.” The fact that these comments were broadcast on Libyan state television, which serves as Gaddafi’s mouthpiece, makes matters all the more reprehensible. Yet such behavior by Cynthia McKinney should come as no surprise. It...

McKinney, 54, represented an Atlanta-area district as a Democrat from 1993-2003 and 2005-07. A vigorous critic of President George W. Bush, she gave voice to a theory, widely circulated on the political fringes, that Bush knew in advance of the Sept. 11 attacks but allowed them to happen because they would prove profitable to the global investment firm his father was associated with.

McKinney openly espoused these theories at an Aug. 14 Houston event, in which she was honored as “the most courageous ally of justice and humanity,” and a “hero of the Palestinian cause.” McKinney met lit-tle challenge to her theories from the largely like-minded, and tightly policed, audience of 100 people.

    Spies. They're "probably" in the room, she says ominously. Listening. Conspiring. Taking it all down. Cynthia McKinney thinks we're being watched, and she says so, leaning into the mike. The crowd of several hundred in this Atlanta public library auditorium -- graying Black Panthers gathered for a reunion, a pamphleteering Revolutionary Communist Party guy, Pan-African liberationists -- mostly nods in agreement. ........ She believes there are "credible reports" that the U.S. military dumped 5,000 prisoners -- each with "a single bullet wound to the head" -- in Louisiana swamps using Hurricane Katrina as cover. She believes that Jeb Bush --...

    Although it might sound like a press release from the paranoid, prison-obsessed Center for Constitutional Rights, the Green Party's under-medicated presidential candidate is accusing the U.S. Department of Defense of executing 5,000 prisoners Chinese-style and dumping their bodies in a Louisiana swamp. FoxNews.com reports: Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney, known for her provocative statements when she was a congresswoman from Georgia, accused the Department of Defense this week of using Hurricane Katrina to cover up the slaughter of 5,000 prisoners.

    Bob Barr Implodes: Two weeks ago the Libertarian nominee pulled out of a press conference Ron Paul had called with the four leading third-party candidates (Barr, Baldwin, Nader, McKinney) to highlight their common ground. Barr decided to hold a press conference of his own down the hall. He also sent Paul a snide note — transmitted to Barr's e-mail list as well — suggesting that Paul ought to replace the hapless Wayne Allyn Root as Barr's running mate. This ploy could hardly have been more ham-handed: If Barr wanted to appear generous, he should have offered Paul, obviously by far...
