"FORMER CONGRESSWOMAN MCKINNEY LAUNCHES PRESIDENTIAL
BID ON GREEN PARTY TICKET"
"(Taylor Media Services) - Cynthia McKinney, the
outspoken and often controversial former member of the
U. S. Congress, wants to be the next president of the
United States. Running on the left-leaning Green party
ticket, she has been traversing the country in recent
weeks lashing into both Democrats and republicans.
During a recent gathering in Madison, Wisconsin, she
told those gathered "the Republicans started an
illegal war and stole the 2004 election by
disenfrnnchising Black voters. The democrats abdicated
their obligation to vote against the war and impeach
President bush." She added, "We must take control of
our country and our government."
the forner Georgia democrat was voted out of office in
2006 after angering conservatives, liberals, and Jews,
with some of her outspoken positions including her
opposition to Israeli treatment of palestinians and
suggestions that the White house may have actually
been responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Thus
far, Mckinney is speaking before relatively small
crowds and her campaign is getting virtually no
coverage from the mainstream which she says is "just
as corrupt as the rest of the rotten system that is
destroying our country." "
Note: McKinney is actually only a candidate for the
Green Party US nomination. the actual candidate
selection does not occur till this coming summer.
