McKinney Files for Re-Election. Hank Johnson Says She Has Failed to Deliver.

by @ 4:43 pm. Filed under Nuts on Parade

Cynthia McKinney had no comment about her recent statements regarding Coz Carson, as she filed for re-election at the Georgia state Capitol today. Yes believe it or not, instead of leaving in shame she’s actually running again and still running her mouth as well.

Rep. McKinney Mum on Controversy

McKinney, surrounded by reporters, photographers, and Carson, arrived at the state Capitol on Monday to file paperwork to qualify for her upcoming re-election campaign. Both she and her primary challenger wanted to talk only about what would happen in the district they represent in DeKalb County.

“I appreciate the support of the people of the 4th Congressional District because they know I told the truth about September 11th, they know I told the truth about George Bush’s war, and can you imagine that now, in this election season, we’re talking about a nuclear strike on a country?” McKinney said with Carson by her side.

McKinney declined to talk about the Capitol Hill episode or the taped comments she made about Carson. She said her campaign will be about bringing jobs to the 4th District.

McKinney’s challenger, Hank Johnson, charged that McKinney has failed to deliver for her district because she cannot maintain good relationships in Washington, D.C.

“First off, you have to have a good relationship with your party leadership and then you need to have good relationships with your colleagues in the House on both sides of the aisle. I plan on doing both of those things,” Johnson said.

As McKinney is walks around with Mr. Carson by her side. Given her previous statements, I wonder if she is saying to herself “I can’t believe I’ve got to parade this fool around now” 😀 ?

Will the people of Georgia’s 4th District do the right thing and vote McKinney out in the Primary? Probably so. The bottom line is this, her challenger Hank Johnson is a Black Democrat. That is what is required to beat her in that district. Because unfortunately they have proven that’s all they are willing to vote for. They vote based on skin tone and party. I can be so critical because I once lived there. (In GA’s 4th Congressional district.) I fell for it all once upon a time myself, so I know what I’m talking about in this regard.

    I live in the 4th District and I think I’ll be stuck with McKinney for another 2 years. She isn’t effective, she isn’t all that bright but she is just a little bit smarter than her supporters who will come out strong for their favorite activist.

    McKinney is more of an activist (a self serving one at that) rather than politican and whether you support her or not, sending back to Congress makes no sense at all.

    Hank Johnson, if You Want to Beat Cynthia McKinney, Get Off the TV and into the Streets!

    I’ve mentioned Hank Johnson and his efforts to defeat Cynthia McKinney in the Democratic Primary next Tuesday in Georgia’s 4th US Congressional district. I think he’s got the best chance to beat her and I hope he does. However I t…
