NewsBusters reports Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney appeared on CBS, CNN, and FNC on Wednesday morning to address charges she hit a Capitol Police officer in the chest with her cell phone when he tried to stop her as she tried to walk right past security screeners. Well, actually, she refused in all three interviews to address the basic facts of the fracas. In all three interviews, she forced in her talking points, that the kerfuffle was "much ado about a hairdo"
If you changed your hairdo, making it less likely they would recognize you, then you had even more reason to wear the pin you are required to wear, to identify yourself as a member of Congress. Either that, or go through security, like everyone else.and that 250 black officers sued the Capitol Police for racial discrimination.
What does that have to do with whether or not you were wearing your pin, and why you hit a police officer?
