WaPo Cynthia McKinney, the Georgia congresswoman who had an altercation with a Capitol Police officer, said yesterday that the officer started the incident by "inappropriately touching and stopping" her after she walked past a security checkpoint.
So now she is playing the feminist card as well as the black cardMcKinney, speaking at a news conference where she was joined by singer Harry Belafonte
If she even associates herself with that nutcase, she is clearly guilty.and actor Danny Glover, said she understands that a case against her may be referred for prosecution but declared that she will be exonerated.
"Let me be clear: This whole incident was instigated by the inappropriate touching and stopping of me, a female black congresswoman,"
She is saying "I'm a black, so no white policeman has a right to stop me, because it is racism, and I am a woman, so if a man touches me, it is inapproriate touching." The fact that she was trying to get around security, and was not wearing the special button that they give Congress Critters to enable them to do that, is beside the point.McKinney said. "I deeply regret that this incident occurred."
How about saying "I deeply regret not wearing the proper security devices, hitting the policeman, accusing him of racism, and accusing him of "inappropriate touching."McKinney, a Democrat, declined to discuss the incident further because she still may be charged with striking the officer after she entered a House office building this week unrecognized and did not stop when asked. She and her two lawyers would not say whether she hit the officer or how he touched her inappropriately.
They dont want to explain how it happened, because then it would make the phrase "inappropriate touching" obviously wrong.
