McKinney fined $33K by FEC.

AP: McKinney Fined For Campaign Violations

The eight-page agreement, signed by McKinney’s campaign treasurer, Joan Christian, says there were $106,425 in excessive contributions in 2002 — $42,950 for the primary and $63,475 for the general. Because McKinney lost the primary election, all money collected for the general must be reimbursed.

The agreement says McKinney’s campaign reimbursed $34,199 of the excessive contributions but still owed $72,226 as of August 31, the date of the agreement.

Wow. That’s a big fine. What was that Bobby Kahn was saying about a “Culture of Corruption?”

    I dont want to defend Bobby but in light of Scooter and his treasonous ways and Tom Delay I dont think we should really throw around the word Ethics… of course they havent been convicted YET but do you want to take odds on that or them pleading out

    >>”””Scooter and his treasonous ways”””

    I really don’t want to get into a debate of the CIA leak, etc but that comment is a little presumptive.

    Buzz — howdaya like this guy, eh? It’s a George Anderson with class!! Keep up the good work, Buzz.

    GaWire — I agree with you there. However, I commented to someone this morning that IF Libby did something wrong, he should be penalized just like everyone else.

    Okay, I admit it. I have voted for this woman three times. I kinda like the kooks. I mean both parties need their wackos to make the rest of them seem normal, but this is absolutely over the top:

    “To provide for the expeditious disclosure of records relevant to the life and death of Tupac Amaru Shakur” — H.R. 4210, sponsored by Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA)

    Forgive me fellow Georgians, for I have sinned!!:(
