Alec Poitevint wants Mark Taylor and Cathy Cox to withdraw support from Cynthia McKinney. This is, after all, Cynthia’s fifth run in with Capitol Hill police and she is now attacking the police officer for stopping her.
According to a GOP Press release, beyond these five incidents, there are other reasons to seek distance between Georgia Democrats and Cynthia. From the release:
Outside of these five incidents, McKinney’s other displays of outlandish behavior have been an embarrassment to the vast majority of Georgians. Other examples of McKinney’s embarrassing behavior include:
- Accusing President Bush of having prior knowledge of the 9-11 attacks and doing nothing to stop them.
- Joining only three other members of Congress to vote in favor of immediate withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq (HR 571).
- Co-sponsoring HR 635 seeking the impeachment of President Bush.
- Supporting the Communist regime in Castro’s Cuba.
The Cathy Cox household has given thousands of dollars in support of Cynthia McKinney.
And Cathy Cox, as chair of the Georgia Election Board, let McKinney off with a slap on the wrist after it was found that she seriously violated election laws at a DeKalb County polling precinct on Election Day in 2000.
Mark Taylor has proudly touted his endorsement from Cynthia McKinney in his pandering for Primary votes.
My question is actually simpler. At what point does Cynthia become more of a liability than an asset for Georgia Democrats?
