McKinney apologizes

AP: McKinney Apologizes for Incident With Cop

Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., expressed “sincere regret” Thursday for her altercation with a Capitol police officer, and offered an apology to the House.

“There should not have been any physical contact in this incident,” McKinney said in brief remarks on the House floor. “I am sorry that this misunderstanding happened at all and I regret its escalation and I apologize.”
McKinney’s comments came after the case had been referred to a federal grand jury for possible prosecution.

She had previously insisted she had done nothing wrong, and accused police of “racial profiling.” She is African-American and the police officer is white.

    Holy Crap! Wonder which black leader finally sat her ass down and told her that the Black Caucus wasn’t going to back her up in this matter?

    Sat her down? Are you kidding, the Dem Caucus just decided to hire an actor in disguise (sp?) to make the speech. That wasn’t even really her probably.

    Of course, who knows … I think she changed her hair once again. Oh well, all they had to do was make sure the look-alike was wearing the lapel pin, although, perhaps it would have been more “in character” if she didn’t.

    Where did the challenge of making fun of rediculous members/candidates go?
