Her questionable PR continues - when an AJC reporter went to her mother's home to talk to her, she ran him off the property.

It's going to be an interesting day when the truth is fully revealed about 9-11...the brainwashing is wearing off rapidly. We need more leaders like Cynthia who can see through the bold-faced lie known as the official story.

She accomplished nothing in Washington. She does not understand the concept of "What goes around, comes around". I was as ashamed of having her represent Georgia in Washington as I was having Newt up there. They are just the same, just sitting on different sides of the aisle.

The Chik-Fil-A cow would make a better legislator than Cynthia McKinney.

The woman is a Narcissistic loon. I'm embarrassed that I live in the 4th district. It would not surprise me if she ran again and was elected again. We have some serious entitlement issues here. This area has changed for the worse during my lifetime. The crime rate has risen. House values and schools in our area have had a serious decline in the last 25 years. I attribute this to more and more people living in this area that think Cynthia was a good representive. I personally think the state of Ga. Would be better off without her.

Personally, while she might not get much done up there, I feel it is important to have at least one person in Congress, who will call out the liars.

If she were a man would you feel the same way?
CJM April 24, 2012 at 03:13 PM
Oh, please. Of course. This is not about gender or race, but ineffectiveness. But you knew that already.

Could she be elected in this district? Are you kidding? Unfortunately, yes. The South Dekalb voters love her. She was an embarrassment before & if elected again, will be an embarrassment again.

I would make a better legislator than CMc.....and i'm not qualified.
JG April 24, 2012 at 08:11 PM
Absolutely. No difference, someone who does not let those guys get away with their lies is important.

Really, I am a woman and she is an utter embarrassment to woman and everyone else in Georgia.
