Capitol Police to Issue Warrant for McKinney

Cynthia McKinney may be in an awful lot of trouble for striking that police officer early in the week. See, the Capitol Police are putting out a warrant for her arrest now. She could be facing a felony count for assaulting an officer. All because Rep. McKinney left her pin at home. McKinney has said she regrets the incident but I’m pretty sure she hasn’t apologized, because the original incident according to Lloyd Grove was:

Rep. Cynthia McKinney’s “original” statement about her run-in with a Capitol Hill officer said, “It is… a shame that while I conduct the country’s business, I have to stop and call the police to tell them that I’ve changed my hairstyle so that I’m not harassed at work.”

And those guys at Wonkette have figured out that she cannot be arrested while Congress is sitting

Oh the crazy controversies…

    I’d like to compare a before and after hairstyle picture.

    I’d like saying “don’t you know who I am?” to become a felony.
