The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has obtained the “event report” of Rep. Cynthia McKinney’s alleged assault on Capitol Hill police officer Paul McKenna:
The official police report on Rep. Cynthia McKinney’s clash with a Capitol Hill police officer three weeks ago says the DeKalb County congresswoman struck the officer “in his chest with (a) closed fist.”
The “event report” — obtained Tuesday by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution — describes the altercation as an assault on a police officer. The officer involved in the incident, identified as Paul McKenna, filed the report with his supervisors immediately after the incident occurred at 8:55 a.m. March 29.
The report for the first time provides specific details of what happened when McKenna tried to stop McKinney from going around a security checkpoint at a House office building.
There had previously been reports that McKinney “stabbed” the officer with a cell phone or that she slapped McKenna with an open hand.
McKinney claimed she was the victim of racial profiling and that the officer had touched her inappropriately when he tried to stop her. But under pressure from House Democrats and the Congressional Black Caucus, McKinney, a Democrat, apologized for the incident on the House floor last week.
McKinney’s office declined to comment on the report Tuesday, saying it involved a pending legal matter…
Here’s the status of legal proceedings:
U.S. Attorney Ken Wainstein turned the matter over to the grand jury two weeks ago. Chuck Canterbury, national president of the Fraternal Order of Police, said he met last week with McKenna and asked him to consider filing a lawsuit against McKinney. Canterbury also called on McKinney to apologize directly to McKenna.
Louis Farrakhan’s propaganda rag, The Final Call, features coverage of the case here.
The Socialist Worker’s World newspaper laments their dear comrade’s plight.
Cynthia’s all smiles here:
McKinney: “I apologize”
The party of police-haters
The party of race-baiting victims
More trouble for McKinney
Crazy Cynthia’s case goes to the feds
Same old, same old (video added)
What will she say now?
McKinney plays the race card
