Wisconsin Greens Support McKinney

Wisconsin's Green Party nominated former Rep. Cynthia McKinney at their convention over the weekend.

(Oshkosh) The Wisconsin Green Party Spring Gathering and Presidential Preference Convention was held today at the River Center at the Gruenhagen Conference Center, UW Oshkosh.

Cynthia McKinney received an overwhelming majority of the votes cast in the Wisconsin Green Party Presidential Preference Primary. McKinney received 79% of the vote; Kent Mesplay received 10%, Write-Ins for Ralph Nader 5%, Kat Swift 2%, Uncommitted 2%, and Jesse Johnson 1%.
That'd be the same Cynthia McKinney who: punched a cop and blamed racism; accused President Bush of advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks; begged a Saudi Arabian prince for money by badmouthing her country; sued to overturn her crushing primary defeat in 2002; was fined $33,000 for campaign finance violations; and never leaves home without a full deck of race cards.

Way to distinguish yourselves, Greens. We'll all take you a lot more seriously now.
