Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) found her front yard “toilet papered” with VCR tape Sunday when she returned from promoting her new documentary ‘American Blackout’ at the Sundance Film Festival. “Obviously, someone wants to send a message that they know where I live and can have access to my front yard to do unkind things,” she said. The crime was reported to local police.
Her film ‘American Blackout’ chronicles voting irregularities and supposed disenfranchisement of some African Americans from 2000-2004. McKinney hopes “everyone who cares about our country” will see it. The Congresswoman has been a heavy critic of the Bush Administration and lead a national investigation into the 2000 presidential election irregularities.
Cynthia McKinney also initiated a bill in the House of Representatives last November that calls for the creation of a records collection at the National Archives pertaining to the unsolved killing of emcee Tupac Shakur. HR 4210 calls for “a second repository at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia” as well. The center opened Jun. 11, 2005.
