McKinney speaks truth to power in Wisconsin
(Madison, WI) Today six-term Congresswoman, former Democrat and now Green Party member Cynthia McKinney announced her candidacy and held a press conference at the Madison State Capitol building as part of her “Power to the People” tour, promoting her campaign to win the Green Party nomination for President of the United States.
McKinney has been criticized by many for seeking the truth. During her six terms in Congress she sought the truth about intelligence indicating the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the truth about why we went to war in Iraq, the truth about what happened in Florida in 2000 when thousands of African-Americans were denied the right to vote, the truth about voting irregularities involving commercially owned and operated electronic voting machines used in our elections, and the truth about the federal government’s failures to protect the people of New Orleans during and after Hurricane Katrina.
“To ask questions and to seek the truth is always a risky business, particularly in time of war, and particularly when challenging those in power,” said Ron Hardy, co-chair of the Wisconsin Green Party. “Cynthia McKinney has dared to challenge those in power and the two-party system. We are proud of her courage, and are proud to have her as one of our candidates.”
While the Green Party of the United States has called for a full
investigation into what happened on Sept. 11, 2001, and the Bush
Administration has never fully accounted for its failures to protect the American people, the Wisconsin Green Party is not affiliated with the ‘911 Truth Movement’.
