Cynthia McKinney to Challenge Primary Results

Even though Cynthia McKinney lost the election decisively, by almost 18% to be exact, she is challenging the results:

Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA), who lost Tuesday’s runoff bid to challenger Hank Johnson, is seeking to legally contest the results after alleging that error-prone electronic voting machines and constituent disenfranchisement had caused her campaign to suffer.

RAW STORY has learned that, as of yesterday, her campaign officials had tallied 25 sworn affidavits and believed that several dozen more had yet to be counted.

Karon Edge-Fitzpatrick, a poll watcher for the McKinney campaign, told RAW STORY that she and other officials would be meeting with attorneys late yesterday to discuss available legal avenues, but did not immediately return numerous calls for comment later in the afternoon and today.

She refuses to accept that she is the sole reason why she lost. It wasn’t because of voting machine errors or voter disenfranchisement. The issue was that her constituents grew tired of her ridiculous behavior, and this election challenge is simply another example of it.
