McKinney Wins Election Debate

LEADERSHIP. Unaccountably, Drudge ran an inaccurate piece today about the congressional debate in Cynthia McKinney's district. He reports that:

Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D) failed to appear at two televised debates over the weekend, fueling criticism from two opponents who are challenging the controversial incumbent in a July 18 primary in the Georgia's 4th District.

CONGRESSIONAL QUARTERLY reports: DeKalb County Commissioner Hank Johnson and architectural firm project manager John Coyne, who are challenging McKinney, debated Saturday on WSB-TV and also participated in a second debate Friday that was sponsored by the Atlanta Press Club and which will air tonight at 7 p.m. Johnson's campaign said that McKinney's absence was a "slap in the face" to her constituents.

The video footage we've obtained not only fails to confirm this but soundly refutes it. McKinney appeared several times during the proceedings and by our reckoning managed a little more than a "slap in the face" to her would-be rivals. What's it look like to you?
