Congresswoman McKinney In Another Controversy

Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is caught up in another controversy. This time, she sat down with an Atlanta television station for an interview. But, she got upset when the reporter asked her about her scuffle with a capitol hill police officer.

She got up and walked out. She forgot she was still wearing the microphone and started talking about her own communications director, Coz Carson. Unknowingly, she said, "Oh crap. Now you know what? They lied to Coz, and Coz is a fool".

When McKinney realized what she had said and done, she sat back down and started damage control by claiming that what she had said was off the record. The station refused to make a deal. It's standard that, if a source wants to talk-off-the record, both sides have to agree before they start talking.
