Cynthia McKinney (born March 17, 1955 in Atlanta, Georgia) is a former liberal Democrat United States Congresswoman from the state of Georgia's Fourth Congressional District from 1993-2003 and 2005-2007. Prior to being elected to Congress, from 1988 to 1992, she was a Georgia state legislator.

McKinney, who was defeated for reelection by her own party in 2002 after voting against the Iraq War, was again defeated in 2006 by her own party after creating a disturbance during which she struck a Capitol Hill police officer who stopped her after she tried to illegally bypass a metal detector.[1] She had earlier considered a bid for the Presidency on the environmentalist Green Party ticket.[2]
