Hank Johnson's long rap sheet.
Aug. 1, 2006 -- It appears that Hank Johnson, Rep. Cynthia McKinney's so-called "Democratic" opponent in the August 8 primary in the Georgia Fourth District, has more in common with Republicans than merely his acquiescence to the Bush-Cheney party line on the Middle East. Johnson also has quite a rap sheet that includes judgments, tax liens, lawsuits, property seizures, and ethics complaints.

A certain "progressive" and "Democratic" web site was very quick to endorse Johnson. It appears that in addition to approving Johnson's overt GOP support, the web site in question shares something else in common with Johnson: the taint of financial impropriety (birds of a feather do flock together).

Hank Johnson's impressive "rap sheet" --

Commissioner Hank Johnson used money out of his campaign accounts to contribute funds to the Committee for a Better DeKalb (PAC) to help pass the 2005 Bond Referendum.
County Commissioner Hank Johnson, whose district includes Hickory Ridge, was accused of accepting a campaign contribution from the owners of that landfill. Johnson denied the charge, but county records show he received $1,000 in July 2000 from Doug Dillard, the attorney representing the landfill. Johnson defended the donation, saying Dillard represents many developers seeking county approval for their projects. Atlanta Journal Constitution 2/20/2002: More than 200 pack DeKalb landfill hearing seeking answers.

1. Saw The Commentator On "Situation Room"
Not Wolfie - the fat, unhealthy looking one - refer to McKinney as "degraced." Aren't you so glad we have CNN up in Atlanta to tell all of us poor, dumb Georgia voters who deserves to represent us?

2. He's just a "token black man" that the GOP and conservative Dems
want to use to unseat Cynthia.

I know that sounds racist, but it's the people running him for office who are using such a racist tactic. He's unintelligent, unimpressive, and has no connection to his distrct whatsoever.

3. They're always pulling dirty tactics with McKinney
Remember when they had Republicans voting in her previous primary just to oust her. It will come back to bite them in the ass. It always does. Georgia is a beutiful state with many polite people, but I'm really getting fed up living in Georgia with their ultra-Conservative bullshit. Many in GA think blue laws are nation wide.
