The reporter asked if the controversy over the confrontation with the police officer has been a distraction for her.
McKinney told the reporter, "You're a distraction because that seems to be all you want to talk about."
She then got up and walked out of the interview, still wearing the mike. She is heard saying, "You know what? They lied to Coz and Coz is a fool."
McKinney apparently realized her blunder and told the reporter that the comments about her communications director, Coz Carson, were off the record.

If her district re-elects her, they are getting what they deserve, and losing what they are hoping to gain... respect.
No word yet from the grand jury on whether or not charges will be filed.
