The official police report on Rep. Cynthia McKinney's clash with a Capitol Hill police officer three weeks ago says the DeKalb County congresswoman struck the officer "in his chest with [a] closed fist."
The story also answers my questions about where the Congressional Black Caucaus was on this incident.
But under pressure from House Democrats and the Congressional Black Caucus, McKinney, a Democrat, apologized for the incident on the House floor last week.
Hum, maybe there is hope for them afterall, but I'm not going to hold my breath. Perhaps they just realized that they'd be backing the wrong horse on this one and decided to keep their powder dry for a fight they could win.
In any case, it looks like we'll learn soon enough whether or not Rep. McKinney will face crimial charges.
