Who's Sorry Now?
"Rep. Cynthia McKinney apologized this morning on the House floor for her scuffle with a Capitol Police officer, expressing "sincere regret" and saying there should not have been any physical contact with police.
"I come before this body to personally express again my sincere regret about the encounter with the Capitol Hill police," McKinney, a Democrat from Georgia, said in an one-minute statement to her House colleagues. "There should not have been any physical contact with police. I am sorry that this misunderstanding happened at all, and I regret its escalation."
