Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, who ran for President under the Green Party banner, was detained again October 16. McKinney was purged by Democrats after serving six terms in Congress. Among other things, McKinney had incurred the enmity of the power industry for her opposition to nukes. Her run for president took place in 2008 She has now apparently been targeted for "random" screenings. She was returning from Pakistan.

McKinney told the Northside Greens that TSA personnel didn't seem to know just why she had been targeted. They chatted with her about the job market and about their difficulties paying off their student loans.
