Cynthia McKinney Running for Congress as a Green?

Cynthia McKinney Running for Congress as a Green?
by Ronald Hardy/April 2, 2012

According to Atlanta Progressive News, Cynthia McKinney will be attempting to get on the ballot for the House of Representatives in her Atlanta district where she previously served 6 terms as a Democrat. Running as a Green, she will need over 18,000 signatures to get on the ballot. Georgia is one of the worst states in the USA for ballot access for non-Democrats/Republicans.

From APN:

(APN) ATLANTA — Former US Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) is planning to run for Georgia’s 4th US Congressional seat as a member of the Green Party, the candidate told Atlanta Progressive News.

McKinney is planning to attempt to gather all of some 18,860 petition signatures, which are required under Georgia’s extremely restrictive ballot access laws for independent and minor party candidates.

Georgia currently requires independent and minor party candidates for non-statewide offices such as US House District seats to gather signatures from five percent of the registered voters in the District. In the 4th District, 18,860 signatures are five percent of the 377,189 registered voters in the District.

As previously reported by APN, numerous candidates have attempted in previous years but failed to gain the number of required signatures in Georgia.

McKinney is running for her old US Congress seat, which she held from 1992 to 2002, and again from 2004 to 2006.

US Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) has held the seat since defeating McKinney in the Democratic Primary Run-off in 2006.
