I wonder if we'll be hearing about this every night?

McKinney Witnesses Called to Testify

From Fox News:

A staff aide to Rep. Sam Farr, D-Calif., will testify on Thursday in a probe that could determine whether to file charges against Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney for allegedly striking a Capitol Police officer...
McKinney, the six-term Georgia Democratic congresswoman, was bypassing a metal detector while entering Longworth House Office Building when asked by the officer to stop and go through the checkpoint. She allegedly turn around and beat the officer's chest more than once.

Yes, I realize this is less serious than "ethics" charges, but... Will Cynthia McCinney will be referred to as "embattled" until this thing blows over?
