CNN.com - McKinney: Race sparked tiff with police - Mar 31, 2006
: "The 51-year-old legislator was surrounded by more than two dozen supporters at the Friday news conference, some carrying handwritten placards that read 'Recognize our congresswoman' and 'Is Cynthia a target?'
During the conference, held at historically black Howard University in Washington, civil rights attorney James Myart said his client was 'assaulted' by a Capitol Police officer, whose name the department refuses to release.
'Because she was assaulted and placed in impending fear of her safety, she responded,' he said. 'This case has just begun and we're going to fight, and we're going to use the U.S. Constitution.'
Myart said McKinney would seek a criminal investigation against the officer, and a civil lawsuit against both the officer and the Capitol Police is being explored."
