From the WSJ:

Cynthia McKinney, the erstwhile congresswoman defeated in a primary two years ago after she made a series of anti-Semitic and otherwise inflammatory remarks, wants her seat back. The primary is July 20, and the seat is open, as McKinney’s successor, Denise Majette, is making an ill-advised Senate run. McKinney’s Web site tells her story of why she lost last time around:

Cynthia McKinney became one of the first Members of Congress to demand a thorough investigation into the events of September 11, 2001 and responsibly asked the question, "What did the Administration know and when did it know it about the events of September 11th?" she was vilified and targeted by Georgia and national Republicans. As a result of her thought-provoking question, an estimated 40,000 Republicans voted in the Democratic Primary to oust Cynthia. It is called "crossover" voting and her supporters have filed a lawsuit against this practice so that no voice of the people like Cynthia’s will ever be silenced again in such an unfair electoral practice.

That’s right, the "voice of the people" was silenced by . . . people voting!

Sigh.  I wish I lived in a time period where something like this would surprise me.
