Her District Must Be So Proud...

Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney, one of the whackiest members of Congress and one of the most liberal, has introduced this piece of legislation: HR 4210 - The Tupac Amaru Shakur Records Collection Act of 2005. Rep. McKinney actually wants taxpayer dollars spent collecting and storing all governmental records "related to the life and death of Tupac Amaru Shakur... for historical and governmental purposes." Wait, it gets better.

The bill also calls for "the creation of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Records Collection at the National Archives; and a second repository at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia." The stated purpose for the Stone Mountain location is to "encourage continuing study and education regarding the life and death of Tupac Amaru Shakur."

Here's an interesting bit: "... the National Archives shall appoint an independent Citizens Advisory Committee... to hold hearings, administer oaths... [and] to subpoena private persons and State and Federal employees to compel testimony, and other information relevant to its responsibilities under this Act."

This is why she was re-elected? Good grief!
