It really doesn't matter if the guard recognized her or not.
The rules are in place for a very good reason. They MUST
have their identity pin on, or they have to go through the
metal detectors like everyone else.
It would be very easy for a bad guy to find a look-a-like and
have them slide through security. The identification pins serve
a serious purpose.
Other politicians have forgotten their pins and have had to go
through the metal detectors. It's not a big deal to do so.
Cynthia McKinney's ego wouldn't fit through the detector, that's
all. She thinks she's too good for it. But the truth is that everyone
else who has forgotten their ID pins has had to go through the
metal detectors. They have managed to do so without becoming
irate and physically dangerous with the Capitol guards that are
doing their jobs to protect everyone.
Cynthia McKinney is an egotistical idiot. She deserves to be brought
up on charges; at least for trying to intimidate a guard who was
doing his job very well AND she needs to be taught that she isn't
too good to go through a metal detector when she fails to do HER
job - wearing proper security identification.
