The first black woman to serve as a U.S. House Representative from Georgia, defeated in the 2002 Democratic primary by Denise Majette largely over allegations that she implied that George W. Bush knew about the impending 2001 terror attacks and did nothing to stop them. Green Party's nominee for President in 2008.

"We know there were numerous warnings of the events to come on September 11. Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, delivered one such warning. Those engaged in unusual stock trades immediately before September 11 knew enough to make millions of dollars from United and American airlines, certain insurance and brokerage firms' stocks. What did this Administration know, and when did it know it about the events of September 11? Who else knew and why did they not warn the innocent people of New York who were needlessly murdered?" -- March 25, 2002
