Front Group alert!

Cynthia McKinney to speak in Gainesville
Former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney - a lightning rod of controversy while a member of the State House of Representatives and the U.S. Congress - will speak in Gainesville next Saturday, November 22.
She will be the keynote speaker at a banquet at the Gainesville Civic Center marking the 53rd anniversary of the Newtown Florist Club.
I didn't know wingnut Cindy was a gardener! Well, she's not:
The florist club began in 1950 as a place where people in the Newtown community could turn for flowers in times of illness or death in their families, but has evolved over the years into a civil rights/environmental justice organization.

"We are very excited to have Ms. McKinney join us as we celebrate our 53rd anniversary, as she is the embodiment of the spirit that guides us," said Newtown Florist Club President Faye Bush. "In addition, we will also recognize a number of individuals who battle tirelessly for social and economic justice, but go overlooked."
I'm sure they'll have plenty of Kool-Aid to go around.
