DECATUR, Ga. (WXIA) -- She's back, or at least it looks like she could be.
Former Democratic Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has filed paperwork to try to raise money for her old 4th District seat.
McKinney is not returning calls about her apparent candidacy yet, but a former supporter warns people not to take her lightly.
"I'm not surprised that she would try to run in this district," said political consultant Jan Selman of Decatur.
Selman, who now supports incumbent Congressman Hank Johnson, credits McKinney with energizing people who felt left out.
"People who had never been involved in politics, the disenfranchised, she was able to reach out to them and that's what made her successful," Selman told 11Alive News on Tuesday.
Known for her fierce outspokenness, McKinney's remarks have often been her undoing.
