George K. McKinney, U.S. marshal - Baltimore Sun

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
In 1973, he was appointed U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia — the third African-American marshal to serve the district — by President Richard M. Nixon."As the U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia, he became the only marshal who personally served a subpoena on President Nixon ordering him to turn over the Watergate tapes," said a daughter, Monica McKinney-Lupton of Glen Arm.On April 18, 1974, U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica ordered Mr. McKinney to serve President Nixon the subpoena regarding the White House tapes.President Nixon's chief defense counsel, James D. St. Clair, told Mr. McKinney that delivering the subpoena was unconstitutional. When Mr. McKinney threatened to deputize the White House Secret Service detail in order to comply with Judge Sirica's orders, the president's lawyer agreed to a meeting with Nixon.Mr. McKinney wasn't sure what the reaction would be from the man who had just appointed him U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia and realized he could be fired."Any time you're dealing with the chief executive in an adversarial role — that's different," Mr. McKinney said in a 1995 interview with The Baltimore Sun. "But I was worried. When backed into a corner, there was no telling what Nixon might do."The president accepted the subpoena from Mr. McKinney, who left his D.C. marshal post in 1977.From 1977 to 1994, he held numerous high-level executive management positions with the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington. Some of the positions included serving as director of justice protective services, assistant director for physical security, senior security specialist, operations security officer and computer security officer.In 1995, President Bill Clinton appointed Mr. McKinney as U.S. marshal for Maryland, the first African-American to hold that position in the state since the founding of the U.S. Marshal Service in 1789."I think it says a lot about the district of Maryland and the country," Mr. McKinney said at the time. "Minority marshals are relatively new. But it's something I've aspired to ever since I was a deputy. I wanted to be i...

Franklin Kameny, Gay Rights Pioneer, Dies at 86

Thu, Oct 13, 2011
Harvard. Mr. Kameny became a founder of the Mattachine Society of Washington, an early advocacy group. He picketed the White House in 1965, and in 1971 he ran for the delegate seat representing the District of Columbia in the House of Representatives, calling himself a “qualified Washingtonian who happens also, but incidentally, to be a homosexual.” He also claimed authorship of the phrase “Gay is good” a year before the 1969 Stonewall uprising in New York, which is widely regarded as the first milestone in the gay rights movement. Many of the tributes that began to appear on the Web on Wednesday noted that Mr. Kameny’s death coincided with National Coming Out Day, which was observed Tuesday. Mr. Kameny has been likened both to Rosa Parks and to Gen. George Patton, two historical figures not frequently found in the same sentence. “Frank Kameny was our Rosa Parks, and more,” Richard Socarides, the president of a new advocacy group, Equality Matters, said on Wednesday. It is a measure of how much changed in Mr. Kameny’s lifetime that Mr. Socarides served as the White House special assistant for gay rights in the Clinton administration. The Patton analogy was made by Dudley Clendinen and Adam Nagourney in their 1999 book “Out for Good: The Struggle to Build a Gay Rights Movement in America.” “Franklin Kameny had the confidence of an intellectual autocrat, the manner of a snapping turtle, a voice like a foghorn, and the habit of expressing himself in thunderous bursts of precise an...
