Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) continues to be the frontrunner and may soon represent a new Congressional District. She was an Obama delegate, served on the White House Health Reform Task Force, and was with the President when Obamacare was signed. She has visited the White House at least 25 times.
The GOP has plenty of ammunition against her, but this is a tough district. Sinema led a war protest while wearing a pink tutu in her role of spokesperson for the Green Party. In 2003, she recalled “singing and spiraling” in a “pagan” dance pit in Miami during another anti-war rally.
In discussing women who do not have outside jobs she said “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bullshit. I mean, what the f–k are we really talking about here?”
After the 9/11 attack she organized the Arizona Alliance for Peace and Justice (AAPJ), which denounces U.S. military aid to Israel. In accordance with AAPJ’s commitment to “world disarmament,” Sinema wrote that US military and political leaders have “blood on their hands,” and stated her opposition to using any military force to capture or kill Osama bin Laden. She has also accused the police of “repression and brutality.”
