Kyrsten Sinema Uses Sequestration Fears to Raise Cash for Re-Election Campaign

"Please stand with me against these cuts and help me stand up for actual Arizona jobs. Contribute $5, $10 or $25 today to make your voice heard," concludes Kyrsten's message, with the appropriate link to the page where you can enter your credit card number.

See, when Sinema knows that nearly 50,000 Arizona jobs are at stake, her reflex is to make sure her job is secure.

But wait, didn't we just have an election four months ago or something?

So why does Sinema need our money right now? The next congressional election is about year and eight months away.

Because no occasion to ask taxpayers for cash should be overlooked. And to give Sinema and her team credit, they rarely overlook such occasions.

Sinema's FB-watchers ain't having it, though, pointing out that representing the people of the Ninth Congressional District already is something Sinema's paid to do.

"In order to 'stand up for the middle class' we should send you yet MORE money? No way!" writes one.

"We shouldn't have to pay to have our voices heard," types another. "We voted you in office to do that."

There are a few Sinema apologists on the comment string, claiming that the appeal was written by a staffer and, therefore, it's not Sinema's fault. Even though Sinema's signature is on the e-mailed appeal.

After all, that's what staffers are for: to take the blame.

One staffer does weigh in, telling all and sundry that this isn't Congresswoman Sinema asking for dolo, but rather Candidate Sinema.

"To be clear, this is the Sinema Campaign Facebook page," the anonymous scribbler scribbles, "and requests for contributions are for the campaign, not for Congresswoman Sinema."

Boy, someone definitely doesn't get it.

I know shamelessness is practically a requirement for Arizona politics, but does that extend to campaign staffers as well?

Apparently, so.

Do you really think she has any decency? The woman has zero respect for the law. Here's her record at the AZ court system:

The last case, involving driving in excess of 15 mph in a school zone, was dismissed after three months, meaning she very likely committed the crime but took one of those videos to wipe her record clean of that particular offense. Not only that, she claimed to be an active defense attorney for murderers, despite not having one document on file for her with Arizona court in Phoenix. A lying animal.

Pay attention for a minute you dizzy bitch.

Not spending as much money as you would like is not a budget cut.

Spending less money that you did last year is a budget cut.

Try it. I've had to for that last five years.

Wake up and do your job or we will find someone that will.

She wasn't my first choice in the election but she's a damned sight better than the other options.

I agree with one poster below. She is still a better alternative to both a Tea Bugger fruitcaKKKe or a Republican (moderate or otherwise). I'd rather there be a "D" representing here and there, than having this state being an entire Red in color. To help maintain some balance of power, and of course--sanity.

One more DINO in the pile, this one is neither news nor a surprise. Of course I wa a Tea Party Right Wing Psychotic Asshole for warning everyone about her during the last election. WE MUST vote for everything with a D behind it's name, even if it's the Devil himself. I guess it works fine for those who can't think for themselves....Can't think for themselves??...Wait a minute, I just described a Randy-Bot.

You remember Carlos Galindo, local unapologetic liberal, activist and radio show host. New Times named him Best Pain in the Ass to Politicians in 2011. Too bad you don't interview him more and ask him his opinion on local and national politics. Too bad you chose to follow Parraz/Snow around with their one pony show.

Day late, dollar short, Carlos Galindo has been warning you of this for years. Sinema is just an opportunist on her way to becoming a career politician.

Compare that to anyone else. Just go ahead & try it. She disgraces your state.

There wasn't a dime's worth of difference between Sinema and Parker.. in my opinion.  I supported Powell Gammill.

When the choice is between a blue wolf and a red wolf one wonders why people bother voting at all.

@Shadow_Wolf How about selecting the best candidate for the position instead of picking one based on party affiliation.  A full third of the voters in Arizona have now rejected party affiliation and have told the parties, essentially, that they will vote for the best candidate on the ballot regardless of party affiliation.  Yeah, I know that's more work, but no one said that a democracy was easy.

@PosersSuck Actually, many voters considered their options and just thought that she was the best of two bad alternatives.  The R/Tea candidate was a worse choice.   Wouldn't it be nice to get a decent candidate on the ballot every now and again.  Not all the time, mind you, that would be too much to ask for.  But at the end of the day, the R/Tea candidate was a lousy option as well.

@gpscentral And Vernon Parker wasn't an opportunist on his way to becoming a career politician?  Oh, thats right, they are all opportunists on their way to becoming  career politicians.  That is why we are in the mess we are in - it doesn't matter which letter is behind their name (D or R) they are all hoping to be career politicians followed by being career lobbyists.

There is almost never anyone to be excited about, it always boils down to the lesser of two evils. Problem being when you choose between the lesser of two evils, you still get evil.
