Kyrsten Sinema: "I Didn't Mistakenly Vote for S@#%!"

Kyrsten Sinema says she was tricked, sort of, into voting for a Republican bill in the Rules Committee yesterday.
Kyrsten Sinema's pissed when she calls us back last night.

"I didn't mistakenly vote for shit!" she fumes. "They explained what we were voting on wrong."

The Democratic state senator's ire isn't directed at us, but rather at her Republican colleagues at the state Capitol -- and also at Arizona Daily Star reporter Andrea Kelly, who wrote a blog post yesterday accusing Sinema and another Dem, Olivia Cajero Beford, of voting to ask the federal government for a waiver that would removed 280,000 people from Medicaid.

She was especially ticked at how Kelly mentioned high in her article that Sinema has been a lawmaker since 2005, and that Cajero Bedford has been one since 2003.

"The way they wrote it, it's as if we're too stupid to vote on bills," she says.

Not that Kelly got her facts wrong, mind you.

​Sinema admits she thought she was voting on an amendment to the bill yesterday that merely fixed a typo during a Senate Rules Committee hearing. The committee's vote was unanimous. But senators Russell Pearce and Scott Bundgaard, the committee's chairman and vice-chairman, "put the amendment and the eligibility vote together as one vote," she says.

The vote in the Rules Commitee was preceded yesterday by the successful passage of the bill in both the Senate and House. Sinema, who's stated publicly that she thinks it's unconstitutional, took the opportunity to correct her earlier mistake and voted "no."

The governor's expected to sign the bill this morning.

"I'm actually really upset. They're cheating," she says about the faux pas in Rules. "The lesson learned is quite simply this: Don't believe them."

She softens her tone after venting, confessing that she doesn't think Pearce deceived her intentionally. He "came over and apologized" afterward, she says. The Senate hadn't had a "real" Rules Committee session so far this year, and the rules of rules hadn't been fully explained, he told her.

Sinema's a former state representative who's new to the Senate -- same as Bedford. It's a forgiveable mistake. And with a few more weeks of practice, we predict that these Dems will be casting their "no" votes on GOP bills like champs.

Hey Kyrsten,

I know as an attorney it make you a naturally deceptive and arrogant. It doesn't make the arguments valid and/or true. Also cleverly using what I call word fraud. For example, you like to say a person is "undocumented" instead of "illegal" to describe those stealing ID's for work or simply having families that become an "anchor" for the future. If or when thisCountry looks like Nogales and the very "rights" you so wrongly advocate don't apply and you will be wondering what happened. . I think the term "rights" is overly used and more correctly the term welfare comes to mind in giving a "hand up" not a "hand out". I know what is right and wrong, do you?

I am wondering what you really want. I hate that you are helping to distort the facts and use the media and 3TV to exploit your agenda. I bet a few years in Nogales might be a better lesson. I could argue and debate with you, but it would be better if you lived in sqauler and filth to maybe appreciate this Country and stop humiliating the United States and Arizona. I suppose Raul Grijalva is your hero or maybe Al Sharpten... I know Krysten Sinema a snobby privleged white girl, how sympathetic to the minorities. You would be better off (finacially) getting on the class action lawsuits bandwagon and get off this soapbox. I thinkg maybe a few late night commercials on TV instead giving people an idea to sue for some alleged grievance done to us by a big companies. I mean that's your angle anyway.... it is getting old and tiring.

She sponsored the bill to tax Medical Marijuana out of existence, and now says she didn't know what the bill was.Perhaps she is just hopelessly incompetent.

Did not take her long to start putting in Republican bills. Really looks like it was no mistake. Racist.

Kyrsten Sinema is already a "champ" in my mind, when it comes to how beautiful and lovely she is. She is fine and curvy. I wish her good luck in the Senate full of POS's.
