Sinema Makes The Right Enemies In Arizona

The Left censured her.

A person in politics is many times defined better by their enemies than by their friends. As such, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Democrat of Arizona, is doing an excellent job. That’s why her state party censured her. Can’t have her protecting the Senate. That would be good for America. And that’s something Democrats can’t abide by.

FNC: “The Arizona Democratic Party Saturday formally censured Sen. Krysten Sinema, D-Ariz., for refusing to roll back the Senate filibuster in order to pass a  Democrat voting change bill.

The executive board Saturday made the public rebuke following Sinema’s vote this week to keep the 60-vote threshold in the Senate, along with Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and all Senate Republicans. Her decision helped scuttle President Biden’s goal of passing major election changes.

The board action Saturday is the result of a resolution Arizona Democratic Party state committee members passed in the fall that authorized the executive board to censure Sinema if she chose to protect the filibuster and obstruct that legislation.”

“I want to be clear, the Arizona Democratic Party is a diverse coalition with plenty of room for policy disagreements, however on the matter of the filibuster and the urgency to protect voting rights, we have been crystal clear,” Arizona Democratic Party Chair Raquel Terán said in a statement. “In the choice between an archaic legislative norm and protecting Arizonans’ right to vote, we choose the latter, and we always will.” Nope. Sinema bucked the Left. This is the price.

“While we take no pleasure in this announcement, the ADP Executive Board has decided to formally censure Senator Sinema as a result of her failure to do whatever it takes to ensure the health of our democracy,” she wrote. Nope. She takes great pleasure. Democrats live for revenge.

“During three terms in the U.S. House, and now in the Senate, Kyrsten has always promised Arizonans she would be an independent voice for the state — not for either political party,” Sinema’s office said in a statement to press. “She’s delivered for Arizonans and has always been honest about where she stands.” Says Sinema, “[W]hile I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division affecting our country.”
