Sinema’s brazen lie

Krysten Sinema is out on the campaign trail lying to voters again, trying desperately to run from her radical views. In a new profile for ABC Tucson today, Kyrsten Sinema brazenly declared one of her top priorities if elected to the U.S. Senate would be protecting Arizona’s military bases, saying:

“Some of the things that are really important for southern Arizona involve protecting our military bases. Davis Monthan and Fort Huachuca are both in southern Arizona and they provide critical services to our national security all across the country. But they also provide jobs both for military officials and for civilians in our community. So one of my top priorities is ensuring that we’re protecting not just the bases but the commerce of those bases.”

Too bad Sinema’s record doesn’t back up her words. Sinema not only gave her full support to shutting down Luke Air Force base and all 85,000 jobs it supports for Arizonans, but also frequently led protests in Arizona against our military (once even in a pink tutu) and three times backed out-of-touch liberal fantasy legislation to create a federal “Department of Peace and Nonviolence.”

Here’s what Sinema had to say about closing Luke Air Force Base to the Arizona Republic:

“I do not support our country’s trend of expanding and increasing militarization. The U.S. military spends more money on weaponry and equipment than many countries spend altogether. The money spent on planes that are too heavy to fly, missile systems that don’t work, and weaponry in numbers too large ever to be used should be used to create useful jobs for working people. For this reason, I do not support keeping Luke Air Force Base open.”

“Try as she might, Kyrsten Sinema won’t be able to hide from her radical record of wanting to shut down Arizona’s Air Force bases and leading extremist rallies against the U.S. military,” said NRSC Spokesman Calvin Moore. “Sinema has spent decades trying to send the valuable jobs Arizona’s military bases bring to Arizona elsewhere, and that’s not going to change if she’s elected to the Senate.”
