Kyrsten Sinema is taking her out-of-touch pandering to the next level. In a new profile with Politico today, Sinema not only claims she’ll vote against Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (despite her record of voting with Democratic leadership 80% of the time), but also claims that if she’s elected to the Senate she won’t give up her old office on the House side – just so she can stay in walking distance of her $400/monthexercise classes at an exclusive Capitol Hill Pilates studio frequented by Michelle Obama.
The comments are pretty laughable on their own, but given her past avowed support for “Prada Socialism” as long as she can keep her “fabulous accessories,” the $10,000 check she’s taken from Chuck Schumer to support her campaign, and the $6.1 million more that Chuck Schumer’s super PAC has reserved in television ads to support Sinema this fall, you have to ask if Sinema will finally put her money where her mouth is.
Since Sinema says she isn’t voting for Schumer, will Sinema tell Schumer’s super PAC to cancel the millions he plans to spend on TV to support her before November?
“Kyrsten Sinema should put her money where her mouth is and tell Chuck Schumer’s super PAC to cancel the millions it’s earmarked to support her campaign on television,” said NRSC Spokesman Calvin Moore. “Sinema can try all she wants to distance herself from her out-of-touch record, but Arizonans know that if she’s elected to the Senate she’d be one of Chuck Schumer’s most loyal votes for liberals’ agenda in Congress.”
Sinema is a loyal vote for Democratic leadership, voting with leadership nearly 80% of the time. (Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, CQ Vote Studies)
