Cynthia Lynne "Cindy" Axne (born April 20, 1965) is a businesswoman and partisan Democrat currently serving as the U.S. representative from Iowa's 3rd congressional district.

Axne said of her constituents, "the anti-vaccine crazies are out there. It's a hot mess. The Christian right is - everything under the guise while they hold a cross for God or whatever..."[1]

U.S. House of Representatives

2018 election in Iowa's 3rd district

Axne was elected in 2018 during a blue wave, defeating Republican then-incumbent David Young by just over 2% of the vote.[2]

Phony “moderate”

Axne has been deceptively portrayed as much more “moderate” than she actually is, such as her own House website calling her a “moderate Democrat” and asserting that she wants to “do more than impeach the president.”[3] Politico has also concurred the narrative that Axne is supposedly a “moderate Democrat”.[4] In addition, a 2019 report card by GovTrack absurdly ranked Axne as the 7th most conservative member out of all House Democrats, even giving her a “0.50” rating between 0 and 1,[5] with ‘0’ being the least conservative and ‘1’ being the most conservative. A chart ranking given for Axne by On the Issues has also been somewhat misleading,[6] as the website's methodology ranks candidates as being more moderate if there is no information given for positions on certain issues. Since seven out of the twenty topics (35%) for Axne had “No opinion on” put in, Axne's left-wing positions were arguably under-represented in the chart.

Despite claims of being a “moderate Democrat”, Axne is endorsed by the extremely pro-abortion EMILY's List,[7] has received a 100% rating from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund in 2019, a 62% rating from the ACLU, a 100% rating from the NEA, a 90% rating from Progressive Punch, and a 93% rating from the League of Conservation Voters.[8]
