Kyrsten Lea Sinema (born July 12, 1976) is a left-wing progressive senator from the state of Arizona and a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives. She is the first openly bisexual member of Congress; unsurprisingly, she has an extremely liberal voting record. However, she did vote against a leftist attempt to include a federal minimum wage hike to $15/hr within a COVID-19 relief package in 2021,[2] using a dramatic "thumbs-down"[3] to imitate John McCain's vote in 2017 against repealing and replacing Obamacare.[4] She received praise from some conservatives,[5] but predictable leftist outrage.[6] She very narrowly defeated her opponent in the general election in November 2012,[7] and again in 2018.[8]

Since 2021, Sinema along with Joe Manchin, have been best known for being the two Democrat senators who have voted to keep the U.S. Senate's filibuster intact despite several threats from their own party.[9]

Bigotry

In 2003 Sinema summoned Code Pink and a coven of witches called Pagan Cluster to an anti-war rally.[10] Sinema said at the time she didn't care if an American joined the Taliban.[11] When questioned whether she regretted her original comments at an interview in 2018, she refused to answer directly, and instead made excuses.[12]

In 2010, Sinema called her home state Arizona “the meth lab of democracy”.[13]

Sinema has called stay-at-home mothers "leeches."[14]
