Book Reveals Sinema Has Been Marketing Herself as Anti-Government to GOP Donors

According to a forthcoming book, Sen. Kyrsten Silena (D-Arizona), has been masquerading herself as a rank and file Republican to GOP donors while mocking President Joe Biden while defending far-right members of Congress.

In This will not pass, New York TimesAlexander Burns, reporter Jonathan Martin describe how, at a private fundraiserSinema was mostly Republican-lobbyist-oriented and marketed herself to be anti-taxes and anti-government. While shaming Biden, Sinema reportedly spoke highly of Kevin McCarthy (R.California), a House Minority Leader who, like Sinema. has worked To sabotage Democrats throughout Biden’s presidency thus far.

She’s also defended extremist Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Arizona), who According to reports, he helped plan the attack on Capitol Hill on January 6.he was associated with right-wing militia organizations, but has blamed the attack upon anti-fascists without any evidence.

“I love Andy Biggs,” Sinema said. “I know some people think he’s crazy, but that’s just because they don’t know him.” Biggs, in return, has praised Sinema and her partner-in-obstruction Sen. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) for their work in keeping the filibuster.

Biden aides have said that Sinema doesn’t sound like a Democrat, but more like Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), according to the book.

Aides have also claimed that Sinema has a recalcitrant streak when it comes masking Biden’s policies. Last spring, “she became the first-ever lawmaker to argue with White House aides when they asked her to wear a face mask in the company of the president, repeatedly asking why that was necessary when she had been vaccinated,” the authors wrote.

Sinema is the first lawmaker to oppose masking around Biden, who is in an age group that’s especially at risk for severe COVID infection. It is notable, given the opposition Republicans have shown to masking rules.

If what’s written in the book is true, it means that Sinema was against masking around the president even before Republicans were, despite Republican members’ willingness to rack up finesTo defy House mask mandates that began around the same period.

Sinema is portrayed as a unreliable lawmaker who is willing to fight and throw her party under the bus.
