‘One Of The Principal Obstacles To Progress’: Sinema Advisors Quit, Say She Fails To Stand By Her People

Harold Hutchison 

Five members of an advisory council to Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona resigned, criticizing Sinema for opposing certain legislative priorities held by Democrats.

“In order to have the representative democracy that our nation strives for, we must protect voting rights by passing the Freedom to Vote Act. In the face of complete refusal to compromise from the opposing side, this means we must amend or abolish the filibuster, a Jim Crow relic designed to keep power in the hands of the few,” the former members of Sinema’s Veterans Advisory Council wrote in their resignation letter, released by Common Defense.

“In addition to protecting the freedom to vote, your constituents urgently need you to support the Biden agenda,” the resigning veterans added. “However, just like voting rights, you have become one of the principal obstacles to progress, answering to big donors rather than your own people. We shouldn’t have to buy representation from you, and your failure to stand by your people and see their urgent needs is alarming.”

Sinema, along with Democratic Sen Joe Manchin of West Virginia, opposed the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending package. Activists confronted Sinema about her actions in a restroom, on an airplane, and at the Boston Marathon earlier this month.

  1. I’ll go be her advisor. 29-year military officer, white male and not in the LGBTQI+ community.

  2. I, also a white male veteran, will join you to advize her. Besides, I live in NM, which is close to Arizona (in distance), so the trip will be easy!.

  3. I will go and help you guys. I am ex-Navy, white male. I am part of the gay community, not the LGBTQ(whatever other letters they can make up). I believe in freedom and America. I do not believe in these nasty people trying to get Sinema to bow to their tyrannical demands.

  4. Do I understand this right. This was a (military) veterans advisory council. If so, she doesn’t need them if they want the federal government to have control of the elections. That is not constitutional. Isn’t that part of the Voting Rights Act they want to pass.

  5. Sinema was threatened in a post in the AZ Republic last year that if she didn’t vote the “Democratic Party Line”, then they would put up a candidate in the next primary to oppose her, one that would only support the Democratic Party line. Following her into a bathroom with cameras is going way too far. This is just how pathetic the Democratic Party has become. They will do anything to retain power and push their socialist agenda, while bankrupting this Nation in the process.
