Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett reports that the Green Party has been decertified in Arizona because it doesn’t have enough registered party members. The group was also hampered by the fact that too few Greenies voted in last year’s presidential election.
To qualify for recognized party status, new parties must file 23,041 valid signatures with the Secretary of State by February 27, 2014. The Green Party is attempting to get recertified.
In a bold stroke of political opportunism, Kyrsten Sinema concocted the reconfiguration of herself as a radical Democrat —- facilitating her election to Congress in AZ CD-9 in 2012.
But a decade earlier, in 2002, Sinema lost her initial state legislative race as a Green Party candidate. She finished in last place, receiving only 8% of the vote. By 2004, as a newly constructed Democrat — Sinema, a close associate of Janet Napolitano — won a state legislative House seat in the former LD 15, by 37%. Now she’s a far-left member of Congress.
Although she revels in her unconventional roles as the first openly bisexual and acknowledged atheist elected to the U.S. Congress, Kyrsten Sinema nonetheless became mainstream enough to gain the endorsement of the liberal Arizona Republic and skunk the CD-9 voters.
Her yearly “Cinco de Mayo greeting” in the Communist People’s Weekly World and foul mouthed descriptions of stay-at-home mothers apparently didn’t phase the Dems who dutifully marked the ballot for her. Recently, transforming herself yet again, she tried to separate herself from the Obamacare debacle by voting with the GOP.
Sinema will be up for reelection in the upcoming congressional mid-terms. Will the Democrats continue to pay so little attention?
