The amount of opposition research being hurled at Arizona Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema is so large that we can’t explain it. Did her opponent, Martha McSally, hire an exceptionally good opposition research firm? Are Internet detectives on the case trying to sink her campaign? Or has she just provided so much material over the years it’s impossible not to come across it?
Multiple videos have surfaced showing Sinema running down her own state as crazy and a “meth lab for democracy,” and now the Daily Caller is reporting on a 2006 interview with a Scottsdale nightlife magazine in which she accused stay-at-home moms of leeching off their husbands and boyfriends.
Isn’t this the sort of thing that CNN’s K-FILE is supposed to be unearthing? Funny how they keep getting scooped on this hot mess … wonder why?

Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema in a 2006 interview characterized stay-at-home moms as “leeches” who essentially cash checks “off their husbands or boyfriends.”
“These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life,” Sinema told Scottsdale nightlife magazine 944 in 2006. “That’s bullshit. I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?”
Sinema, the Phoenix New Times reported in 2012, “quickly walked back on [the stay-at-home moms statement], claiming that the interview was meant to be an over-the-top Daily Show-type spoof, and that she really did value moms of all stripes.”
Not a bad strategy: whenever you get caught saying something stupid that no one else found funny, just say you were trying to do a “Daily Show” bit.
Krysten Sinema: Not just a loon, but a spiteful, trashy loon. https://t.co/pMFYwSJxU9

A leech is generally one who sustains itself by taking, not giving. A stay at home mom is one of the hardest working people in the world, and gives so much of herself to her home and family…not the definition of a leech.

Wow…that's not nice! Stay at home Mom is one of the hardest and selfless jobs there is. And it takes a special kind of person to do it. Very rewarding though😊

I call stay at home moms the most important person in a household. Most important person to our society.
Too bad they are a declining population.

It's none of her business.

I can't figure out if she is trying to be a politician or a comedian? Either way, she sucks at both!

Irony from a witch loving, Taliban sympathizing, tutu sportin' non-patriot LIBERAL, who NEVER SERVED & now wants folks to FORGET ABOUT THAT so she can "leech" off Arizonans in a state she called the methlab of Democracy. There's only 100 senators, don't let her be 1 of them. VOTE

All you Stay-at-Home "Leeches" in AZ….make sure you get to the Polls this November

🙋🏻♀️Proud deplorable leech here!
— Ann ⚖️ (@Doodisgirl) October 20, 2018
Well, if she feels that way about stay at home moms, then it follows that she would think welfare recipients would be leeches off the government. Maybe she's not a Dem after all

Don't know how anyone could vote for her. The things she says reveals a lot about her character and it isn't good.

She must not want to win

Does this woman have a political death wish? Why is she running for office in a state where she obviously resents its people & everything about it. I think she meant to run in CA! We don’t want her in AZ. Good riddance to nasty rubbish. She’s making it easy for AZ to stay RED
