Kyrsten Sinema

The latest on U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema. A Democrat, Sinema was elected to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate in 2018. Before that she represented Arizona's 9th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2012 to 2018, the Arizona State Senate and the Arizona State House of Representatives. She originally was a member of the Green Party before switching to the Democratic Party in 2004. 

Dear Sen. Sinema: We Love You—Your Pals, the Hedge Fund Bros

The good news for Democrats, and the Earth, is that the party's two chief obstructionists in the Senate, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, have signed off on a huge climate, energy and tax package. The bad news is that, as always, Sinema put the interests of her lobbyist paymasters over those of the country by forcing Democrats to abandon a tax increase on hedge fund managers and private equity wizards.
