Skip to comments.Turns Out Kyrsten Sinema’s “Homeless” Past Included A Home

When I wrote about the Arizona Senate race earlier today and the nearly even polling weve seen thus far, I asked if there was anything that might help Martha McSally break through and establish a solid lead over Kyrsten Sinema. I wonder if this might be just the ticket. Some news about Sinemas early history something shes campaigned on heavily and been questioned about before has emerged in the past 24 hours.
One big part of Sinemas narrative is the three years she spent homeless as a child. Its a heartwarming tale of a family grappling with adversity and overcoming the odds. Shes told the story many times, specifically referencing how her family had lived in an abandoned gas station without running water or electricity. Allow me to offer a tip of the hat to the New York Times who did some serious digging and obtained court records showing that the family had been paying electric, phone, and gas bills the entire time. The gas station wasnt exactly abandoned. It was closed but owned by a family member. And since it had a working toilet it obviously had running water.
As I mentioned, Sinema has been asked about these details in the past, but now shes getting hit with very specific questions. When the Times asked her why that situation qualified as homeless she deflected the question, offering a definition of homelessness as when youre living in a place thats not meant for living in. When asked about the gas, electric and phone bills, she responded, Oh gosh, I dont have an answer for that. Thats not something a little kid would hear about from her parents.

The Sinema Show
What is it with “I was born in a log cabin’’ crap in American politics?
And the fraud ends her TV ads with Independent.......Just Like Arizona. SHE NEVER SAYS SHE IS A DEMOCRAT. She has big Soros money behind her and has been advertising since April. McSally only started ads in August as she hadnt yet won the R Primary until late August. Sinema also has a delusional Veteran disparaging McSally in TV ads, saying that Sinema is pro-Veteran. She only became A BIT pro-Veteran during her stay in the House, knowing she was going to run for the Senate and would need some moderate voters. A COMPLETE FRAUD, BROUGHT TO US BY THE DEMOCRAT PARTY.
“And the fraud ends her TV ads with Independent”
But what about the blue wave? Shouldn’t she be a proud Democrat?
What is it with I was born in a log cabin crap in American politics?
How soon before fantasy become reality:
“I was born a poor, black child” - The Jerk
Well, she announced when she was first elected to the House (by way of a newly gerrymandered district) that she is the first proudly bisexual member of Congress. This whacko is now covering her tracks to conceal her extreme positions.
Jim, she’s toast!
That was my first thought as well. Great movie. :)
Close race? How about the fact that Republicans out voted Democrats in their head to head primaries for Senate by 145,000 votes mean anything no? How about the registration edge Republicans have?
I was thinking there are plenty of people in that situation. I know one personally (owns a store, has a makeshift apartment in the back of the shop). In big cities like NYC, the rents are so high, a lot of people have similar setups.
She had a place that was basically theirs to call home. No it wasnt ideal. But, they did have the privacy and a lock on the door. Im sure they put furniture in it, ie beds, sofa, tv. So, No that is not homeless.
Personally, I couldn’t give less of a damn what a candidates origins are. Humble? “Privileged”? Who cares? All I wanna know is whether they’re against the gang-rape of the Constitution and the American taxpayer or not.
Brett Kavanaugh was homeless once. He slept on my couch in New Haven.
Well, we didn't actually use it. There was an old abandoned house on the back of our property that used it a hundred years ago.......
My brother owned a motorcycle apparel shop. It had an upstairs that he turned into a bedroom. It had a storage room that became a semi kitchen...fridge, hot plate, crockpot, etc. The bathroom already had a shower. He put a huge tv on a ledge and then a sofa, chair, and coffee table on a rug in the corner of the shop itself. It was a place to relax for the customers and his living room at night. Rented out his condo and called the shop home for about 4 years. Guess he was homeless too.
