Sinema

So a couple weeks ago she missed the vote on the Jan Commission, and this week she missed the lunch the VP Harris had with women Senators And she missed the Senate Democratic lunch with Texas Democratic lawmakers

Edit - didn’t know about the broken foot so I guess she has a legit excuse

1. She broke her foot over the weekend

Picture on Monday looked like she was still in the hospital.
So at least she has an excuse this time...

5. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema misses Vice President Kamala Harris' dinner

From: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/sen-kyrsten-sinema-misses-vice-president-kamala-harris-dinner/ar-AAL7fAZ

Harris invited all of the Senate’s 24 female senators — 16 Democrats and eight Republicans — to the U.S. Naval Observatory for the event, which harkened an earlier era where lawmakers put aside their political differences in the name of collegiality.

A spokesperson for Sinema, D-Ariz., did not immediately say why Sinema did not attend the dinner.

Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., also did not attend the meal, where senators dined on mahi-mahi and strawberry-rhubarb croustades.

Sinema’s absence comes as she is serving as a lead negotiator on bipartisan infrastructure talks in the hopes of striking a deal on an issue central to President Joe Biden and Harris’ agenda.

6. She could have had someone stating her 'PRESENT vote' for her. Right?

She could have just voted PRESENT, by proxy.

😉

Although a newly broken foot would def be a reason to be absent

8. Well. Then her absence is perfectly understandable & excused.

Thanks for that info.

9. I just wish she'd put out some sort of statement

We shouldn't have to look back at her activities and figure out why she is a no show, she should send out a press release explaining what's up...
