Activists who helped elect Kyrsten Sinema launch CrowdPAC to fund a primary challenger

Arizona activists have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for a potential 2024 Democratic primary challenger to Sen. Kyrsten Sinema if she does not vote to end the filibuster or continues to obstruct President Joe Biden's agenda.

A committee of Arizona organizers who have helped turn the state blue since 2018, when Sinema narrowly won her seat, launched the conditional fundraiser to pressure the senator to stop undermining her party's agenda. Sinema opposes the Democrats' $3.5 trillion spending bill, balking at both the price tag and key measures like drug pricing reform and tax hikes on the wealthy and corporations. She has also vehemently defended the filibuster, which has prevented any progress on the Democrats' voting rights legislation as well as a minimum wage increase, immigration reform, gun violence measures, police reform, LGBTQ protections, protections for workers' right to unionize and other bills that have already passed the Democratic-led House.

"It's time to send a message that she can't ignore," the group's CrowdPAC page says. "Either Sen. Sinema votes to end or reform the Jim Crow filibuster this year or we fund a primary challenge to replace her with someone who will."

State Sen. Martin Quezada, a Democrat who is backing the effort, told Salon that for sitting lawmakers, "the only thing that really gets you motivated to start seriously considering changing your views on things is if you are facing a threat to your seat."

If Senator Sinema does not support President Biden's Agenda, and continues to work with McConnell to help create a fascist United States, she has less than zero chance of being re-elected in 2024. Her political career will be over, permanently, and she'll end up curtsying to sexist RW pigs at lobbying firms, in her desperate searches to gain employment, until she gives up and accepts a position as spokesperson for the Log Cabin Republicans.

*snarf* AZ Sen. Wendy Rogers cues up the crazy (again) with her latest call to decertify

the election

Sept. 22, 2021

Opinion: The audit isn't out yet and already Sen. Wendy Rogers is calling for Arizona's election to be decertified. Curiously, she declines to cite a law that would allow her to void our vote
snip---
Quoting no less than John F. Kennedy, the letter calls on the Arizona Senate to take action based on the not-yet released results of an audit conducted and paid for by the Trump conspiracy crowd.

And it implores senators to consider the laughable conclusions of a door-to-door canvass that produced not one shred of actual evidence of fraud.

And to consider the scientific stylings of famed CueCat inventor/treasure hunter Jovan Hutton Pulitzerand his “kinematic artifact detection,” which isn’t actually a real thing.

Rogers and Karen Fann are bat dung outhouse rat squirrels in the head unhinged. They should be severely punished for their deranged stupid. Now, the GOP AZ State Government chapter of QAnon crazy is going to waste even more taxpayer money trying to prove that the earth is flat.

Arizona Taxpayers Forced To Pay For Voting Machines Ruined by GOP ‘Audit’

Karen Fann, president of the GOP-led state Senate, called the decision to place the burden on taxpayers a ‘win.’
snip----
However, the Arizona Republic reported that Maricopa County reached a deal on Friday that would let the GOP lawmakers off the hook for the millions in damages. As part of the deal, Maricopa County will pay the costs of replacing the voting machines from its taxpayer-funded budget — despite the Senate’s indemnification agreement that promised taxpayers wouldn’t foot the bill for any costs stemming from the audit effort.

In return for dropping the costs, Arizona’s Republican attorney general backed off his own threat to withhold $700 million in annual state funding to the county — or nearly half of its operating budget — because Maricopa County had not complied with one of numerous subpoena demands. Republicans in the Arizona Senate had subpoenaed routers from the county as part of their audit, but the county refused to turn them over, saying it could pose a security risk, according to the Arizona Republic’s report.

Now, despite dropping its demand that the Senate pay for the ruined voting machines, Maricopa County will still have to answer questions about the routers, the Arizona Republic reported. But the Senate agreed to have the review done by former Rep. John Shadegg (R-AZ) rather than by Cyber Ninjas, the firm that conducted the audit and is run by an avid Donald Trump supporter who has promoted lies about election fraud.

Even after their fraudit failed to produce the results they prayed for.
