ROUND-UP: Private Jets, “Howard Hughes” Security, Dodging Questions, Terrible Fundraising…Kyrsten Sinema Making Headlines For All The Wrong Reasons

Sinema’s Window to Run for Re-Election is Rapidly Closing As She Continues Facing Scrutiny for Luxury Spending Scandals

Kyrsten Sinema’s excessive luxury campaign spending, continued European travel billed to her campaign, and abuse of taxpayer funds on private planes are drawing major attention – as is her slowed fundraising – as she continues to refuse answers about her re-election plans. Sinema latest FEC filings from her campaign and her PAC show an unprecedented (and strange) amount of money for security, including a third “security” vehicle in just a few years, prompting some to call her “Howard Hughes level paranoid.” Meanwhile, the window for Sinema to collect 42,000 signatures to get on the ballot is rapidly narrowing by the day.

“As Sinema’s reelection window closes, it’s clearer than ever that no one in Arizona wants her to run,” said Sacha Haworth, senior advisor of Replace Sinema PAC. “Sinema used to rail against politicians who abused their positions for personal gain, and now she’s billing the taxpayers for private planes and jetting off to Europe on donors’ dimes every chance she gets. Is it any wonder Arizonans of every political stripe are sick of her?”
