Democrat Kyrsten Sinema boasts of backing from corrupt politician who helped bring down Arizona housing market

Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, the criminal defense lawyer running for a Congressional seat in Arizona’s Ninth Congressional District, is touting her endorsement from a Far-Left lawmaker who was at the heart of the financial crisis that brought Arizona homeowners to their knees and destroyed the state’s economy.

Sinema was touting late last week a fundraising letter from Barney Frank, the disgraced Congressional Democrat who retired this year rather than face a tough re-election he would have likely lost. In the October 9 letter, Frank said, in part:

My friend Kyrsten Sinema will face her biggest decision this Friday and how much money she raises today will determine the size of her [advertising] buy.
Can you help Kyrsten Sinema so she can stay on the air and fight back? Kyrsten needs you today.
Thank you for all that you do! Together, we can help Kyrsten Sinema win.
On to November,
Barney Frank

While most candidates would hide support from Barney Frank, that letter was found on Sinema’s own website!

So who is Barney Frank? Called a “subprime enabler” in the “government-mandated housing bubble” by Forbes magazine, and “Fannie Mae’s Patron Saint” by the Wall St. Journal, Frank is the man who for 20 years protected Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from reform, while pocketing campaign money from its lobbyists. He even helped his then-partner get a job at Fannie Mae.

The results of his protection include the taxpayer bailouts of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which have directly cost the taxpayers $140 BILLION, according to a liberal media site—many say the amount is actually far higher. But the real cost of letting Fannie and Freddie run wild has been felt across Arizona, in foreclosures, closed businesses, high unemployment and a devastated construction sector. Thanks Barney. No wonder they say Kyrsten is extreme.

But what did Frank say when the Bush Administration tried to reform Fannie and Freddie in 2003, several years BEFORE the crash? As the NY Times quoted him:

“These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis.” said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. “The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”

Oops. A few years later, Frank was proven wrong, but the price was paid by Arizonans and other Americans. Franks, then safe in a gerrymandered Massachusetts Congressional seat, kept fighting reform! His “Dodd-Frank” financial reform law, incredibly, enshrined the biggest banks as too big to fail (and thus guaranteed future bailouts) and did not even address Fannie or Freddie. They remain unreformed today.

Sure he helped destroy Arizona’s economy. But he can help Sinema raise money for her negative ads from Far-Left out-of-state activists. So rather than give Frank the scorn he deserves, she ties herself to him in a shameless fundraising pitch.

She’s hoping you won’t notice. Remember that when you vote, and send Sinema and Frank a message they will never forget: Vote Vernon Parker for Congress TODAY, for jobs and economic growth.

    One problem with this here article. Ms. Sinema bragged about being a criminal attorney who defended murderers, one of the highest honors our society provides in its efforts to protect all of our rights. She graduated in 2006 from law school. Just check out the Maricopa County Courts to see ZERO documents related to her, not over 100, as you’d expect from a good criminal defense attorney, not 50, not 10, not even 2. ZERO. Just click this link:

    Now this does not mean the lady lacks experience with the Arizona legal system. No, no, no, & again no. She has more experience than any four of us non-attorneys combined. Why just look here:

    There’s no evidence that she has any experience as a defense attorney. By contrast, it’s hard to imagine someone with more experience as a defendant.

    Let’s not forget about the controversy surrounding Barney Frank over a homosexual prostitution ring run out of his D.C. digs. Of course, Frank denied any knowledge of it and claimed that his “partner” was running the ring. Suuuuuuuuuure he had no knowledge of it! I believe Frank was reprimanded by Congress over the incident. Good to know that Sinema likes to keep such upstanding company!

  3. Do Bawney Fwank and Kyrsten Enema wear the same size bra???

    • You do seem to have a fixation on this stuff.
      Generally a pretty strong sign of repressed homosexuality.

      Come out of the closet zoo, it’ll do you some good.

      You can stand side by side with Babeu.

      • Conservative American says:

        Sounds like the voice of experience, Jeff. Tell us about the good that coming out of the closet did for you, Jeff! 😉

  4. I looked for these cases but did not find anything 1218 pm 10/16/2012.

    • Traffic violations?

      BWAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA.

      • Conservative American says:

        Um, hate to have to tell you this, Jeff, but most of those cases on the page that azcowpoke linked to are OHTER people with the last name “Sinema”, LOL! Azcowpoke was just pointing to a place to look.

        On the other hand all of these FIFTEEN cases, listed by Mitchell Wachtel, ARE specific to Krysten Sinema!

    Krysten Sinema also has the support of Echo Magazine!

    “Kyrsten Sinema
    Former state lawmaker would make history if elected to U.S. House.”

    “Congressional District 9
    Kyrsten Sinema’s campaign could make congressional history”

    “If she’s elected to the U.S. House, Kyrsten Sinema will make history as the first openly bisexual woman to serve in the Congress.”

    “But the former state lawmaker has been part of history before when she co-chaired Arizona Together, the 2006 campaign that defeated Proposition 107, a ballot initiative that would have prohibited the state from recognizing same-sex marriages or civil unions. It’s the only time that such a measure has been defeated at the ballot box.”

    “The Arizona Together campaign victory is one of the proudest days of my life,” Sinema said.”

    “Since then, Sinema said she’s consulted with other states where marriage equality has been an election issue. “We have to stop the anti-marriage initiatives,” she said.”

    “During seven years in the Legislature, Sinema said she worked on legislation for domestic partnerships and adoption rights for gays and lesbians and against SB 1070.”

    What is Echo Magazine?

    “Though metropolitan Phoenix has a few local gay newspapers and magazines, this is the staple local gay publication.”

    http://www.yelp.com/biz/echo-magazine-phoenix

    If Echo Magazine is promoting Krysten Sinema as an “openly bisexual woman” and an advocate of homosexual “marriage”, then they have made those things public, political issues which are fair game for everyone else to address! DADT is over!
