Democrat Senate contender Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona mocked Arizonans as “crazy,” as shown in video of a 2011 Texas event.
Sinema told the group she wanted to teach them what they could to to “stop your state from becoming Arizona.”
The Phoenix Business Journal reported in 2006 on then-recent comments she made to 944 magazine calling conservative Republicans “Neaderthals” and blasting stay-at-home moms as “leeching off their husbands.”
The full comment about moms read, according to the Phoenix New Times, “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life.
Sinema later attempted to explain away the comments by claiming they were somewhat tongue in cheek and sarcastic.
