  •  Here, I hope this doesn't violate anything! (6+ / 0-)

    The e-mail was from Sam Coppersmith.

    We all saw Tea Party Republicans launch false, negative attacks against President Obama and Democrats around the country last cycle.  But now we’re now seeing the same nonsense coming from someone running as a Democrat.

    Incredibly, it’s 2012, and Andrei Cherny is attacking Kyrsten Sinema for opposing George W. Bush's wars.  I’ve heard of triangulation, but that’s ridiculous.  Is his name Andrei Cherny—or Dick Cheney?

    Even worse, he is pretending that her opposition to the Bush wars means she wouldn't fight Al Qaeda. This is typical Republican trash talk from someone who is desperate to get elected. You’ll probably hear lies like that used against President Obama this fall—but did you expect to hear them from a Democrat?

    When Cherny ran for office in California, his attacks were called “really dirty politics,” “blatant race-baiting," “patently false” and “despicable.”  Cherny’s running for office in Arizona this year, but his dirty politics hasn’t changed.  Now, his ‘win-at-all-costs’ campaign is launching false attacks against Sinema.

    Here are some facts:

        * Sinema supported military action against Al Qaeda, and continues to do so.
        * Sinema was against going to war in Iraq and Afghanistan.  She was right—and Cherny is the kind of “Democrat” who would have given George W. Bush a blank check.
        * Invading a country and mounting a military attack on a terrorist group are not the same thing.  For example, US Navy Seals successfully attacked Osama Bin Laden without invading and occupying the nation of Pakistan.

    You’d think a well-connected insider like Cherny would understand facts like these, but his record is clear: Cherny is more interested in false campaign attacks than he is in telling the truth or getting things done for middle class Arizona families. Amazingly, Cherny’s attacks make it clear he supports the Bush-Cheney decision to invade Iraq!  That’s what happens when your only “value” is getting yourself elected—to something or other, in some state or other.

    Unlike Cherny, Kyrsten Sinema has a record of bringing people together to get things done for Arizona families. The Arizona Republic called her the Senator who “most often opposed” Russell Pearce. Last year, the legislature passed Sinema’s bill to help military spouses quickly find work when their family is stationed in Arizona. That’s her record: delivering results for families.

    It's quite a difference.

    Middle class Arizonans want solutions to our nation’s problems, not more of Cherny’s dishonest distortions.  If you want to stop Cherny’s false attacks, support our campaign today and then forward this email to your friends and family and urge them to do the same.

    Thank you.
