While Kyrsten Sinema was talking about her "love" for Russell Pearce, Sinema was also pretending to be latina.

Sinema lied to the National Association of Latino Elected Officials and said that she was Latina. In 2010 and 2011, Sinema went to NALEO conferences on scholarships that only Latinos received.

Last month, at the NALEO conference- where President Obama and Mitt Romney spoke- she was presented to thousands of national latinos as a Latino candidate and "one to watch."

Sinema, who is white, has changed her story in order to cover up her lies. At first she said that this was NALEO's mistake but they made it clear that they "rely heavily on self-identification."

NALEO's records are clear that Sinema was the liar- "records indicated NALEO contacted Sinema's legislative staff in advance of the 2011 entry and a staff member said Sinema was Hispanic."

Then Sinema tried to defend herself with the classic 'some of my best friends are Latino' response. Without any friends in the Latino community in Arizona, Sinema pushed a friend in Texas to say that Sinema had a "latina heart."

Kyrsten Sinema's heart is not Latina- it's rotten.

Sinema lost support amongst Hispanics in Arizona by teaming up with Russell Pearce but she thought she could get away with fooling other Latinos into thinking she was one of them- shame on her.

Meanwhile, some Democrats- who aren't pretending to be Latino- are really reaching out to the community.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
