As her lies about Latino-gate deepens, Kyrsten Sinema is trying to throw NALEO under the bus. After using them to advance her political career, and taking thousands of dollars of minority scholarships from the,, she is trying to push the blame for her long fabrications on them. Her campaign said that her lies are "NALEO's mistake" but the facts prove that Sinema lied about her ethnicity and is now trying to cover it up.

At first she defended herself by saying that she has a "latina heart" and now they are asking for NALEO and people who actually have latino hearts to shut up and offer their support to "determined non-Latino allies."

That's funny because I don't remember Sinema being an ally of Latinos during the Russell Pearce recall. She told Latinos and Progressives that Russell Pearce was her boss and she teamed up with racists like Al Melvin and Ron Gould to get her anti-immigrant bill passed. Some ally.

Sinema is just lying about her record of lies. She accuses NALEO but her 'smoking tweet' shows that she was lying; she knew that she was being presented as Latino but decided to keep the lie going because it was good for her fundraising.

The newsletters put out by NALEO for years show that Sinema was always listed as a Latino. That doesn't happen by accident; Sinema lied about it to advance her political career.

She is accusing NALEO of lying but they already said that they have records that Sinema or her staff said that she was Latino. They can't release the records because of privacy concerns.

Why doesn't Sinema let them release the records?
Why doesn't Sinema release her membership forms if she put down 'Anglo'?
What is she trying to hide?

The answer is clear: Sinema is lying and she is trying to throw NALEO under the bus. This is the same move she tried with Latinos in 2011 when she piggybacked on SB1070 with anti-immigrant bills.

This may get her nice compliments from Russell Pearce, but she can never say that she is an ally of the Latino community.

She is lying and she is trying to throw NALEO under the bus just like she already did with Hispanics in Arizona. Now it's got us all wondering, what else is Sinema lying about?

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.
