The liberal wing of the Democratic Party seems to be nearing its breaking point with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema.
Over the weekend, members of the non-profit Living United for Change in Arizona, or LUCHA, followed Sinema, D-Ariz., into a bathroom at Arizona State University.
Activists recorded and shouted their grievances at her for not supporting more accommodating immigration reforms.
Progressives' frustration with Sinema go beyond Arizona voters. A Saturday Night Live skit portrayed her as the senator derailing legislation central to the Biden administration, including the $3.5 trillion human infrastructure package.
Sinema has said that is too expensive for her vote, but hasn’t said what she would support.
In this week's episode of The Gaggle, an Arizona politics podcast, hosts Yvonne Wingett Sanchez and Ronald J. Hansen, speak with Emily Kirkland, executive director of Progress Arizona, a progressive community nonprofit. She's breaking down why the left is angry with Sinema and what they're doing about it.
