Progressive Firm launches Kyrsten Sinema on the pavement
Senator Kyrsten Sinema was dumped by a big progressive business after quitting the Democratic Party.
Leading progressive digital company Authentic dropped Kyrsten Sinema as a customer after the Arizona senator announced she was quitting the Democratic Party, according to a person familiar with the company.
Authentic has been representing Sinema for years. But the company experienced an internal revolt over its work for the senator earlier this year as it voted against several of the Biden administration’s initiatives and refused to support the overhaul of filibuster rules to move forward. voting rights legislation.
The digital firm abandoning Sinema is an example of the problems it could face. Sinema was not dropped because she is no longer a Democrat. Many liberal and progressive companies work for Bernie Sanders and he is also a freelancer.
It is the kind of independent that Sinema has become that poses a problem. Sinema is a pro-corporate obstructionist who cares more about her brand and protecting her seat than any sort of ideological agenda.
Progressives rallied around Sinema and backed his Senate campaign. They are a big reason why she won.
Without the Ddemocratic and progressive support, Sinema is not just a senator without a party. She is a senator who may not have the basic infrastructure to win.
Kyrsten Sinema has chosen this path, and it could lead her straight out of the Senate.
