AZ Dem women leaders call on Emily's List to demand Sinema support ending filibuster





Tweet text:

BREAKING: On day after @KyrstenSinema’s infamous speech defending the filibuster, 70+ Arizona Democratic women leaders release this open letter calling on @EmilysList—Sinema’s #1 contributor—to “immediately make a public demand to Senator Sinema to support ending the filibuster.”








Signers include former city councilmembers and current members of the Arizona Democratic Party executive committee.

The letter, organized through the Arizona Coalition to End the Filibuster, challenges one of the most influential Democratic organizations that still backs Sinema.

2. Emily's List IS all of these signees.

EL is a collective group who influences policies, funding & endorsements.

The women of Emily's List have spoken.

3. I hope National leaders will also send similar letters.

Credibility is on the line for that organization.

4. Most Congresspeople only care what their lobbyists and big donors think

11. There was a study done that showed this to be true

Wishes of constituents had no effect on the voting records of their elected officials. I wish I could provide you with a link, but it was pretty eye opening.

6. I'm guessing they won't respond...

My experience is that Emily's List is built around the theory that more elected women is better than fewer.

7. Sinema & Manchin are likely going down in history as the 2 most hated Dems in at least the last half

century or more.

Also, I wager EL will respond, all your dismissive banter aside.

9. Zel Miller and Joe Lieberman should be included on that list

I think our collective memories on these two have faded, but I think it wise to include those two just for the record.

12. well there are others too, if you go back to the Dixiecrats, BUT Miller & Lieberman will be blasted

past by Manchin and Sinema, especially if:

1 No voter bills passed

2 No BBB Act passed

3 Massive Red Wave in 2022, we lose the House, the Senate and numerous state-wide offices (including key Dem Governors who are safety checks on Rethug controlled chambers at statehouse levels) amplified by Rethugs supressing, gerrymandering, etc (things that the voters bills would have stopped)

4 In 2024, we fail to take back either chamber and we also lose POTUS (extra bonus hate n' rage points it we lose due to nefarious means, especially if Trump or some other shitheel fascist is installed as POTUS due to insanity like popular vote-selected slates of electors are replaced by Rethugs state legislatures' overriding them, etc etc etc)

That above is all a linear line that goes back to Coal & Curtsy blowing up our party and the national in general. The damage Miller and Lieberman ever did pales in comparison.

10. I hope they tell her that Sinema will not receive support on the ground.

Door knockers, staffers, etc.
