Kyrsten Sinema Calls Herself a “Criminal Defense Attorney Who Represents Murderers”

PHOENIX – Tom Morrissey, Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party and retired Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal for the District of Arizona, today called on Democrat Kyrsten Sinema to release the names of all of the murderers she has worked for.

In a 2006 interview, Kyrsten Sinema boasted about her work as a “criminal defense attorney who represents murderers.” (Shawn Macomber, “The Marginalized Mainstream,” The American Spectator, June 14, 2006)

“Today I call on Kyrsten Sinema to fully release her client list of murderers, because who she stands with shouldn’t be a secret,” said Morrissey.

Below is a letter Morrissey sent to Ms. Sinema asking her to stop hiding her client list.

Ms. Kyrsten Sinema
123 E Baseline Rd. D-202
Tempe, AZ 85283 

Dear Kyrsten:

As the former Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal for Arizona, I strongly believe it is important for the people of Arizona and this Congressional district to know whom you stand with.

In a 2006 interview with American Spectator magazine, and while a member of the Arizona Legislature, you proudly boasted that you were a “criminal defense attorney who represents murderers.”

Your voting record is also troubling.

In 2009, you were one of five state representatives to vote against a bill (SB 1253) that adds drive by shooting to the list of specified felonies that are subject to the felony murder classification.  This measure was passed in bipartisan fashion 50-5.

In 2007, you were the Prime Sponsor of HB 2278, a bill to end the death penalty for murderers and rapists.  Luckily your bill wasn’t passed.

In light of your pronouncements of support for murderers I ask you to immediately release your entire client list of any murderers you have represented or currently represent.

Most sincerely,
Tom Morrissey
Arizona Republican Party

    Actually, is there the slightest bit of evidence that Ms. Sinema actually defended anyone accused of a crime, apart perhaps from a law school project? There is not one document related to her name in Maricopa County’s Court. How is this possible? 

    1. @Mitchell Wachtel That is curious . . .

      1. Mitchell Wachtel says:

        @WesternFreePress Bet anything the only defendant she ever represented is herself. To the degree she is great lawyer, as claimed, she’s actually in the forum of conscience one who committed far worse acts.

    She ain’t much of a lawyer, but what a defendant she is! Check this out.
