So-called conspiracy theories about former President George W. Bush appear in a 2002 email reportedly sent by Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema.
What does the email say?
The email begins with an invitation from Simena to protest over various Bush policies.
“Join together in Solidarity for A Protest Against President Bush on Friday, September 27th,” the email states. “Meet at Patriot Square Park at 3 p.m. (tentative time) then march to the downtown Civic Center Plaza, where we’ll protest Bush’s well…pretty much everything the man does is worthy of protest.”
The email’s goes on to list a barrage of accusations against the former president, including:
● “Putting arsenic in our water.”
● “Setting up secret tribunals to persecute innocent people for indefinite periods of time without notifying their families.”
● “Establishing Operation TIPS in which your mailman is rewarded for tattling on you and your neighbor.”
● “Crowning himself King of the World for Life. (oh wait, he’s not taking over the world for another year...”
● “Stealing all of our civil liberties in the name of something called freedom (it’s okay, I wasn’t using those liberties anyway).”
● “Creating an Office of Homeland Security, then stripping employees of their workplace rights (supposedly in the name of security, but in reality just to gut workers’ rights.”
● “Working to destroy all natural land and forestry in the United States by oil drilling and old growth-tree logging.”
TheBlaze reached out to Sinema’s campaign for a comment but did not hear back.
The email was posted on Twitter by The Reagan Battalion and lists Sinema as the sender.
The email revelation comes on the heels of other comments and videos in which Sinema called her own state "crazy" and the "meth lab of democracy."
Sinema, who is a U.S. representative for Arizona's 9th Congressional District, is challenging Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who is retiring. The close race is considered a key one for Democrats in their hopes to flip the Senate.
Sinema is a former Green Party activist who has worked to revamp her image into a centrist Democrat who wants to work with both parties.
