Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic nominee for Senate in Arizona, led an anti-war group that portrayed American soldiers as skeletons waging “terror” in the Middle East.
Local to Global Justice, a group Sinema co-founded, promoted a 2003 anti-Iraq War protest using flyers that read: “You can help us push back U.S. terror in Iraq and the Middle East.”
The flyers depicted three menacing skeletons, including a gun-toting soldier, looming over a crowd of protesters.
A local anarchist group also participated in the protest, according to CNN, which first reported on the inflammatory flyers.
“Kyrsten comes from a military family and is very proud of her record supporting Arizona’s service members, veterans, and their families,” Sinema spokeswoman Helen Hare told CNN
Sinema is running against Republican Rep. Martha McSally to replace outgoing Republican Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake in a key race for control of the Senate.
