It’s unclear to whom the Arizona Democrat’s message was directed — if anyone — but the image drew an immediate backlash from progressives on Twitter, who accused her of flouting contempt for her critics.
The ring, with the words “F— off,” was featured in the foreground of the photo. Sinema shared the image using social media functions that make images available to see for 24 hours.
Progressive Democratic party officials in Arizona also weighed in disapprovingly.
Sinema purchased such a ring, which sells for $30 at Frances, a popular Phoenix boutique she frequents.
“We do not comment on Kyrsten’s clothing or physical appearance,” Sinema’s spokeswoman, Hannah Hurley, said.
“Arizona’s senior Senator is now telling voters to ‘F*ck off’ for asking for a living wage,” Arizona Democrat Michael Slugocki, vice chair of the state Democratic Party, lashed out against Sinema on Monday.
