Sinema goes on profane rant against stay-at-home moms in unearthed interview

In one 2006 interview that surfaced this week, however, the Arizonan takes aim at another target: stay-at-home mothers.

She sat down for an interview with 944, a local magazine, when the topic touched on women who choose domestic life over a career.

“These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bulls***,” Sinema said. “I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?”

Shortly after her comments were published, she attempted to walk them back as part of an intended spoof.
