Whether it was claiming that it is OK to strip mine uranium because the Earth is 6000 years old and is doing fine, that people should think of more ways to help the wealthy, that trees in Arizona should be destroyed because they suck water out of Arizona's water supply, or even crazier, she's been embarrassing her district and her state for years.
She's still going for the crazy, as this article from The Payson Roundup from last week illustrates.
From the article, written by Pete Aleshire -
State Sen. Sylvia Allen called for a state struggle against federal authority in a wide-ranging appearance last week before about 50 members of the Payson Tea Party gathered at Tiny’s Restaurant.
...she decried the mostly federally funded Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System as “socialized medicine.” AHCCCS provides coverage for about 30 percent of the residents of Gila County.
“We need to tighten this program up and have people pay for babies. That’s not life and death. They won’t let you charge (the patients) a penny for that care. That’s the socialized direction we’ve gone in for 50 years.
Sen. Allen also decried various efforts to increase voter turnouts, with things like mail-in ballots and online voter registration.
Now to be fair to Senator Allen, I have to leave open the possibility that she isn't crazy.
She may just be someone who revels in pure ignorance while relying on party talking points to get her through contact with actual voters.
