Most pesky flakes vanish with a couple of applications of Head & Shoulders shampoo. But the one named Jeff keeps returning leaving unsavory residue in his path.
In the case of Jeff Flake, there is the engorged ego that accompanies the affliction. His modus operanti places his inflated opinion of himself on full display. We were exposed to his shirtless selfies in 2011 when he brought a tripod and camera along on his solitary, week long trip to a deserted Pacific island, where he narcissistically preened, lit fire without matches, and caught crabs.
Hungering for the increasingly elusive limelight he so craves, Flake, who deceptively ran as a Republican, is once again contributing to a Democrat’s campaign and informing the immediate world. Enraged by former 6-term Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s reentry into the Maricopa County sheriff’s race, Flake cut Democrat Paul Penzone a $100 check — mere peanuts compared to the $3 Million Socialist billionaire George Soros, who disdains national borders, contributed to Penzone in 2016. In the memo line the single-term petulant former senator printed, “County Over Party.” Then, of course, he put it out on Twitter.
Immediately after Penzone was sworn in as sheriff, in an obvious nod to his benefactor, Soros, he referred to illegal alien invaders as, “guests,” which unfazed amnesty proponent Flake.
This is far from flaky Flake’s first foray into the frigid waters where soulless Democrats swim. In 2017, he contributed $100 —which the frustrated photog memorialized — to now-Alabama Sen. Doug Jones, a pro-abortion liberal. Jones won in the deep red state following the politically motivated, nearly 40-year-old, unsubstantiated and impossible to verify allegations, never previously raised in Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore’s judicial campaigns, that he made overtures to women while they were teens and he was a young adult. In that check’s memo, Flake wrote “Country Over Party.”
Few Arizona Republicans will forget that RINOcrat Flake and his mentor John McCain each stated neither they nor their families would vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump for President. Trump’s opponent was Hillary Clinton.
