Talk is cheap…actions matter: Kari Lake revealed as Republican impostor who praised Obama’s leftist pick Merrick Garland for the U.S. Supreme Court
Former news reader Kari Lake has entered Arizona’s governor’s race, characterizing herself as a “conservative” Republican. Her record tells a different story. Using her married name Kari L. Halperin records show she donated to both John Kerry and Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns and getting testy when asked about her political switch as reported by leftist Mediaite.
She has bizarrely compared herself to Ronald Reagan who was once a democrat before seeing the light — a path she took in reverse. Kari Lake, who has honed her skills on camera after years of reading teleprompter scripts on Channel 10, is no Ronald Reagan, switching instead from Republican to a democrat. Lake is a political opportunist who has never held political office and has nothing to recommend her for Arizona’s top job. When asked about her political duplicity, she classily retorted, “Who gives a crap?” according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Kari Lake donated $850 to both John Kerry’s and Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns in 2004 and 2008, leaving the Republican Party, reregistering as an Independent before switching again to become a democrat in 2008. She opportunistically switched back when she thought it would benefit her.
Lake has also hired Mark Buse, John McCain’s senior advisor, to run her campaign.
It’s no mystery why the Republican-loathing local newspaper headlined its report following Saturday’s Election Integrity rally featuring former President Donald Trump, “Lake stands out among GOP candidates.” The blatant scheme at play is to make the least credible candidate appear to be the frontrunner. Don’t be conned by the conniving, leftist Arizona Republic.
There is too much at stake to trust a manipulative political charlatan with running the state of Arizona which now has two democrat U.S. Senators for the first time since Ernest McFarland (born in 1894) and Carl Hayden (born in the pre-statehood Arizona Territory in 1878) represented the state. Hayden had been the territorial sheriff and first ran for congress in 1911 in anticipation of Arizona’s 1912 statehood. Both Hayden and McFarland joined the military during World War I.
Throwing good sense to the winds is a recipe for disaster for the state of Arizona. Seeing Red AZ endorses State Treasurer Kimberly Yee in the AZ governor’s race. She does far more than reading prepared scripts on a teleprompter. Her solid conservative credentials are impeccable.*
This is faux “conservative” Kari Lake — who was actually a registered democrat — endorsing leftist Merrick Garland, Barack Obama’s pick to replace conservative Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court:

* Since this endorsement of State Treasurer Kimberly Yee was posted, Yee announced her decision to remain as State Treasurer, and will campaign for a second term in that office. We endorse Kimberly Yee as she campaigns to retain that post where she has done a remarkable job during a most difficult time. Our position on Kari Lake has not changed.
