The name George Santos, who was a proficient enough liar to get elected to congress in New York, is emblazoned in our memories since his whoppers were ongoing and his actions outrageous. The link in the previous sentence contains a national news report revealing his preposterous lies.
Christian Lamar, a repeat, though losing, Arizona legislative candidate, was just elected as one of three to a low level obscure CD8 Member-at-Large post at the GOP meeting on Saturday, which he will use as a stepping stone for public office. The other two elected to the post were a state legislator and district chairman.
Lamar lacks any credentials, though he was previously charged and convicted of hitting his live-in girlfriend and coming after her with a frying pan while he was intoxicated. This occurred following a fight they had at a casino. Lamar maintained his innocence, despite three courts upholding the conviction. He then ludicrously filed a civil rights lawsuit against the female responding officer, the Phoenix Police Department, the city and other departments over the arrest, claiming his Fifth and 14th Amendment rights were violated and the investigation was maliciously turned against him due to his race and gender. Christian Lamar sought $7 million in damages, which was tossed by a federal judge. Had he won, he would have been made rich on the backs of law-abiding taxpayers, whose votes he continually seeks.
Christian Lamar was also the subject of a civil lawsuit brought by Midland Funding in 2021.
Santos’ election no doubt encouraged arrogant Christian Lamar. We can only hope Arizona voters are smarter than New Yorkers.
Both Lamar and Santos deceptively registered as Republicans. Where is the inter-party vetting process prior to elections? We should be able to expect more.
Though he lost the 2022 state legislative race, not very Christian brags he has never conceded because the votes were “suppressed due to the maladministration & unconstitutional actions by Maricopa County against the votes of LD2.” Lamar sounds like a bonafide walking ego….based on nothing. What does he do to earn a living? Does anyone know? Scam artist doesn’t count.
Lamar, who claims to be a pro-life conservative, previously admitted voting for pro-abortion liberal Barack Obama TWICE when publicly asked about his political background.
Deceptive Christian Lamar tried linking himself to Donald Trump, calling himself a MAGA candidate. That flies in the face of his admission that he twice voted for Obama.
Is this the new AZGOP???? I hope not!
So do I!!
Christian Lamar was recruited by former legislator and losing secretary of state candidate Shawnna Bolick.
All of his other endorsements were pulled, but hers remains. After losing three elections, she must not have future political aspirations.
Christian Lamar is a reason why we have a 31-29 majority. I believe Shawnna Bolick recruited him. I could be wrong.
Justin Wilmeth is the lone Republican representing LD2 in the AZ House. His state Senate GOP seatmate is Steve Kaiser. A dem was reelected to the other House seat. The updated AZ House and Senate member lists are available at azleg.gov.
Obama supporter Christian Lamar who posed as a Republican deservedly lost. And yes, he was recruited by ambitious Bolick, who also lost the SOS’s race.
