The self-proclaimed only true conservative in the Arizona gubernatorial race has been exposed for her donations to Democrats.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
The self-proclaimed “only conservative” in the race for Arizona governor has had her campaign launch derailed by reports of her political donations to Democrats John Kerry and Barack Obama.
Former news anchor Kari Lake announced her candidacy in June, positioning herself as the “only conservative, America First Trump Republican in the race.” But instead of spending the opening weeks of the campaign touting her conservative bona fides, Lake has sparred with local media over her donations to liberal politicians.
Lake on June 15 accused one local reporter of conducting a “hit piece interview” when he attempted to confirm the contributions, saying the line of questioning was “unethical” and “slanted.”
“I just think it’s really interesting that the crux of this interview is about, ‘Wow, she’s donated in the past. Or she might’ve voted Democrat before,'” Lake said. “Who gives a crap? Who cares?”
Lake has stated that she made the donations because she was excited about the first black president and was disenchanted by the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
