Arizona Secretary of State Adrian Fontes (D) has thrown rainforest shade at the election-denying failed GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake in an interview with MSNBC’s Alicia Menendez.
“Secretary…I gotta ask for your reaction to Kari Lake winning the CPAC straw poll for GOP VP nominee, and the fact that she has not backed off any of the lies that she touted during her race for governor in Arizona,” Menendez asked.
“I’m sorry, who are you talking about?” he replied.
“I don’t know anybody of relevance in Arizona named Kari Lake,” Fontes added.
Since losing the race for governor to Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs in November, Lake has been in a tailspin.
Baseless claims that the election was stolen from her, the delusional former local Fox News anchor continues to push the insane narrative that she’s the “true” governor of Arizona.
The continued rantings of a woman gone mad were on full display at the latest Conservative Political Action Coalition held in National Harbor, MD over the weekend.
Multiple lawsuits were rejected by Arizona courts as frivolous – leading to Lake being ordered to reimburse Arizona’s actual Governor Katie Hobbs over $30,000 in legal fees.
But like a dog with a bone, Lake can’t seem to quit while she’s behind.
During her unhinged CPAC speech, the former anchor went all in on conspiracy theories, with allegations of trying to be run out of politics with a bribe.
“They came to my door and they tried to bribe me out of getting out of politics,” she told the crowd. “I’m telling you this because this is how disgusting politics is. A mom who runs for office and they’re afraid of me?” – The Independent
Lake also called Steve Bannon a “stud muffin” [insert vomit emoji here].
Secretary Fontes appeared on MSNBC to talk about the importance of remembering Bloody Sunday when state police brutally beat and attacked 600 voting and civil rights activists marched arm-in-arm across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama 58 years ago today.
In the aftermath of the 2020 election, Republican-controlled states have introduced legislation to restrict and suppress democracy and voting rights propelled by former President Donald Trump’s “Big Lie.”
“We’re still in this fight,” Fontes told Menendez. “There are still people out there who claim the mantle of American and will put their own political party above their fellow countryman’s fundamental right. A right that people here in the United States have died for.”
