Will Kari Lake Denounce Fellow Republican Tom Horne for Hiring Disgraced Pedophile?


PHOENIX – As Kari Lake is set to appear with Tom Horne, Republican candidate for Arizona State Superintendent of Public Instruction, will she denounce his hiring of former state Rep. David Stringer? Stringer was charged with child sex crimes and was forced to resign after refusing to cooperate with an ethics investigation over his past sex-crime charges. Stringer was also recorded making racist remarks about public school children. Stringer’s victims bravely came forward to police and yet Tom Horne has vehemently defended him and given him a job.

People are now asking if the radical slate of Republican candidates like Blake Masters and Kari Lake will do the decent thing and speak out against this.  

“Kari Lake claims she cares about protecting our children, but how does she square that position with  this disqualifying behavior from a fellow Republican candidate?” asked Josselyn Berry, spokesperson for the Arizona Democratic Party. “Will Lake denounce it or will she stand arm and arm with Horne while allowing a pedophile to work on his campaign for state superintendent? Lake has already gone out of her way to support and endorse anti-Semites and racist conspiracy theorists–Will she add pedophile apologists to that list of friends too?”
