About: Kemberlee Kaye

Hi there,

My name is Kemberlee and I’m a Senior Contributing Editor here at Legal Insurrection. I absolutely love my job, our bloggers, our readers, and Professor Jacobson isn’t that bad either. Occasionally, my handiwork is featured elsewhere.

Prior to politicking, I worked in immigration law. An erstwhile grassroots organizer, digital media strategist, campaign lackey, and muckraker, I still dabble in political battles from time to time. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of working with FreedomWorks, Americans for Prosperity, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, and Senator John Cornyn, among others.

I’m madly in love with my husband and adore our daughters. My fluffy sidekick is my spirit animal. And I’m Catholic (by choice). I’m incredibly thankful for the life I’ve been given and that I have the opportunity to share my thoughts with our readers (I truly believe we have one of the internet’s best readerships).

You can reach me anytime at kemberleekaye@gmail.com. I do my best to respond to everyone.

If you were hoping the GOP would make good on their promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, then I have some disappointing news: the latest Republican health...

Progressives utilize several seemingly well-meaning expectations and mantras that ultimately chip away at individual liberty in the name of state oversight. “Transparency” sounds harmless enough, but is it?

I first blogged about Juneteenth last year. As I noted then, the day’s significance is almost criminally under appreciated.

This year though, I’m thrilled to see more national publications commemorating the 19th of June. Juneteenth even received the Heavy treatment.

The Congressional Baseball game is a 108-year-old tradition and one of the best annual showings of bipartisanship.

This year, a day after Rep. Steve Scalise was shot and severely injured during baseball practice, a public display of unity and civility was desperately needed. And that’s exactly what happened.
