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.

Republicans had seven years to come up with an alternative to Obamacare. Now that they have the keys to the castle, they can’t seem to agree on the best path forward.

I will never understand why, knowing when votes are scheduled, Congress waits until the last minute to pull these things together. But it looks like they’re hoping to schedule a vote on the AHCA tomorrow. The drama could spill into next week.

The American Health Care Act (AHCA) dubbed Ryancare, Trumpcare, GOPcare, and even RINOcare (take your pick), is the first step of three in repealing and replacing Obamacare, so we’re told.

This first bit of legislation can only address tenets of Obamcare that pertain to the budget (see also: reconciliation). Congressional Republicans have...

I love Cracker Barrel. They serve sweet tea, breakfast all day, have perfectly mediocre coffee, and they’re strategically located along major thoroughfares, making them an easy road trip stop.

But the scrumptious country store chain also fired Brad’s wife after eleven years of loyal service, and on Brad’s birthday no less…or...

Rather than focus on Gorsuch’s judicial qualifications and whether he would interpret and apply the law aptly, Democratic Senators on the Judiciary Committee have chosen to spend their allotted time prodding Gorsuch’s political beliefs.
