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.

In Louisiana, Michigan, Kentucky, and Oregon, individuals requesting public records...

It’s that time again; time for pumpkin spiced everything, college football, candy corn, and cheesy political ads.

As we enter campaign season, we have an early contender for worst political ad ever. Though it’s no “I’m not a witch” (still my favorite), this one is so very terrible in other ways.

A very flustered Nancy Pelosi was met by an angry bunch of DREAMers at a DREAMer event in San Francisco Monday. The crowd was shouting, demanding to know where she was when they asked for help, to which Pelosi replied, “you don’t know what you’re talking about.

I saw no less than forty different takes lambasting former White House Press Secretary’s Sunday Night Emmy cameo.

The award show, its attendees, and the media covering this self-aggrandizing party, which is now drenched in left-leaning politics, was shocked, SHOCKED! that Spicer would show his face in such a venue, let...

Just last week, Bernie Sanders rolled out his Medicare for All bill. Sanders and the bill’s advocates railed against the current healthcare system as ineffectual, forgetting (or hoping the public has forgotten) that it’s the product of Democrat ideas and votes.

In Sanders’ fantasy world, single-payer system is the only cure...
