IDCCA President and Kane Co. Democratic Party Chair Mark Guethle Calls Out Kari Lake Fundraising in Illinois

Springfield, IL – In advance of election denier and failed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake visiting St. Charles, Illinois on Sunday, April 28, 2024 to raise money for her run for U.S. Senate in Arizona, Illinois Democratic County Chairs Association President and Kane Co. Democratic Party Chair Mark Guethle released the following statement:

“Kari Lake is a far-right, disinformation spreading, election denier. In addition to Kari Lake, her event is hosted by conspiracy theorists who discuss things like a global world order and share misinformation about vaccines. Sunday’s event is a who’s-who of individuals who don’t represent the values of Kane County or Illinois, and I hope their event is as unsuccessful as Kari Lake’s past legal escapades and her candidacy for office.”

The hosts of Kari Lake’s fundraiser, Michelle and Larry Bettag, were part of the Three Headed Eagle Alliance, an organization that hosts speakers who espouse conspiracies about vaccines, global powers, the Great Reset, and mass surveillance. Kari Lake is a known election denier, Trump acolyte, and soon to be failed candidate for U.S. Senate in Arizona.
