Kari Lake-Linked Tech Firm Wreaking Campaign Finance Havoc
"Questions have been raised about a series of apps that are providing information on Arizona’s conservative candidates. In fact, thanks to the Trump campaign’s ex-chief operating officer and financial patron to Arizona gubernatorial aspirant Kari Lake, the Grand Canyon State has a whole slew of them. The app Superfeed Technologies developed for Lake appears to be the most popular of the four apps which the Phoenix-based firm has developed for GOP candidates in Arizona—seemingly free of charge." [...] One problem: Arizona campaign finance records show no record of Lake’s campaign—or any political committee—having paid Superfeed for this service, despite the company explicitly describing its work. And that, according to election lawyer James Barton, would make the app’s operation a violation of state contribution rules. “In some states, corporations and unions can contribute directly to campaigns. That’s not the case in Arizona,” Barton told The Daily Beast. “They may have for-free promoted her, and if that’s the case, that’s illegal, because that would be an in-kind contribution from a company.” [...] In personal financial reports Lake filed with the state earlier this year, she reported receiving compensation for work as a “communication advisor” to FeedMe, Inc. The forms do not specify the amount of the commission, except that it exceeded $1,000. [...] Arizona corporate records, and filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, show that FeedMe was an old moniker that Superfeed abandoned more than a year before Lake made her disclosure. Why Lake, whose campaign did not respond to multiple requests for comment from The Daily Beast, used a defunct name for the company in the official filing is unclear. The address Superfeed lists on its website is the same UPS Store which Lake identified in the disclosure as the location of her and her husband’s personal businesses. FeedMe, now Superfeed, first gained attention in 2019, when The New York Times described it as a venture of the right-wing news site Western Journal. But when The Daily Beast contacted Western Journal founder Floyd Brown, the longtime conservative operative claimed he was no longer involved with the firm, and said the operation is in the hands of former Arizona state treasurer Jeff DeWit."
