Jeff Flake is a Republican United States Senator from Arizona, winning election to the Senate in 2012, and former United States Representative. He is a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). He has one of the most consistently fiscally conservative voting records of any Congressman, being one of only eight Representatives to receive a 100% rating from the American Conservative Union in 2006.[1] He is especially outspoken regarding the burden of earmarks on the taxpaying public. However, he has broken from many in his party on the issue of the Iraq War. In 2012, Jeff Flake was elected to the Senate seat of Jon Kyl.

He should still be considered a RINO though due his support for homosexuals serving in the military and giving amnesty to illegal immigrants.[2]

Democrats have asked the FBI and the Justice Department to review Flake's campaign activities because voters in Arizona have received robocalls directing voters to the wrong polling locations.[3]
