IF you want to sum up the AD71 race in one sentence, use the title of this blog. Matt Rahn is a PHD, Kate Sanchez is a woman without a home.
Voter Registration Records are public record. Sometimes Voter Registration Records reveal a ton of information. In the case of Kate Sanchez, they confirm her lack of employment, dependence on family, and a complete absence of accomplishment.
10/1/2008 – 03/20/2016 – Kate Sanchez was registered Republican at 8 Taiga Trabuco Canyon
This was her parents home. This address was all over the garnishment and bank levy records we wrote about.
Yet according to annulment records, signed under penalty of perjury, Kate said she was living at her first husband’s home he shared with his family for much of 2008 and most of 2009. She first filed papers for annulment 10/30/2009. This means that Kate misrepresented her living situation or she lied to the registrar about her residence when registered to vote. Either one is perjury if proven in a criminal court.

03/21/2016 – 12/29/2021 – Kate Sanchez was registered Republican at 11 Balise Lane Foothill Ranch (this is outside of AD71)
The first question your intrepid blogger has is who paid for her rent? Kate Sanchez was unemployed for most of the time she lived at this address.
In addition, there is nothing reported on her Form 700 for gifts/cash. She had no job at all in 2020 or 2021.
This means that it is quite possible that Sanchez was not able to afford the rent, since she didn’t have a job or any reportable income. My source? Kate Sanchez’ Form 700. (The Form 700 is a financial assets, income disclosure officeholders and candidates have to file under California Law)
Here is where it gets fun:
12/30/2021 – 05/12/2022 – Kate Sanchez was registered Republican at 62 Aliento Rancho Santa Margarita.
It wasn’t until AFTER the new AD 71 lines were drawn that Kate moved into the district.
Kate Sanchez rented a room in a house in Rancho Santa Margarita to establish residency. Kate’s brother, it appears, showed up as being connected to this address. It appears the brother was renting as well. Another possibility is that she did not actually live at this address but used it for cover with which to file.
But WAIT! There’s moooooore!
05/13/2022 – present (as of last week) – Kate Sanchez Registered Republican at 47 Foxtail Lane, Trabuco
This is the current home of Kate’s parents.
It looks like Kate moved back in with them (again) just before the June primary. As of 8/15/22 she has not re-registered to vote anywhere else.
FYI – the Job Kate has that her current boyfriend’s company hired her in to, ain’t much income being reported from it either… the voter registration at her folks house kinda confirms she is still basically unemployed.
So we have a PHD from Temecula running against someone who was unemployed for 2 1/2 years that lives with her folks. But hey! She lives in Orange County!
