GOP nominee for governor in Arizona, Kari Lake, stalwartly defended the cause for election integrity on Twitter on Sunday, criticizing the “Fake News” for ignoring “Fake Elections.” As the potential certification of Maricopa County’s dubious election results looms on Monday morning, Lake dug in her heels.
She wrote, “Arizonans have no Faith & Trust in our Elections. Our Election Officials are incompetent (…or worse)[.] They have failed us. The Fake News ignores our Fake Elections and expect us to just ‘move on.’ We won’t.”
President Donald Trump even weighed in on the situation this week, ripping the supposedly broken voting machines in “Republican Districts on Election Day.”
He wrote on Truth Social, “Mechanics sent in to ‘FIX’ them made them worse. Kari had to be taken to a Democrat area, which was working perfectly, to vote. Her opponent ran the Election. This is yet another criminal voting operation – SO OBVIOUS. Kari Lake should be installed Governor of Arizona. This is almost as bad as the 2020 Presidential Election, which the Unselect Committee refuses to touch because they know it was Fraudulent!”
On Sunday, Maricopa County attorney Rachel Mitchell penned a response to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office, where Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Liddy demanded answers regarding reports of election irregularities and potential improprieties.
The letter claimed, for example, that only “1% of ballots cast were affected” by widespread printer problems and that “no voter was disenfranchised because of the difficulty the County experienced with some of its printers.”
“The Maricopa Board of Supervisors are lawless,” the Kari Lake War Room wrote in response to the letter.
An Election Integrity Network poll of election volunteers in the Arizona midterms shared by Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington revealed that just over 84 percent of those surveyed were “not at all confident” that the election results in the Grand Canyon State were “completely accurate and honest.”
Despite the official narrative, Arizonans seem to be very concerned about the sanctity of their votes at the ballot box, and Kari Lake and her team are not backing down in the fight to implement election reform.
“We have a County Board of Supervisors acting in open defiance of elected officials, candidates, election law, and their constituents,” the Kari Lake War Room continued on Twitter on Monday morning. “This center will not hold.”
Lake herself added on Twitter, “America will NOT survive if we don’t demand Election Reform NOW.”
