Big news is expected out of Yuma County, Arizona regarding the investigation into 2020 election fraud, according to Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake.

“Just got a tip that there are some BIG developments in the Election Corruption Investigation in Yuma County, Arizona,” Lake tweeted out Friday. “Possibly including Law Enforcement raids on non-profits potentially involved in ballot trafficking.”

The former journalist did not provide any additional information about the forthcoming developments, but the announcement came just one week after the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office released examples of the types of fraud the department had discovered that took place during the 2020 presidential election.

“The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) and the Yuma County Recorder’s Office (YCRO) are working together to actively examine cases of voting fraud from the 2020 General Election and now a recent pattern of fraudulent voter registration forms leading up to the 2022 Primary Election,” the sheriff’s office noted in a May 11 press release, adding that there are currently 16 cases of voter or registration fraud under investigation.

According to YCSO, incidents uncovered thus far have included: voting fraudulently under another person’s name, falsifying voter registrations, voting multiple times and/or in multiple jurisdictions, requesting and submitting an absentee ballot without the knowledge of the voter in question, and obtaining an absentee ballot from a voter and either filling it in for them and forging their signature or illegally telling them who to vote for.

“The majority of voter fraud cases in Yuma County are related to duplicate voting (typically charged as illegal voting and false voter registration),” the sheriff’s office clarified. “Under Arizona law, illegal voting is a class 5 or class 6 felony. A person found guilty faces up to 2 or 2.5 years in prison, fines, restitution, loss of voting rights, and/or probation.”

With the recent release of Dinesh D’Souza’s “2000 Mules,” a documentary that delves into ballot trafficking during the 2020 election, the mainstream narrative of what took place that November has been called into question yet again – especially in Yuma County.

D’Souza, in a May 16 appearance on the “Fearless with Jason Whitlock” podcast, noted, “The mule that Greg Phillips interviewed in the movie is from Yuma, Arizona.” 

Adding that he believed it was his film that spurred YCSO’s recent investigations, D’Souza outlined the path forward for holding those guilty of election fraud accountable, stating, “There needs to be an investigation, people need to be arrested, a larger organization of this needs to be unraveled and then the next steps of action can be taken because I’m pretty sure this goes pretty high up the totem pole.”
