Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is in it to win it, and the people of Arizona are in it with her. “My Plan A is to win our election,” Lake stated recently on “War Room” with Steve Bannon. “We have all of the evidence in front of us. It is ironclad.”
Lake has relentlessly been fighting Maricopa County election officials and her Democrat opponent, Katie Hobbs, via a lawsuit that is set to hit the appeals court on Feb. 1. The suit challenges the validity of the 2022 midterm elections, citing evidence of massive irregularities surrounding ballot-counting, chain of custody documentation, and tabulator issues.
On Sunday, Lake held a massive “Save Arizona Rally” in Scottsdale that drew huge crowds, prompting the overflow to gather outside the building. Lake tweeted, “Our movement is so huge we ended up having to do TWO rallies tonight. I love you, Arizona!”
Lake touched on the countless problems that plagued Election Day processes in Maricopa County, pointing out one of the most shocking claims from her suit: “Let’s start with 300,000 ballots with ZERO chain of custody,” she told the crowd. “I’m going to explain this in slow motion, in easy terms, for the simpletons in the media back there. Testimony from our whistleblowers down at Runbeck proves that. 300,000 ballots lacked chain of custody.”
As reported by RSBN, Lake’s legal team recently argued that Maricopa’s problems were “massive, widespread, and lasted all day” on Election Day, with attorney Kurt Olsen presenting evidence that more than 217,000 ballots were rejected by vote center tabulators.
A January presentation given to the Arizona Senate Committee on Elections from We the People AZ Alliance Chair Shelby Busch highlighted bombshell evidence of tabulator problems. Busch told the committee that on Election Day in Maricopa County, tabulators allegedly failed at 235 times the Election Assistance Commission’s regulated failure rates, per RSBN.
Lake told Bannon, “We’ve really painted these judges into a corner. They have to look at the evidence and they have to apply the law, and if they don’t, their reputation is gone.”
