GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s election lawsuit against Maricopa County and Democrat opponent Katie Hobbs is on the fast track to potential vindication. According to the Kari Lake War Room, Lake’s appeal is scheduled to be heard before the court on Feb. 1.
“Do not underestimate @KariLake’s desire to get justice for the people of Arizona,” their account stated. “It doesn’t matter how long it takes. We will see this through.”
According to KGUN9 Tucson, Lake petitioned that her case be handled as a “special action,” which reportedly gave Katie Hobbs a deadline of Jan. 17 to argue against the petition.
Further, the outlet reported that the case was originally set to be heard in March, but that judges in the court agreed to expedite the case and hear it on Feb. 1.
Via RSBN, Lake filed an appeal in early January, while filing a motion to send the appeal straight to the Arizona State Supreme Court. That request, however, was denied.
This next legal move comes after Lake challenged Hobbs and Maricopa County in a 70-page lawsuit that alleged malicious misconduct in the Nov. 4 election, resulting in thousands of disenfranchised voters and countless reports of malfunctioning vote tabulators.
As reported by RSBN, Lake alleged that the number of illegal votes cast in the state far exceeded the slim margin of 17,117 votes that supposedly netted Hobbs a victory in the Grand Canyon State.
As an example, the lawsuit alleged that around 300,000 mail-in ballots had no chain of custody documentation, according to whistleblower accounts. This means that there was no way of knowing if those ballots were legal or not.
Lake has been resolute in her quest to restore election integrity. “Ain’t no stopping us, Arizona!” Lake stated on Twitter this week.
Recently, Lake spoke alongside President Donald Trump at an event in Florida at the president’s home, Mar-a-Lago. Trump recognized Lake’s fight for election transparency and hinted, “Something good is going to happen that’s going to be MUCH BIGGER.”
