Talk about lunatic fringe, Kari Lake, another loser Republican wants to claim another BIG LIE happened like election fraud, and so she runs to the courts for help. Here’s the thing, it won’t help and it won’t work, but she’s grifting the rubes to gain some money out of it anyway. Of course this is how Republicans operate. They claim some big thing that makes them out to be the victim, and then they run to the rubes to support their victimhood. It’s usually some far flung court challenge that gets them to pay up, you know, the one where they say they won’t give up without a fight etc, etc, etc. It never works, and they can easily pay some rube lawyer 2500.00 bucks to file the frivolous nonsense suit and then get 20 million out of supporters for it. Add it up, the money is the object, not the horserace.
Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake on Friday announced that she had filed an election challenge, alleging that the total number of illegal votes was greater than her opponent’s margin of victory.
Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs was certified as the winner of the state’s gubernatorial contest earlier this month. State law requires that election results be first certified before a candidate may file a challenge.
Lake announced the suit via Twitter in the Maricopa County Superior Court with a screenshot of the filing being placed at the court’s petition drop off location.
In the filing, Lake asserts that “[t]he number of illegal votes cast in Arizona’s general election on November 8, 2022 far exceeds the 17,117 vote margin.”
She further contends that “thousands of Republican voters were disenfranchised as a result of Maricopa County election officials’ misconduct in connection with the widespread tabulator or printer failures at 59% of the 223 vote centers in Maricopa County.”
The former conservative media personality has long asserted that the state’s election system is mired in voter fraud and that it had handed the 2020 presidential contest to President Joe Biden.
