NOW: Kari Lake Pulls the Trigger in Arizona Election Battle

( – Following through on a promise she made to her many supporters, Arizona gubernatorial candidate and former television news anchor Kari Lake has filed a lawsuit claiming the election there was illegally certified.

According to the conservative National Review in a new report headlined “Kari Lake Sues Maricopa County in Last-Ditch Effort to Overturn Arizona Gubernatorial Defeat“:

“On Friday, defeated Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake filed a lawsuit with the Arizona Superior Court that challenges certification of her 2022 election results, claiming that Maricopa County created a “debacle” leading to her electoral defeat.

“‘If the process was illegitimate, then so are the results. Stay tuned, folks,’ Lake shared with her nearly one million followers on Twitter Friday evening above a photo of the filing with the caption “LFG.”

“Maricopa County is the largest district in Arizona. It includes Phoenix and its surrounding neighborhoods. Voting tabulation errors due to printer problems on November 8 affected nearly one-third of all polling places in the county.” [emphasis added]

Not surprisingly, Katie Hobbs has a different view.

“Lake’s opponent, the Democrat Katie Hobbs, dismissed Lake’s latest move as a “sham lawsuit” and publicity stunt. ‘Kari Lake needs attention like a fish needs water — and independent experts and local election officials of both parties have made clear that this was a safe, secure and fair election,’ Hobbs tweeted Friday.” [emphasis added]
