Kari Lake, an election denier, sues Arizona officials for voting violations

Kari Lake, the defeated Republican candidate filed a lawsuit against state election officials Friday in an attempt to contest the certification and counting of midterm elections and to ask for a declaration that she is the winner.

According to Friday’s filing with the Maricopa County Supreme Court, the suit is against Lake’s opponent, Katie Hobbs (currently Arizona’s secretary-of-state), and top officials from Maricopa County.

Lake was the Republican candidate most prominent in midterm elections who embraced former President Donald Trump’s false claims about voter fraud in 2020.

Friday’s suit seeks an order declaring Lake the winner in the 2022 Arizona governoral election. Or, alternatively, throwing out all results and asking for a fresh election to be held by the Maricopa County.

Trump-backed Lake lost November’s governor’s race against Democrat Hobbs. She refused to concede the victory and kept making unverified claims on Twitter about election improprieties. Continue reading

Lake pledged to end the state’s mail in voting. Conspiracy theorists claimed that it was susceptible to fraud. This fueled distrust within voters regarding the security of this voting system used by thousands.
