Former Arizona Republican candidate Kari Lake is bringing her election integrity lawsuit to the Arizona Supreme Court, requesting they review her challenge to the state’s 2022 governor’s election.

Lake lost the race to Democrat Governor Katie Hobbs by just over 17,000 votes.

Maricopa County

Lake has consistently argued that the results were flawed due to problems with ballot printers at some polling places in Maricopa County.

The former candidate has been a staunch supporter of Donald Trump’s yet to be proven claims of widespread election fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

That fight for election integrity has extended to her own race.

Lake’s lawyers insist that “public trust in elections is at an all-time low” and “trust must be restored” by granting “review to correct this manifest error.”

Kari Lake Election Fight Goes to Arizona Supreme Court

Lake’s legal filing argues that technical issues in Maricopa County had disenfranchised Republican voters and that the chain of custody for those ballots in question had been broken at a facility located off-site.

Lower courts have consistently rejected Lakes’s challenge of election results, something her appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court states is a veritable admission that “Arizona election laws don’t matter.”

The Associated Press reports that despite the election integrity lawsuits in the four months since her loss, “the courts concluded she presented no evidence that voters whose ballots were unreadable by tabulators at polling places were not able to vote.”

The AP does admit that “defective printers produced ballots that were too light to be read by the on-site tabulators at polling places,” but county officials have insisted the votes were properly recorded by taking them to “more sophisticated counters at the elections department headquarters.”

Poll Suggests Republican Voters Don’t Support Claims

A research firm known as OH Predictive Insights recently asked a sample of registered voters in Arizona their thoughts on the gubernatorial election results.

Three-quarters of all respondents, including a majority of Republican voters (58%) agreed with the following statement: 

“While the election was not run perfectly, there is no credible evidence of voter fraud that was widespread enough to have changed the outcome of the election.”

Hobbs, meanwhile, is one of several high-profile Arizona politicians and officials to be accused of receiving bribes from the Mexican Sinaloa Cartel.

The Sinaloa Cartel is considered to be one of the most powerful and deadly drug cartels in the world.

Hobbs has denied the allegations saying she hopes those responsible for them “are held accountable.”

Kari Lake, while not accepting the result of the Arizona governor’s race, has teased a potential Senate run in the future, according to the New York Times.
