Kari Lake’s appeal against Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson’s denial of her case against Democrat Katie Hobbs and other elections officials to have a re-vote in the November 2022 midterms is scheduled for a conference and oral argument on January 24.
“This case is going to eventually make it to the Arizona Supreme Court no matter what. So there’s really nothing to be gained by waiting on taking this for the Supreme Court. So they should just grant us that request right now. The appeals court has filed our appeal; we filed our appeals brief on Friday-New Year’s Eve, and we are really pleased with the appeal court, who has set the briefing schedules and then they have put on a schedule a date for possible oral Arguments for January 24th, but as I said, there’s really no reason to put this on the appeals court window.
The governor is not duly elected right now, right now and this must be resolved as quickly as possible. So we are asking them to allow the skipping over the Appellate portion of the court system and go directly to them.
And we have very strong arguments; we will win on the merits, and we will win on the evidence when they take a look at it,” Lake told Real America’s Voice.
After Hobbs took the oath of office, both the legal procedure and the unpleasant account of her conduct are made public at the same time.
Hobbs laughed at the US Constitution:
“Hobbs was sworn into office at a private ceremony on the Ninth Floor of the Arizona Capitol Executive Tower on Monday after a narrow and highly questionable election win. In a bizarre moment of incompetence and unseriousness, Hobbs busted out in laughter after she was told to solemnly swear that she will support the Constitution,” Jordan Conradson reported for Gateway Pundit, adding details in his report:
“Hobbs at the certification ceremony to sign off on her own election on December 5, chuckled and looked like a fool as she raised her right hand to take her Oath,” Conradson reported.
Watch the footage for yourself:
Democrat @KatieHobbs was unable to take the oath of office this morning without stammering and laughing through it. She also banned reporters from attending. #AZGov

Lake reacted to the footage of Hobbs and said, “she refused to even conduct herself professionally in front of the media. During the campaign process, she didn’t debate. She didn’t debate her Democratic opponent. She didn’t debate me; she was afraid to speak. She’s incompetent when it comes to putting forth solutions to our problems. And you know, when you don’t have the practice of speaking because you avoid reporters and you duck the very voters that you’re trying to get to vote for you, then you’re not very professional in public. And we Saw that with her at that swearing-in ceremony was really shocking.”
This joke threw salt into the wounds caused by the rejected lawsuit.
On Christmas Eve, despite evidence of widespread voter disenfranchisement targeting Republicans and blatantly fraudulent testimony by County Elections officials, Judge Peter Thompson rejected the Lake case in an attempt to secure a re-vote on the November election.
Lake’s legal team appealed the decision made on Christmas Eve, alleging that the trial court ignored “explosive findings.”
Lake has boldly called Hobb’s actions- election theft:
The Uniparty stole the Arizona Election—D’s & R’s.
The political elite despise We The People and can’t stand the fact that they work FOR us.
They want us to give up this most important fight and go back to sleep.
WE WON’T QUIT.
