It’s Not Over Yet: Judge Delivers Massive Legal Victory for Kari Lake, Here’s the Order

Published on

Friday, the court supervising Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s legal challenge of the November election gave her team permission to check votes cast.

Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson ordered Maricopa County to allow Lake’s attorneys to review 50 randomly selected “ballot-on-demand” printed votes cast on Election Day, 50 randomly selected early ballots cast in the race, and 50 randomly selected ballots designated as spoiled on Election Day.

Tuesday is the scheduled inspection date.

Katie Hobbs, a Democrat, beat Lake in the election on November 8 by little over 17,000 votes.

Attorneys for Lake contended in her complaint filed last week that major ballot printer and tabulator problems on Election Day impacting 131 polling places (59 percent of the total) lowered the candidate’s vote totals.

According to the county, 71 sites were affected, or nearly one-third of all locations.

Lake argued that her supporters were subjected to massive vote suppression on Election Day, when Republicans outvoted Democrats by a ratio of 3 to 1.

Multiple areas around Maricopa County saw the emergence of hours-long queues.

A setting on the in question ballot printers prevented the tabulators from reading the ballots, according to the county.

Evidently, Lake’s team is interested in determining if incompetence or wrongdoing had a role in the failure of so many machines on Election Day.

More on this story via The Western Journal:

Lake told Real America’s Voice host Charlie Kirk on Monday, “Seventy-five percent of people voting on Election Day were voting for me. And then you basically shut down or make it impossible to vote or very difficult to vote at roughly 60 percent of the locations to vote, you’re going to cut into our lead. This is the disenfranchisement of voters in Arizona.” CONTINUE READING…
