The Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate for America First, Kari Lake, filed her first lawsuit demanding that the highly suspicious Maricopa County demonstrate election integrity and discuss the measures they took to safeguard the 2022 midterm elections, which have exhibited bizarre and childish problems.
In the problematic state, the Republican Secretary of State candidate has filed further lawsuits.
Arizonans demand answers and deserve transparency about the gross incompetence and mismanagement of the General Election by certain election officials. I will not stop fighting until ALL voters receive justice.

“Arizonans demand answers and deserve transparency about the gross incompetence and mismanagement of the General Election by certain elected officials. I will not stop fighting until ALL voters receive justice. See you in court,” Abe Hamadeh reported earlier in the week.
And now Lake is engaged in a court battle.
“They’re trying to run out the clock,” Kari Lake told the reporters this week as she filed the first of what is anticipated to be more lawsuits. Lake filed a lawsuit in Arizona Superior Court against Stephen Richer, the Maricopa Recorder, and other election officials.
Lake’s attorneys filed the complaint against Maricopa County election authorities in an effort to get data related to the November election, which looked to be riddled with purposeful mistakes.
Media outlets have been ready to pronounce Katie Hobbs, a Democrat, the winner. Nevertheless, Lake has not surrendered the election to Hobbs owing to complicated and historic election mishaps.
The complaint states:
Plaintiff desires that every lawful vote be properly counted and every voter who was eligible to vote be allowed to vote. Unfortunately, due to the Defendants’ failures, many eligible voters may not have been able to vote. Because Defendants were unable or unwilling to conduct a reconciliation of voter check ins against ballots cast of each polling center on election night in accordance with Arizona law and have now unlawfully refused to produce public records in response to two public records requests regarding how they administered the election, Plaintiff cannot determine that every lawful vote will be properly counted. The records Plaintiff requested in response to the numerous issues with Defendants’administration of the election are consistent with a parallel demand by the Arizona Attorney General for answers to questions about the Defendants’ actions.
The lawsuit was filed in Arizona Superior Court and names Maricopa County recorder Stephen Richer and other officials as defendants. According to The Epoch Times, the lawsuit wants rapid disclosure of specific facts on the administration of the elections, “which featured widespread issues in the state’s largest county.”
“Given instances of misprinted ballots, the commingling of counted and uncounted ballots, and long lines discouraging people from voting, as demonstrated in the attached declarations, these records are necessary for Plaintiff to determine the full extent of the problems identified and their impacts on electors,” the 19-page lawsuit states.

The Epoch Times adds:
Maricopa County officials have acknowledged that tabulators across many polling sites stopped working properly on election day. Among the advised solutions was voters placing their ballots into a box to be counted later. Declarations attached to the new suit from poll observers say that workers mixed counted and uncounted ballots in the same container at the end of the night. CONTINUE READING…
