Maricopa County Superior Court rules in favor of Kari Lake’s election challenge

A Maricopa County Superior Court Judge has declined to dismiss Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s election challenge in a hearing on Monday morning.

The decision was a big victory for Lake as previously Secretary of state candidate Mark Finchem and Congressional candidate Jeff Zink’s case to overturn the election had been dismissed with prejudice, which meant that they could not bring the suit forward again.

Lake has described her case as “the strongest election lawsuit in U.S. history,” and hopes to reverse the outcome of the Arizona gubernatorial race that saw current Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs secure the race for Arizona’s governor’s mansion.

Game changer

Lake is convinced that the race wasn’t legitimate and has already succeeded in getting Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson to allow Lake’s lawyers to inspect samples of random ballots in different conditions.

Widespread ballot printer and tabulator issues on Election Day affected over half of Arizona’s polling locations, and Lake’s lawyers assert that those issues may have skewed the outcome of the race for governor.

Lake’s legal team also pointed out how Republican voters had voted in a massive 3-1 ratio on election day as many Democrats chose mail-in voting.

That massive disparity means that any issues at polling locations on Election Day would disproportionately affect Lake’s voter totals in a race that was decided by a mere 17,000 votes.

“Unforgivable” that voters were “disenfranchised”

Lake issued a statement in a video message saying, “What happened to Arizonans on Election Day is unforgivable. Tens of thousands of Maricopa County voters were disenfranchised.”

If it indeed turns out that tens of thousands of votes were discounted or otherwise “lost,” Hobbs’s victory is illegitimate, and a new race would be necessary.

Signs of foul play were evident early on in Arizona’s governor’s race, and Secretary of State Hobbs didn’t help things by dismissing calls for her to recuse herself from overseeing the election that she was participating in.

The truth will come out

The fact that the Maricopa County Superior Court is choosing to hear our Lake’s arguments instead of dismissing them out of hand is a major step forward.

Democrats have been hard at work demonizing the very idea of questioning election outcomes for the past two years. The events of the 2020 presidential election also seemed to doom any chances Republicans had of questioning elections in court.

Now with the Court system actually being forced to do its job and explore if the election was legitimate, Americans stand a chance at seeing the truth.

While it seems unlikely that Lake will be declared Governor, there is a strong possibility Republicans will learn more about what Democrats are doing to influence elections. That information will go a long way toward counteracting Democrat election interference in the 2024 presidential election.
