Republican Kari Lake has filed a lawsuit against Maricopa County in Arizona over the 2022 midterm election outcome.
Democrats and the media will call her an election denier, but that will not matter.
The whole world saw how long it took for the votes to be counted and the whole thing stinks. Lake has every right to take legal action on this matter.
Kari Lake Files First Lawsuit Over Midterm Election Results
Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake filed the first lawsuit against election officials in Maricopa County, claiming that laws were violated after it took over a week to get the midterm election results.
Lake is requesting the court to provide records on how they counted the votes during the November 8 midterm elections, in which she has publicly cast doubts that her Democrat opponent Katie Hobbs won the Arizona election fairly.
The defendants listed in the suit include Stephen Richer, the Maricopa County recorder, and other officials. Lake is alleging that there were misprinted ballots that were not readable by voting machines, the mixing of counted and uncounted ballots, and long lines at polling locations that discouraged voters from casting ballots.
“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 lawsuit reads.

The way Arizona conducted this election was a disgrace.
