The 2022 election in Arizona, like the one in 2020, was another circus, and one of the main reasons that Americans no longer trust the election. Clearly, the left is using ballot harvesting and ballot curing to “win” elections. We need to stop bellyaching about it and learn to do it better than they do, and get back to winning again. But clearly, everyone now realizes that our elections are a joke, and things in Arizona are such a mess that the AG is now involved, and is calling to hold off certification of the election until she gets answers from Maricopa County.
Daily Mail reported that Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has insisted she’ll still become governor after the state’s assistant attorney general demanded explanations to polling day issues before agreeing to certify Lake’s Democrat rival’s win.
GOP rising star Lake spoke exclusively to DailyMail.com Saturday after her campaign was handed a lifeline on Saturday when the state’s attorney general’s office demanded explanations for a string of election day problems before the final results can be certified.
Lake told DailyMail.com it vindicated her decision to fight on, even though the Associated Press and other news organizations called the race for her opponent.
With more than 95 percent of votes tallied, Lake trails Democrat Katie Hobbs by fewer than 18,000 votes. The Associated Press has already called the race for Hobbs – but Lake, who was widely expected to win the contest, is having none of it.
‘The way they run elections in Maricopa County is worse than in banana republics around this world,’ she said in an exclusive interview, referring to the state’s most populous county.
‘And I’ll tell you what, I believe at the end of the day that this will be turned around and I don’t know what the solution will be but I still believe I will become governor, and we are going to restore honesty to our elections.’
On Saturday, Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright wrote to one of the county’s top election officials detailing reports of a string of irregularities from printer problems that stopped ballots being tabulated, to confusion about procedures for transferring voters to alternate sites if they were unable to vote at the first location.
Lake’s claims of fraud have consistently been characterized by opponents as unfounded, and her supporters have yet to produce a smoking gun.
But in her letter, Wright says: ‘These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law.’
She goes on to demand answers before the results can be certified.
‘Arizonans deserve a full report and accounting of the myriad problems that occurred in relation to Maricopa County’s administration of the 2022 General Election,’ Wright wrote in the letter to Thomas Liddy, civil division chief at the Maricopa County’s Attorney’s Office, obtained by DailyMail.com.
‘As the canvass is looming, and these issues relate to Maricopa County’s ability to lawfully certify election results – the Unit requests a response to the aforementioned issues on or before Maricopa County submits its official canvass to the Secretary of State, which must occur on or before November 28, 2022.’
Now, will anything be done? Or is this just another phony “bone” being thrown at us, so they can claim everything is just fine in the end and give the “win” to Hobbs, who behaved like Biden, hiding out in her basement, and unable to answer questions?
Who believes that dullard actually won?
But Dems desperately need AZ, so I think it’s a long shot that Kari gets the win she absolutely deserves.
Sad, but that’s the current state of our banana republic elections.
