Kari Lake Suffers Yet Another Defeat In Latest Attempt To Overturn Arizona Election



Kari Lake

Defeated Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake lost yet another lawsuit attempting to undo her election loss in Arizona after the State Court of Appeals ruled against Lake’s second court attempt to take the seat by the force of court, the Arizona Republic reports.

The ruling came after Republican-appointed Judge Peter Thompson denied Lake’s previous attempts to stop Gov. Katie Hobbs (D-AZ) from taking office as governor.

“Lake’s arguments highlight Election Day difficulties, but her request for relief fails because the evidence presented to the superior court ultimately supports the court’s conclusion that voters were able to cast their ballots, that votes were counted correctly, and that no other basis justifies setting aside the election results,” judge Thompson wrote in his ruling.

Lake, whose lawyers were hit with Bar Association complaints for lending legal legitimacy to such an effort, lamented in December that she had a rough time trying to find a lawyer for her suits.

“We had attorneys who did walk away because the left is threatening them with their ability to make a living and practice law,” Lake said. “And some of our attorneys said, ‘Look, I got mouths to feed, I can’t do this case, I don’t want to be sanctioned.’”
