Donald Trump Demanding Kari Lake Is Made Governor
Former President Donald Trump is holding his ground on rejecting the results of Arizona’s gubernatorial election. He is challenging Kari Lake to be declared the winner and to be immediately installed as governor. He is basing his stand on what the former president characterized as a “criminal voting operation.”
The gubernatorial contest has been called for Democrat Katie Hobbs and the current count shows that she defeated lake by a little more than 17,000 votes out of more than 2.5 million ballots cast.
Trump tweeted this message from his platform Truth Social: “Massive numbers of ‘BROKEN’ voting machines in Republican Districts on Election Day. Mechanics sent in to ‘FIX’ them made them worse. Kari had to be taken to a Democrat area, which was working perfectly, to vote. Her opponent ran the Election.
This is yet another criminal voting operation — SO OBVIOUS. Kari Lake should be installed as Governor of Arizona. This is almost as bad as the 2020 Presidential Election, which the House Unselect [sic, but cute] Committee refuses to touch because they know it was Fraudulent!”
Kari Lake has also used the Truth Social platform to allege that the voting process in her state was not fair.
She wrote, “Arizonans have no Faith & Trust in our Elections. Our Election Officials are incompetent (…or worse) They have failed us. The Fake News ignores our Fake Elections and expect [sic] us to just ‘move on.’ We won’t.”
Maricopa County, the epicenter of the allegations, is home to about half of all Arizona voters. And there were thousands of voters in that region who reported having problems while casting their ballot on Election Day.
This led to an inquiry from the Arizona Attorney General’s office and a subpoena from Arizona Sen. Kelly Townsend.
Kari Lake’s team also filed a lawsuit in state court on Wednesday against Maricopa County, demanding information on voters whose ballots were affected by voting machine problems.
