Arizona Supreme Court Agrees to Expedite Kari Lake’s Election Lawsuit

The Arizona Supreme Court on Friday agreed to expedite a hearing regarding a lawsuit filed by 2022 GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake alleging that election improprieties cost her a victory.

Last month, Lake filed a “Motion To Expedite” the case, arguing that “expeditious action to resolve these issues is needed to safeguard Arizona voters’ right to free and equal elections.”

She argued that the Maricopa County Superior Court and Arizona Court of appeals disregarded the evidence, “ignored this Court’s precedents for reviewing election contests and ratified Maricopa officials’ decision to ignore Arizona’s ballot chain-of-custody (“COC”) and logic and accuracy testing (“L&A testing”) requirements set forth in Arizona’s Election Procedures Manual (“EPM”), and A.R.S. §§16-621(E), 16-449, 16-452(C).”

“The court of appeals’ Opinion denying petitioner Kari Lake’s appeal ruled that Arizona election laws don’t matter,” the filing stated.

The state’s highest court issued its ruling on Thursday, setting a March 21 date to consider whether to accept Lake’s new petition. The court ordered defendants to issue responses by March 13.

Last month, the appeals court ruled that voters were able to cast their ballots and votes were counted properly in Arizona during November’s midterm elections.

“Lake argues that the superior court erred by dismissing her claims asserting equal protection and due process violations. Her arguments fail, however, because these claims were expressly premised on an allegation of official misconduct in the form of interference with on-site tabulators — the same alleged misconduct as in Lake’s printer/tabulator claim,” the ruling stated, upholding Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs’ victory.

“Because these claims were duplicative of a claim that Lake unsuccessfully pursued at trial, the superior court did not err by dismissing them. For the foregoing reasons, we affirm the superior court’s ruling confirming Hobbs’s election as governor. We deny Hobbs’s request for an award of attorney’s fees on appeal because she offered no substantive basis for the award,” the appeals court noted further.

“Evidence ultimately supports the conclusion that voters were able to cast their ballots, that votes were counted correctly, and that no other basis justifies the election results,” it said.

Lake responded on Twitter to the news, writing: “BREAKING: I told you we would take this case all the way to the Arizona Supreme Court, and that’s exactly what we are going to do. Buckle up, America!”

Earlier this month, Lake said she’s “entertaining” a possible U.S. Senate run.

During an interview with Charlie Kirk on his Real America’s Voice show, Lake hinted that she could run for the Senate in the 2024 election if she doesn’t get a “decent ruling” in her lawsuit for the Arizona gubernatorial election.

When Kirk asked if she was “entertaining” a Senate run, Lake replied: “Yes I am entertaining it. I mean my number one priority is our court case, and I have full confidence in our court case and I hope we will get a judge to do the right thing. But I’m also looking at what happens if we don’t get a decent ruling in that, and they want me to go away, they want our movement to go away. I represent we the people, and if they want us gone so badly that they’re willing to steal an election then I’m not going to let them have that, I won’t go away.”

“I’ve seen some internal polling that shows I’m the only Republican who can beat these other two. I find both of them incredibly dangerous to the people of Arizona, Kyrsten Sinema’s voting record being 93 percent of the time voting for Joe Biden’s agenda, I find Ruben Gallego being a self-admitted socialist really frightening for Arizona and if I’m the only Republican who can beat them, I would be willing to jump in,” Lake added.

She would be running for a seat currently held by Sen. Krysten Sinema (I-Ariz.) who left her party months ago and is now a self-declared Independent, though she still caucuses with Democrats in the chamber.

A recent poll showed that the firebrand Republican would defeat Sinema and Democrat challenger Ruben Gallego.

    I’d like to see Ms. Lake declared Governor after the election results are overturned. But if not, I’ll take her as Senator.

  • AZ., On notification says:

    Its Ok Kari, if they are smart theyll re issue you the gov. Seat!! Because the latest CPAC POLL places you as a very credible VP WITH DONALD TRUMP. Id hate to see AZ. lose you, but America needs you and Trump. With Top leadership, there are no obstacles we can’t overcom.

  • Bob Dobbs says:

    We The People need to bill liar lake for the court costs and lawyer weeks spent needlessly dealing with these frivolous, criminal “claims”.

    Time’s up: it lost, it needs to go away. SELF DEPORT LAKE.

    • James says:

    • Marie says:

      So much evidence and Dems just want to cheat and lie. What is this world coming to?
      Dems are destroying this country and the devil is their god.

  • Kathleen O'Hara-Pitisci says:

    The EVIDENCE that Kari Lake has is simply IN YOUR FACE EVIDENCE! Hence if the Arizona Supreme court does nothing then THAT PROVES that they are just as corrupt as everyone else who has done nothing to assist Kari Lake.

  • John says:

    That’s exactly why the tyrannical treasonous Democrat communist infested pigs in this corrupted pedophile and the criminal illegal alien embracing injustice system of America hating Antichrist need to be forcefully removed from their positions openly and brazenly displaying their corrupted anti-constitutional illegal decisions these domestic terrorists need to be immediately imprisoned and fined and prosecuted and put in Guantanamo Bay prison where domestic terrorists belong

    • Traveler42 says:

      And ALL of the ILLEGAL ALIENS need to be removed from America as well.

      The nation was NOT set up to be a dumping ground for the world’s trash.
