    Is there a legal fight?  She lost.  The same way Trump lost.  Trump’s 0 for the century on legal challenges.  I thought the courts were losing their appetite for frivolity.

    [/link]

    A top election official in Arizona’s Maricopa County went into hiding on Sunday due to security concerns in the wake of the 2022 midterm elections.
     
    Maricopa County Supervisor Bill Gates confirmed to the local Fox affiliate [link=https://www.fox10phoenix.com/news/maricopa-county-chairman-moved-to-undisclosed-location-for-safety-after-midterm-elections?taid=637a4129eaedf20001098434&utm_campaign=trueanthem&utm_medium=trueanthem&utm_source=twitter]KSAZ-TV[/link] that he moved to an “undisclosed location” with a security detail from the sheriff’s office. Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix, is the state’s most populous, with more than 4.4 million residents.
     
    [link=https://www.maricopa.gov/5410/Biography]Gates[/link], a lifelong Republican, is one of the leaders of the Maricopa County Elections Department and has been a staunch defender of the county’s elections.

    The RNC has joined the suit, of course. Seems like a real tantrum; the recount hasn’t even started yet, and the GOP is already crying foul and demanding the election be overturned.

    Michael Flynn says he knows Kari Lakes election was stolen because other, less controversial, Republicans running in AZ got more votes that her so it mustve been rigged against her.

    A Maricopa County Court Superior Judge rejected Mark Finchems attempt to overturn his election loss by more than 120,000 votes, ruling Friday that opened the door for possible sanctions against the Republicans attorney. In a ruling posted late Friday evening, Judge Melissa Julian dismissed what she called a frivolous case brought by Finchem and invited attorneys for Hobbs and Fontes to file motions seeking sanctions.

    Julian issued a blistering retort to claims made by Finchems attorney in which she said that the claims failed on their merits, were not brought in a timely fashion or were not applicable to Arizona law.

    BREAKING: Judge in AZ election denier Abe Hamadehs case: “You haven’t proven the elements of the case.” Boom. Kari Lake case that was concluded yesterday is very likely going to show the same.

    (Hamadeh sued claiming that he would have won but for miscounted votes In closing remarks now, his attorney CONCEDES that he had NO EVIDENCE that enough votes were miscounted to change the outcome. Whole suit boils down to a tiny few votes.

    Defense calling for sanctionsrightly!)

      [b]Judge Rejects Kari Lakes Effort to Overturn Election[/b]

      A state judge on Saturday rejected Kari Lakes last-ditch effort to overturn her defeat in the Arizona governors race, dismissing for lack of evidence her last two claims of misconduct by Maricopa County election officials, the New York Times reports.

      The order by Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson, after a two-day trial in Phoenix that ended Thursday, follows more than six weeks of claims by Ms. Lake, a Republican, that she was robbed of victory last month assertions that echoed the false contention that was at the heart of her campaign: that an even larger theft had stolen the 2020 presidential election from Donald Trump.

      Ms. Lake and her supporters conjured up what they called a deliberate effort by election officials in Maricopa County, the states largest county, to disenfranchise her voters. But they never provided evidence of such intentional malfeasance, nor even evidence that any voters had been disenfranchised.

    [b]Lawsuit seeks sanctions against Kari Lake for frivolous election suit[/b]
     

    Just two days after a Maricopa County judge ruled to dismiss GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lakes election case, the county itself and the Arizona Secretary of States Office is seeking sanctions against her and her attorneys for what theyre calling a frivolous lawsuit. Over the weekend, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson ruled that there was no clear evidence of misconduct by the county that Lake had alleged had affected the result of the 2022 general election.

    Lawyers for Lake focused on problems with ballot printers at some polling places in Maricopa County, home to more than 60% of Arizonas voters. The defective printers produced ballots that were too light to be read by the on-site tabulators at polling places. Lines backed up in some areas amid the confusion. Lakes attorneys also claimed the chain of custody for ballots was broken at an off-site facility, where a contractor scans mail ballots to prepare them for processing.

    After the ruling, Judge Thompson ordered that sanctions sanction documents were due Monday morning by 8 a.m. Maricopa County Superior Court records revealed a motion seeking sanctions was filed minutes before the deadline. One motion asks for approximately $37,000 in attorney fees for Hobbs and the county.

        Election-law attorney and newly elected Arizona Rep. Alex Kolodin told NewsNation why Lake’s legal efforts challenging the state’s gubernatorial election results are continuing, even after Democrat Katie Hobbs was officially sworn in on Monday.[/i]

        “The trial court got it wrong in terms of requiring proof of fraud or some ill intent. That’s simply not what Arizona law requires.  The only thing that matters is, ‘Were there errors? Were they significant enough that they could have changed the results or at least make the results uncertain?'”

    [b]Top Arizona election official seeks campaign-violation probe of Kari Lake[/b][/h1]

    Arizonas top election official has asked the attorney general to investigate Kari Lake, the Republican candidate who lost her bid for governor in 2022, over potential campaign violations involving the disclosure of voter signatures.

    The [link=https://www.washingtonpost.com/documents/6458c3e2-794a-4404-a363-0866b726ef2c.pdf?itid=lk_inline_manual_5]referral[/link] from Secretary of State Adrian Fontes (D) to Attorney General Kris Mayes (D) comes as Lake has doubled down on her unproven claims that administration of the states midterm elections resulted in her loss. The Washington Post has obtained a copy of the referral.

    In his letter, Fontes pointed to state law involving public inspection of voter registration records. That law says records containing voter signatures shall not be accessible or reproduced by any person other than the voter.
     
    Violation of that law, he wrote, is a felony.

    Failed Republican candidate for governor of Arizona, Kari Lake, delivered a stump speech in Iowa on Friday and while declaring her absolute support for[b] Donald Trumps[/b] 2024 campaign, she also argued that if elections were really fair, the GOP would control the White House, House, the Senate, and all the state governorships.
     
    Weve got a lot of great candidates in the Republican Party. Unlike the Democrat Party, they roll people out like Katie Hobbs and Joe Biden, and they expect us to believe that thats thats what people want and we know people dont want that, Lake declared.

    Meanwhile, weve got great candidates on the Republican Party and on our side. Weve got so many great candidates that if our elections were really fair, I believe the ranks of Congress, the Senate, I think a White House, I think all the state governorships would be Republican if elections were fair, she added, declaring fair elections equate with GOP victories.
