On Monday, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson ordered that a trial could go forward on several of GOP candidate Kari Lake’s lawsuit alleging election fraud in Arizona.
This is a big, big development for Lake who has vowed to take her cases of election fraud all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary.
Lake said Monday that she is confident of proving her case if only she is allowed to present her evidence in court.
Per the Daily Mail:
Lake lost the race to be Arizona’s next governor last month by about 17,000 votes to Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs.
But she has argued ever since that problems with printers and election day protocol cost her the election.
A defiant Lake told DailyMail.com before the ruling that she would win if she could get the chance of a court trial. ‘When we lay out our evidence, which is overwhelming, the judge will rule in our favor, and we win,’ she said.
‘The other side wants to sweep all of these problems under the carpet … under the rug and deny that our elections are run like a third world country, like a banana republic,’ she said. ‘And they want this to go away.’
Lake may just get her chance. On Monday, the judge ordered that two of the challenges brought by Lake about chain of custody issues and printer breakdowns can go to a two-day trial.
It’s not over yet, folks.
