On Thursday, GOP Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake said the post-midterm election lawsuit against Democrat Governor-elect Katie Hobbs, which ended the arguments phase and went to the judge to make a ruling, said she and the American people "demand fair, honest, transparent elections."
Standing outside of the courthouse, Lake said, "We proved without a shadow of a doubt that there was malicious intent that caused disruption so great it changed the results of the election," of the case that alleged illegal votes affected Arizona's governor's race.
Lake said she was proud of her team of attorneys and staff and thanked them for working on this "historic case."
The suit noted the many election day malfunctions with Maricopa County's tabulator machines and noted that whistleblowers found violations in the chain of custody of ballots.
"We provided expert testimony, we provided experts, the other side brought in activists to try to save face," Lake said. "They admitted that they've known about these ballot problems."
One of Lake's experts was professional investigator Heather Honey who used statements from Maricopa County election officials to claim that legal requirements concerning chain of custody were not followed. The defense said the problems were going on for three years.
"Our elections are a mess in this country. And I am so happy to stand up and say no longer will we as Americans put up with this," Lake said. "We demand fair, honest, transparent elections and we will get them and I pray so hard for this judge. I think that he really took in all of that information. I think he listened very closely to what happened."
On Wednesday, Lake's team argued that ballots in the election, which was won by Hobbs with fewer than 18,000 voted, were not valid after a review granted by the court.
Lake said in her statement, "I'm fighting for the people of Arizona, but not just for the people of Arizona. I'm fighting for the people of this country and for our future. If we don't have honest elections, where we decide who represents us then we don't have a country anymore."
Lake alleged Hobbs, who is the Arizona secretary of state, participated in censorship and suppression that contributed to a lack of integrity in the election. According to the Twitter files, Hobbs had her office contact Twitter to censor posts related to the Arizona gubernatorial election,. Hobbs also threatened Mohave County and Cochise County supervisors with prosecution if they did not certify the midterm election results.Lake also said that the defendants' attorney said in his closing statement that "'we choose our rulers,' Isn't that telling? This was a selection, not an election, and we in America choose who represents us and we will restore honest elections and I will never stop fighting."
