On Saturday evening, Kari Lake spoke about the importance of election integrity at Turning Point USA’s Americafest, noting the midterm election day failures of Maricopa County, Arizona.
"Listen, we don't have a choice but to fix our elections and fix them now. It's so important. Election integrity is the single most important issue of our time," Lake told the crowd.
"Because these fools back there just want us to put our head under the pillow and go back to sleep," she added, noting the mainstream media members in the audience. "And we’re not doing that."
Lake continued on to note the Second Amendment, saying, "the Second Amendment is the most important amendment because it protects the other amendments, but honest to God if we don’t have leaders in office to protect our Second Amendment, then we don’t have our Second Amendment. We need free and fair elections."
Referencing pro-life activists, Lake added, "we want to protect God’s greatest gift in the mother’s womb, right? How do we do that if we don’t have free and fair elections?"
"Take any issue that matters to you. Maybe it’s secure borders. How do we have secure borders with nut jobs like Katie Hobbs? We don’t. We got to have free and fair elections. How do we stop the fentanyl crisis without free and fair elections?"
"It is the bedrock on which everything that matters to us rests. It truly is and they want us to act like we’re crazy for questioning it. I don’t care what they say, I really don’t. We will not have leaders in office that protect our rights unless we have free and fair elections and we stand up at this very moment. It goes for any issue."
"So we're protecting mothers we're protecting children. We're protecting every single right we hold dear to our heart. Understand this. We cannot preserve anything that matters to us if we don't have elections that are real and right now, we have a lot of fake elections out there. And not just in Arizona guys. Not just in Arizona."
"We got to turn this whole thing around. We want low taxes. We want to end our woke curriculum. That's brainwashing our children. We want free speech. We want free speech again. And we want to hold big tech accountable. But we can't do that without free and fair elections. It is the issue of our time. And don't let them scare you away from talking about it," she added.
Noting the young crowd in attendance at the event, Lake said that "this young crowd cannot chart the course for their future until we have free elections. Everything that you and I fight for, everything you’ve heard in the last 24 hours here on stage hinges on one thing, free and fair elections, and right now we don’t have them."
Speaking in reference to Election Day in Arizona, Lake said that there are currently "sham elections" being run by "fraudsters like Bill Gates."
"They corrupted our elections on November 8, and they did it in broad daylight. They couldn’t just do it in the dark of night because our movement is so massive. The corruption stands right here before us in Maricopa County."
Lake said that they built a "house of cards" in Maricopa County, and that she’s not just going to knock the cards down, "we’re gonna burn it to the ground."
"They messed with the wrong woman," Lake added. "They messed with the wrong movement of we the people and we’re not going to take it anymore."
Earlier in her speech, Lake told the crowd that "my pronouns are I/won."
"God put us here at this pivotal moment in American history," said Lake. "He put us here at this pivotal moment in human history to fight for the promise that our forefathers died for, the promise of a nation that is free from tyranny and oppression, and we’re not going backward because I’m not willing to go backward. We are heading toward freedom."
"I want to tell you this, I want to promise you this, everybody in this room. As a woman in my 50s, I am going to take on corruption in our elections," Lake told the crowd, after informing them of the young ages of some of the founding fathers.
"As a woman in her 50s I’m going to take my election lawsuit, which is the strongest election lawsuit this country has ever put forth, and I will take it to the supreme court if necessary."
"You do not steal our vote and get away with it," she added, noting that her and her team are going to court on Monday and that Secretary of State and Governor-elect Hobbs will try to get the case thrown out.
"I can't let your vote be trampled on like that. I can't let my vote be trampled on."
