Supreme Court Declines Kari Lake Election Case

Kari Lake has suffered yet another defeat in her fight to overturn the 2022 election results.

Lake was narrowly beaten in the gubernatorial election by Katie Hobbs, who adopted the Joe Biden method of campaigning.

Lake was joined in her lawsuit by Mark Finchem, who lost the election for Secretary of State, claiming, among other issues, that the voting machines had been corrupted.

Case Denied

Just as Trump has either lost or had his cases dismissed on this front, Lake has met the same outcomes.

Lake lost her race by about 17,000 votes. She then claimed there were issues with tabulations and the voting machines were hacked.

When her case came before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, it was tossed, with the court ruling that her claim did not show “a plausible inference that their individual votes in future elections will be adversely affected by the use of electronic tabulation, particularly given the robust safeguards in Arizona law, the use of paper ballots, and the post-tabulation retention of those ballots.”

Lake and Finchem had argued, “Arizona-certified optical scanners and ballot marking devices, as well as the software on which they rely, have been wrongly certified for use.”

After the Supreme Court refused to take the case, Kurt Olsen, one of the attorneys representing the duo in the case, stated, “We are obviously disappointed that the U.S. Supreme Court decided not to review the decisions of the Arizona district court and the Ninth Circuit, and order that our challenge to the 2022 election procedures be heard on the merits.”

I think we can expect to see more of this by Lake if she loses her upcoming bid for an Arizona Senate seat.

Lake had been leading in polling until Senator Sinema (I-AZ) dropped out of the race. Now, she is already starting to promote possible issues with the election to set up her claim that she was defeated by fraud again.

Since then, she has given up ground to her opponent, Ruben Gallego, who is now leading Lake by five points in the latest Tyson Group poll.

Yet Gallego is driving fundraising by promoting polling results from a February poll in which he was behind Lake by three points.

This just goes to show you the level of honesty you can expect from Gallego if he manages to hold on and beat Lake.
