Did Kari Lake make up a threat just to get the headlines away from the break-in at Katie Hobbs' office?
Whether that is the case or not, that is what people are starting to think.
The fact that she is backed by Donald Trump and has been mimicking a lot of Trump's election claims is surely adding to that speculation.
Last week, Kari Lake stated that an envelope with a suspicious white powder had been received at her offices.
One of her staffers was allegedly exposed to the mysterious powder.
Lake reported that all of the items had been collected by authorities and were being sent to a lab for testing.
Well, the tests are back and according to Phoenix police, there was no substance on the envelope or in the envelope at all.
Phoenix police stated, "The state lab tested the items turned over to them regarding incident #2022-1665892 and has determined there was no substance inside."
The part about this that makes Lake look bad is that the report says "no substance," not just a different type of substance.
It makes it sound as though they made up the entire incident just to get some sympathy headlines to match those of Hobbs before the election.
The result of the Arizona race has not yet been announced, but Lake has lost some ground during the most recent batches of ballots.
While she is guaranteeing a win, it seems unlikely that she will be able to make up the difference if this trend continues.
