The GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake has stated that she is pursuing a manual recount after her election loss by nearly 17,000 votes to a Democratic Governor-elect from Arizona, Katie Hobbs.

She responded to a Twitter user who was looking for a “full hand recount of all AZ ballots,” and replied with 3 simple words: “Yes. We. Do.”

Newsweek reported: “Lake was responding to a post from Cory McGarr, a conservative member-elect of the Arizona House of Representatives. In his tweet, McGarr pushed for the hand recount and said: ‘If there’s nothing to hide there’s nothing to fear.’ McGarr also tagged Abraham Hamadeh, a Lake ally and former GOP candidate for Arizona attorney general who challenged the results of his own recent election after he lost. A recent recount in that race confirmed that Hamadeh had, in fact, lost to his Democratic opponent Kris Mayes—although by a slimmer margin than the initial tally.”

In the last week of December, Lake filed a request after her claims got rejected by a judge in a hearing that could have reversed her election loss to Hobbs.

Lake gave an interview on “The Larry Elder Show” on Epoch TV and stated that those who disagreed with her lawsuits have “picked the wrong woman to mess with” and if necessary, she is determined to take her suit “all the way to the Supreme Court”.

“Somebody said, ‘Oh, just be graceful, you lost.’ No, we didn’t lose. If I would have lost I would be graceful. And I promised when I ran for governor that I would stand up and fight for the people of Arizona every single day. And I’m still fighting for them because they’re asking me,” Lake said.

“I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve had days where I just go, ‘I’m tired.’ But I can’t walk away. I can’t say to the children, ‘Good luck. I had a great life. I had freedom in America. Good luck and enjoy the communism,’” she added.

Lake is requesting the Arizona Court of Appeals to re-examine all 10 counts of the suit that were tipped over by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson.

Lake has also asked the Court of Appeals to reverse the ruling according to which she has to pay $33,00 in legal fees to Hobbs.

Judge Peter Thompson declined an appeal from Hobbs, who was looking for sanctions against Lake.

Though, the judge rewarded Hobbs with $33,000 for the cost of maintaining expert witnesses in a 2-day hearing put on by Lake, who questioned the outcome of November’s gubernatorial election.

“After the litigation, Hobbs filed a request to the court seeking $36,990 in attorneys’ fees and expenses paid during a two-day trial, as well as sanctions against Lake. The court denied Hobbs’ request for sanctions against Lake, saying the claims presented in litigation were not groundless or brought in bad faith. But costs associated with fees of witnesses were covered, for the most part. Hobbs requested reimbursement of $5,900 for an expert who was retained and who testified during the court hearing,” Fox News reported.

“She also filed a separate request for expert witness fees in the amount of $22,451 and an additional $4,689.50 for the reimbursement of a person designated to inspect the ballots. The ballot inspector’s compensation, according to court documents, was charged at a rate of $565 per hour for 8.3 hours. The court agreed to reimburse the $33,040.50 to Hobbs. It also ordered that the amount accrue an annual interest of 7.5% until the money is paid in full,” the report added.

Judge Thompson wrote in his decision: “Every one of Plaintiff’s witnesses — and for that matter, Defendants’ witnesses as well — was asked about any personal knowledge of both intentional misconduct and intentional misconduct directed to impact the 2022 General Election. Every single witness before the Court disclaimed any personal knowledge of such misconduct. The Court cannot accept speculation or conjecture in place of clear and convincing evidence.”

More than 200 voters gave statements in the court expressing the disappointment they faced while trying to cast their ballots on Election Day in Maricopa County. Though most of those voters still managed to cast their votes, Judge Thompson stated.

“If the ballot definitions (sizes) were changed, it stands to reason that every ballot for that particular definition printed on every machine so affected would be printed incorrectly,” Thompson wrote. “As Plaintiff’s next witness indicates, that was not the case on Election Day. In either event, Mr. Parikh acknowledged that he had no personal knowledge of any intent behind what he believes to be the error.”

Judge Thompson stated, Lake and her team did not submit any valid proof about the voters being turned away or refused votes on Election Day.

Several voting fraud experts are in agreement that the democrats were engaged in fraudulent activities related to elections, however, in the words of Kari Lake, this time they have messed with the wrong woman. 

Kari Lake is an exceptional leader who is willing to take the case over to the U.S. Supreme Court and expose the corruption of Democrats as she is aiming for a hand recount which will prove how the left suppressed the Republican votes.
