Trump supporter’s election defeat lawsuit dismissed
Like Donald Trump, Kari Lake is spreading false claims about the US elections. She is rejected in court – but she threatens to continue fighting.
A judge in the US state of Arizona has filed a Republican lawsuit Kari Lake dismissed against their defeat in the gubernatorial election in November. There is no clear or convincing evidence of Lake’s alleged systematic misconduct by those responsible in the election, US media consistently quoted from the judge’s decision on Saturday.
Lake was ex-president donald trump supports and is among those repeating his unsubstantiated claims that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election solely through massive fraud. Even before the recent election, Lake had refused to say whether she would honor her own election result if she lost. To this day, Lake has not admitted defeat.
Lake continues to spread false claims
Lake had filed lawsuits against several poll officials. Their complaint alleges that “illegal ballot papers” were cast during the vote and republican were prevented from voting by long queues. Lake narrowly lost to Democrat Katie Hobbs in the early November election. The result was formally confirmed at the beginning of December.
Immediately after the decision became known on Saturday, she announced that she wanted to appeal the verdict in order to “restore trust and honesty in our elections”. After all, she proved to the world that the elections are outside the law, the 53-year-old claimed on Twitter.
