Kari Lake deletes tweet suggesting judge who dismissed her lawsuit was told what to say



Kari Lake, the Republican nominee for Arizona governor, has deleted a tweet accusing the judge who dismissed her election challenge of following the orders of “left-wing attorneys,” who she alleged told him “what to say.”

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson dismissed her challenge to Arizona’s gubernatorial election results, ruling that Lake failed to prove how election day problems would have changed the results.

“The Dismissal of Kari Lake’s Election Lawsuit Shows Voter Disenfranchisement No Longer Matters,” Lake said in the now-deleted tweet, posted on Monday, adding: “Legal experts believe his decision [by Judge Thompson] was ghostwritten, they suspect top left-wing attorneys like Marc Elias emailed him what to say.”

The tweet appears to suggest that Thompson was instructed what to write in his dismissal by an outside group – which would be a severe violation of the law.

Arizona’s Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs, who currently serves as secretary of state, has used the tweet in their request that the judge sanction Lake and her attorneys. Hobbs’ legal team argues that Lake’s election challenge constitutes harassment.

Meanwhile, Lake has argued that the tweet itself is not enough to deserve sanctions since her campaign was sharing the post, originally written by author Rachel Alexander.

Considering that the problems in Arizona related to voting only occurred in what are described as “Republican majority areas” the issue of vote rigging and denial of being able to vote appear to be credible. Then consider, that the “Left”, around the world” regularly do this type of rigging. I suspect, based upon what has been reported, the only way Arizona can establish legitimate elections is to redo all of the elections.
