More Arizona counties refuse to certify results following a scandal-filled election
Once more, Arizona has become ground zero for election problems after Democrats, as usual, have moved to game the system so that more of their candidates win in a suddenly ‘purple’ state.
More counties have begun to voice doubts that the election in Maricopa County was legitimate after hundreds of citizens and poll workers have complained to the elections board about several problems at dozens of polling stations, including malfunctioning tabulators, printers with no ink, and lengthy lines lasting hours.
“There are only 15 counties in the state of Arizona. So far, Mohave, Conchise, and Yavapai counties have refused to certify the suspect election. Gila county may be following suit,” 100 Percent Fed Up reported this week.
Top Real America’s Voice podcaster Steve Bannon spoke on Tuesday with Caroline Wren, a senior advisor for Trump-backed GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who supposedly ‘lost’ to Arizona Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (the state’s top election official, by the way) following a boatload of problems on Election Day.
“We are facing an existential crisis as a party. Our Grassroots supporters do not have faith in the elections. Nor should they. And if we don’t fight now, then when?” Wren said.
“Republicans in the state had 72% of the turnout on election day. Democrats had only a 17% turnout. But for some reason, the remaining ballots after election day broke even between the two parties – despite Republicans holding solid leads in the polls,” 100 Percent Fed Up added.
Earlier this week, Lake posted a video featuring a powerful message to the voters of her state.
In it, she pledged to all Arizonans that she would continue fighting even though some media outlets have called the gubernatorial race for her Democratic opponent, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.
“Hi, this is Kari Lake, and I have a message to the people of Arizona and all Americans. 40 days ago, elections in Arizona officially started when mail-in ballots were sent out across our state. Election day was 13 days ago, and Maricopa County is still counting ballots,” Lake said.
“Would you get on an airplane if half of the engines didn’t work? Would our friends in the media be able to broadcast their nightly propaganda if only half of their studio equipment was working?” she continued.
She went on to praise state Attorney General Mark Brnovich for seeking answers regarding various complaints that arose during Election Day in Maricopa County.
Calling the election “botched and broken beyond repair,” she said her fight is for “our sacred right to vote, a right that many voters were, sadly, deprived of on November 8th.”
She explained, “Attorneys are working diligently to gather information, whistleblowers are coming forward and the curtain is being lifted.”
Other state Republicans cheered the counties’ decisions not to certify the election, including Arizona Republican Party chairwoman and former state Sen. Dr. Kelli Ward.
“Voters in all rural counties in Arizona are being disenfranchised by Maricopa County’s incompetence/malfeasance. I’m happy to see that my county (Mohave) voted to delay certification,” she said on Twitter.
“When Maricopa runs an untrustworthy election, the well run elections in other counties are meaningless. Improperly counted ballots, uncovered votes, & voters turned away in droves in Maricopa Co DISENFRANCHISED rural voters: bad vote counting in Maricopa DEPRIVED rural votes,” she added.
Voters in Maricopa County listed many of the problems that should never have happened during a recent hearing of election officials.
