Kari Lake will not shy away from electoral conspiracies

Kari Lake, who ran for Arizona governor in last November’s midterm elections, continued to touting electoral conspiracies and calling for “honest elections” on Saturday.

Lake made her comments in reference to a video shared on Twitter by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican, beginning “How to Steal an Election.” A narrator in the video then accuses the Democrats and the media of being responsible for Donald Trump’s defeat in the 2020 presidential election.

“And then again in 2022. It’s time to stand up and say ‘No!’ to say,” Lake wrote on Twitter in reference to the Midterms. “We, the people, demand honest elections and we will get them.”

Lake, who lost the governorship to Katie Hobbs, a Democrat and Arizona Secretary of State, refused to back down and instituted legal action to challenge the election results. She insisted she won in court despite a lack of evidence and failed attempts to overturn the result.

On Friday, Lake claimed that a coalition of Democrats and RINOs (Republicans in name only) worked to rig the bottom line in favor of Hobbs, who defeated them by about a half point.

“The Red Wave happened in AZ,” tweeted Lake, who has repeatedly said there is “shocking” evidence of fraud but was unable to provide any. “Fraudulent Dems and RINOs rigged our elections. EVERYONE knows that Arizonans did NOT vote for cartel controlled idiots like Hobbs, Fontes & Mayes. Scams have stolen the Arizona state government.”

She also cited a report by conspiracy theorist Greg Rubini as proof she won the election. Rubini’s report included the “real” state-level results of a number of key battleground states in the 2020 presidential election.

Rubini, who claims to have contacts with high-level figures in the intelligence agency, temporarily suspended his Twitter account in 2020 for repeatedly violating the platform’s policies by spreading conspiracy theories, including those related to COVID, according to the Associated Press -19 Buzzfeed previously reported in June 2020 that Rubini is a pseudonym of a 61-year-old Italian man who worked in marketing and music promotions, with no national security or intelligence credentials.

In his Friday report, Rubini claimed that Trump – who narrowly lost Arizona 2020 to Joe Biden by nearly 11,000 votes – actually dominated the results there by more than 13 points, a conclusion Rubini reached by reverse engineering the results by saying “the scientific method.” However, he never explained how he arrived at this conclusion.

Meanwhile, in an appearance with conservative commentator Charlie Kirk last week, Lake took aim at RINOs and insisted that side of the Republican Party was “panicking”.

“When you’re in politics, you work for the people. You’re not the boss, the people are the boss, and we need to get back to that,” Lake said. “And right now we’re watching this RINO class of our party trying to get into all these little legislatures and take back control. And I want the grassroots to know, don’t give them a damn inch.”

news week contacted Lake’s press office for comment.
