(Republicaninformer.com)- Kari Lakes praised a recent ruling in Georgia that is ordering a new election to take place after “systemic irregularities” were identified by officials, according to Newsweek. The case involved a rural county commission race whose results were reportedly impacted.
Lake’s comments come after she lost her effort to overturn the results of the 2022 midterm gubernatorial election after citing irregularities and fraud in Maricopa County, which was also the focus in Arizona during the 2020 presidential election.
During the midterm elections, from ballots being rejected due to tabulation errors to long lines causing frustrated voters to leave, voting centers have been plagued with issues, according to a report from Just the News.
Katie Hobbs, then the secretary of state, allegedly beat Kari Lake and was criticized for handling the state’s election duties, despite being a candidate herself.
Several candidates in the Screven County race in Georgia filed lawsuits alleging that at least two dozen voters were issued incorrect ballots, potentially impacting the outcome of the race. Voters were assigned ballots to districts that they did not live in, indicating that they were disenfranchised from voting in their home district.
This is the same argument Lake made in her Arizona case where she claims that 1,000 residents were provided incorrect ballots in Maricopa County. Lake is calling for Arizona to follow the Georgia judge’s lead in ordering a new election.
Georgia’s Screven County has a population of 14,000 residents compared to Arizona state’s 7.3 million. The statewide gubernatorial race reportedly bears no resemblance to the rural county. While the county was decided by seven votes, Arizona was decided by more than 17,000.
But Screven County was also able to prove the irregularities, unlike Lake, according to Newsweek. Lake’s lawyers claimed that the tabulators were not counting all of the ballots, but the ballots were reportedly submitted by hand.
