(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) A lawsuit filed Friday by Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake against her opponent, Katie Hobbs, and the corrupt election officials in Maricopa County revealed that the county appeared to have added 25,000 additional ballots after the Nov. 8 voting deadline, the Gateway Pundit reported.
Lake’s legal team has argued that the state should nullify the election results and order a full audit of the voting process and counting, especially related to voting machine failures that drove away many Republicans in the county on Election Day.
According to Lake’s team’s legal filing, the ballots appeared and were accepted with no explanation.
“Maricopa County’s public statements concerning remaining ballots to be counted on November 9, 2022, and November 10, 2022, show an increase of approximately 25,000 votes with no explanation of why the number of remaining ballots could increase,” said the complaint.
Lake’s team further noted in a tweet that the reception of the additional ballots may have had something to do with the results of the never-ending “counting” that took place in the county for more than a week after the election.
25,000 ballots were added to Maricopa County's totals after election day.
Do you think that might explain this?
"Following Election Day, Democrat candidates won more than 50% of the votes despite only recording 17% of the turnout on Election Day."

“25,000 ballots were added to Maricopa County’s totals after election day,” they wrote.
“Do you think that might explain this? “Following Election Day, Democrat candidates won more than 50% of the votes despite only recording 17% of the turnout on Election Day.”
The same tactics were developed and used in 2020, wherein Maricopa County officials illegally accepted and counted an additional 20,000 ballots.
In any case, Lake filed a post-election lawsuit, in which she sued Hobbs—who also happens to be Arizona’s current secretary of state—and election officials in Maricopa County, challenging the certification of the midterm gubernatorial election.
Lake says that she didn’t lose to Hobbs because voting machines malfunctioned and Hobbs’s office, as it was revealed in the recent Twitter Files, contacted Twitter to censor certain posts from conservatives.
Hobbs’s team released a statement in response, mocking Lake.
“Kari Lake needs attention like a fish needs water—and independent experts and local election officials of both parties have made it clear that this was a safe, secure, and fair election,” it claimed.
