Nearly 250,000 Ballots Were Rejected on Election Day in Maricopa County

Last week, Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs filed a request to have Kari Lake’s election lawsuit dismissed, arguing that Lake had failed to provide sufficient evidence of voter disenfranchisement in the 2022 elections, PJ Media reports.

The filing says that “[d]espite seven witnesses, hundreds of declarants, and thousands of pages of exhibits,” Lake had “failed to demonstrate any violations of Arizona law and offered no evidence that absent alleged violations the outcome of the election would have been different.”

However, Lake’s team has now revealed that more evidence is on the way that could potentially change the outcome of the lawsuit.

“Yesterday @katiehobbs filed to get our lawsuit thrown out,” tweeted the Kari Lake War Room. “Today, records revealed nearly a quarter of a million ballots were rejected on Election Day in Maricopa County in a race that came down to just 17K votes. She’s illegitimate & she knows it. More evidence to come.”

Shelby Busch, the Vice Chair of the Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC), presented the new evidence to the Arizona Senate Elections Committee.

“We received just a few weeks ago, January of 2023, the system log files from the tabulators that were used in Maricopa County on Election Day, along with the redacted CVR records,” Busch stated. “Through an analysis, we were able to determine that a quarter of a million ballot feeds [were] misread by those tabulators.”

“There are approximately two tabulators in every polling Center, which means there were 446 tabulators with a quarter of a million voter attempt failures,” Busch added.

Lake’s team also claims that up to 40,000 ballots were counted illegally due to mismatched signatures.
