Arizona judge rejects Kari Lake’s final 2022 election lawsuit

In a ruling Monday May 22nd an Arizona judge rejected the final lawsuit brought forth by Republican Kari Lake, affirming Democrat Katie Hobbs as the rightful victor in Arizona’s recent gubernatorial election. In the ruling Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson found that Lake’s team failed to present, “clear and convincing evidence or a preponderance of evidence” that misconduct was committed in last fall’s Arizona election. Lake, who was also a prominent supporter of former President Donald Trump’s lies regarding the 2020 election, has continued to spread misinformation denying her loss to Hobbs by over 17,000 votes.
