Republican Gubernatorial candidate in the state of Arizona, Kari Lake, recently conducted an interview where she vowed to make major changes to make state and national elections more “honest and transparent.”
On ABC’s talk show “This Week,” Kari Lake was interviewed by ABC News’ Chief Washington Correspondent Jonathan Karl and it was pretty obviously skewed against the Republican gubernatorial candidate.
Karl began, “Let me ask you why it is that you have not said — or maybe you’ll do it now — you have not said that you will accept the certified results of this election, even if you lose this election?”
This question was posed as Lake and her Republican peers have made comments about the 2020 President election being rigged and therefore rejecting the results.
Yet Lake responded, “I will accept the results of this election if we have a fair, honest and transparent election. Absolutely, 100%. As long as it’s fair, honest and transparent.”
The interview then transitioned to the topic of how Lake will change elections if she takes the Arizona governorship.
“As governor, would you seek to change the election laws? And specifically, would you look to limit early voting and mail-in voting in Arizona?” Karl asked.
“I don’t know exactly how we’ll do it, but we will secure our elections, restore faith in our elections, make sure our elections are honest and transparent,” responded Lake.
“I assume everybody wants that. But specifically early voting and mail-in voting, which you’ve been very critical of — would you seek to limit it?” Karl further questioned.
“I think, you know, a lot of things going back to when I first started voting back in the 80s, we had Election Day. Our Constitution says Election Day. It doesn’t say election season, election month. And the longer you drag that out, the more fraught with problems there are.”
“We just saw problems this week with Katie Hobbs, my opponent. She just put out — sent out 6,000 ballots that went – the wrong type of ballots to the wrong people,” Lake continued.
“But just to be clear, the Republicans on the Board of Supervisors, the Republican governor, now the Republican candidate for Senate, running along with you, the Republican Attorney General under Donald Trump, Bill Barr — all said that there, that there wasn’t, you know, that the election was — was not stolen,” Karl asked.
“Well, we have a lot of corruption in the system, and they don’t want — I think a lot of people who were responsible for that election know that there were rules broken and laws broken, and they don’t want to admit fault, OK?” Lake defiantly stated.
