The 2022 midterms were not what Republicans expected as the proposed “red wave” was not seen sweeping across the country.
Hopes were that the GOP would easily take the majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate, but hopes were not realized as Republicans only secured the House.
One race in the midterms that was highly covered by the media was the gubernatorial race of Arizona where Republican candidate Kari Lake faced off against Democrat Katie Hobbs.
As we now know, Hobbs won the election, but Lake seems to believe that the election was not fair as her attorneys recently filed a lawsuit against Maricopa County officials seeking information related to the events that conspired prior, during and following the midterm election.
Lake said that the filing “was basically just a way for the courts to pressure Maricopa County into giving us public records we have been asking for.”

The lawsuit against Maricopa County was released detailing the reason for it’s filing.
“Plaintiff desires that every lawful vote be properly counted and every voter who was eligible to vote be allowed to vote.
“Because Defendants were unable or unwilling to conduct a reconciliation of voter check ins against ballots cast of each polling center on election night in accordance with Arizona law and have now unlawfully refused to produce public records in response to two public records requests regarding how they administered the election, Plaintiff cannot determine that every lawful vote will be properly counted.
“The records Plaintiff requested in response to the numerous issues with Defendants’ administration of the election are consistent with a parallel demand by the Arizona Attorney General for answers to questions about the Defendants’ actions.
“Given instances of misprinted ballots, the commingling of counted and uncounted ballots, and long lines discouraging people from voting, as demonstrated in the attached declarations, these records are necessary for Plaintiff to determine the full extent of the problems identified and their impacts on electors.”
