Lake Sues Maricopa County For Election Records

maricopa

The Kari Lake for Arizona committee has filed a lawsuit “to compel the prompt production of public records pursuant to the Arizona Public Records Act.” The committee alleged voter suppression among other failures that occurred on Election Day, due to mismanagement by the County’s Election Department.

Lake has said that she expects to file other lawsuits once the campaign gains access to election records.

Lake’s lawsuit asks the court to compel the County to produce the records prior to the canvassing. “This deadline (or its substantial equivalent) is, under the circumstances presented, necessary to ensure that vital public records are furnished promptly and that apparent deficiencies can be remedied before canvassing of the 2022 general election.”

At the time the lawsuit was filed, canvassing was set for 9:30 a.m., on Monday, November 28. Since then, it has been rescheduled to 8:00 a.m., on Monday, prior to a hearing set in a case brought by Abe Hamadeh, the Republican candidate for state attorney general, and the Republican National Committee.

Hamadeh’s campaign is asking members of the pubic to contact members of the Board of Supervisors and “ask them to delay certification until the outstanding election issues are resolved.”
