'We are NOT finished - buckle up America!' Kari Lake vows to take Arizona gubernatorial...


Election denier Kari Lake promised to take her gubernatorial defeat lawsuit to the Arizona's supreme court after it was tossed for the second time on Thursday - less than two months after it was rejected by a Maricopa County judge.

The ruling from the Arizona Court of Appeals - the second and penultimate tier in the state's court system - came as the latest defeat for Lake, who in December lost the race to be Arizona's next governor by about 17,000 votes.

Immediately chalking up the loss to voter fraud, the 53-year-old former Phoenix journalist filed a suit alleging that problems with printers and election day protocol cost her a victory over Democrat Katie Hobbs.

Her case hinged on the belief that election officials in Maricopa County - which served as the epicenter of the voter conspiracy, according to Lake - carried out the misdeeds at the behest of Hobbs and the local government.

The case was rejected by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson the day before Christmas, leading Lake to file an appeal, which was rejected due to lack of evidence on Thursday.

In trademark fashion, Lake - who has remained adamant that the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen as well - is taking her third consecutive loss in her stride, and took to social media to tell her followers that she is far from finished in challenging Hobbs' win.
