Kari Lake continues to taunt Maricopa County election officials

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has fueled fears of mail-in ballots. Now she is taunting officials for not counting them fast enough after a record number of people kept their mail-in ballots until Election Day.

Lake accused poll workers of deliberately slowing the count and withholding results, commenting in social media posts and in interviews on conservative news sites.

His campaign, Kari Lake War Room, said in a tweet Friday that the Maricopa County Elections Department was creating a slew of new Holocaust deniers, addressing its refusal to accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“This process is a non-transparent joke,” the campaign said. “Our elections shouldn’t be like this. When @KariLake is governor, they won’t be.”

Lake went further, describing the counting process in interviews as “embarrassing” and likening the county’s ballot processing to a banana republic.
