The state’s dynamic duo of delusion, Kari Lake and Mark Finchem, have embarked upon yet another quest to rid Arizona of all that elections fraud they can’t seem to find. This time, by eliminating the vote counting machines they are convinced robbed Donald Trump of his second term.
Doesn’t matter that there’s no evidence that Donald Trump has been robbed of anything other than his dignity (and that, a self-imposed smash ’n grab).
Lake and Finchem on Friday sued the state of Arizona and Maricopa County, asking a federal judge to bar the use of tabulation equipment in the 2022 elections. The lawsuit is being underwritten by none other than MyPillow CEO/Trump champion Mike Lindell, who is on a nationwide quest to rid the country of the demon machines.
We’ve been down this lawsuit road before
Of course, any credible elections expert would tell you that machine counts are far more accurate than hand counts, but don’t let credibility get in the way of a good conspiracy chase.
Which brings us to Lindell’s stooges and their Lake/Finchem “civil rights” lawsuit:
“Plaintiffs have a constitutional and statutory right to have their ballots, and all
ballots cast together with theirs, counted accurately and transparently, so that only legal votes determine the winners of each office contested in the Midterm Election,” they wrote.
Yeah, yeah. Lather, rinse, repeat. Heavy emphasis on the lather part.
Far-right politicians – in a quest for fame and fortune and a move up the political food chain – have spent the last year and a half foaming at the mouth about the many devious ways in which Dominion Voting Systems stole the 2020 election.
