An attorney for failed gubernatorial hopeful Kari Lake told a judge Friday he has new “bombshell” evidence that on-site ballot tabulators either were intentionally tinkered with or infected with malware, requiring the results of the election be thrown out.

Bryan Blehm said Maricopa County says the reasons many ballots printed at vote centers could not be read by the tabulators was due to unauthorized changes to the settings on the printers. That resulted in many ballots being printed at the wrong size.

“The new evidence … shows that that was absolutely false,” he told Judge Peter Thompson. “This could not be caused by a printer setting change on site.”

Blehm also said that a post-election review of the problems performed by a team headed by former Arizona Supreme Court Justice Ruth McGregor found machines malfunctioned.

“None of the technical experts that they consulted with could explain how or why that occurred,” he said. “That’s malware or it is somebody remotely accessing the printer.”

Another new piece of “bombshell” information, Blehm said, was that printers failed on Election Day at 58% of vote centers, far more than known at the time of the trial when Thompson had previously thrown out that claim.

And he said that changes made to equipment prior to Election Day voided the legally required “logic and accuracy” tests.

All that, Blehm said, is “clear misconduct and intent.”
