Trump-endorsed Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake filed an amicus brief in the Arizona Supreme Court in the AZGOP’s lawsuit against Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs to protect Arizona’s elections.
The Gateway Pundit reported on the lawsuit to ban unconstitutional drop boxes and no-excuse mail-in voting in Arizona.
The lawsuit was filed in the Arizona Supreme Court on Friday, February 25th, seeking to ban unconstitutional drop boxes and no-excuse mail-in voting. It will also require the Arizona Secretary of State to include signature verification guidelines in the Arizona Elections Procedures Manual.
Lake’s amicus brief serves to assist the court by providing more insights into how no-excuse absentee voting and absentee drop boxes can be abused by the unscrupulous.
Lake further provides clear evidence that no excuse mail-in voting and drop boxes are unconstitutional, unnecessary, and provide unique opportunities to rig our elections.
The case for this brief was built citing legal precedents and examples of mail-in ballot abuse in other states, including Wisconsin, where hundreds of thousands of illegitimate ‘indefinitely confined’ votes were counted under the guise of COVID.
Banning drop boxes and no excuse mail-in ballots will remove avenues that are used to pressure and intimidate voters, replacing them with confidential in-person voting on election day. It also removes the potential for other forms of fraud or abuse, including overzealous solicitation of absent electors who may prefer not to participate in an election.

Kari Lake Steps into AZ Supreme Court Case to Fight for Honest Elections for All Arizonans
Phoenix, Arizona – Kari Lake has just filed an Amicus Brief with the Arizona Supreme Court, urging them to hear the case against the state’s unconstitutional voting system organized by a member of the Arizona Republican Party.
“Voters have made it very clear that they are demanding nothing less than completely secure elections and we’re going to give it to them come hell or high water,” Lake said.
A forensic investigation earlier this year, along with a canvass of absentee voters which uncovered tens of thousands of irregularities with ballots cast in the 2020 general election, has compelled Lake to file her brief this morning. Voters have also been reaching out by the thousands to the campaign asking for help in securing elections in 2022 and beyond, which is why Lake is fighting against the unconstitutional voting practices that have plagued Arizona for years.
The brief was filed around noon on Wednesday March 9th with the Arizona Supreme Court. The original lawsuit was filed on February 25th, 2022 and is awaiting a hearing.

I. MOTION TO FILE AMICUS CURIAE BRIEF
Pursuant to Rule 16, Ariz. R. Civ. App. P., Kari Lake moves that this Court accept the accompanying amicus curiae brief.
II. LAKE’S INTEREST AND THE REASONS THE PROPOSED AMICUS BRIEF IS USEFUL TO THE COURT’S DISPOSITION
Kari Lake is a candidate for the Republican nomination for Governor of Arizona. One of the first thing she noticed is the high level of interest that the people of the State have in an election system that produces an actual winner on Election Night, not days or weeks later. Many voters have been registered for long enough to remember what that was like.
As it turns out, Arizona’s no-excuse mail-in balloting system is not consistent with the Arizona Constitution. As it also turns out, Ms. Lake has heard from Arizona voters who have been pressured in the past to submit their mail-in ballots to elections officials or to simply give them to a third party for that person or persons to turn in. This type of a system is simply not consistent with secret balloting. Ms. Lake also regularly hears frustrations from voters about having to wait for days or weeks on end for a winner to be declared, and the distrust in the integrity of election that such delays sow.
The cause of action that this amicus pertains to is about elections. People vote for candidates and ballot measures at elections, but only candidates have the ability
to speak. Ms. Lake offers the unique perspective of a major statewide candidate. But this is not simply a political perspective. As the petition and the amicus show, this position is grounded in our State Constitution. Ms. Lake is a new face to politics, and she brings a new perspective, one willing to re-examine whether the entrenched system of no-excuse mail-in voting actually comports with the Arizona Constitution.
Ms. Lake’s perspective reflects the sentiment of the thousands of Arizonans that Ms. Lake has made contact with. For this reason, Ms. Lake believes this Court would benefit from this amicus.
This is just one of the cases against Katie Hobbs, a candidate for governor, for her elections malfeasance.
The Gateway Pundit reported that Hobbs is now facing prosecution by the Arizona Attorney General’s office for her plan to subvert election law again by shutting down the internet candidate petition portal. This is amid an ongoing criminal investigation into the stolen 2020 election.
Katie Hobbs will not get away with another stolen election.
