Katie Hobbs was sworn into office at a private ceremony on the Ninth Floor of the Arizona Capitol Executive Tower on Monday after a narrow and highly questionable election win.
As The Gateway Pundit reported, Kari Lake is still fighting in her lawsuit to overturn the election or hold a new one.
Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson dismissed the lawsuit on Christmas Eve, despite the evidence of massive voter disenfranchisement targeting Republicans and obviously false testimony by County Elections officials. Lake filed a Petition for Special Action last week in the Arizona Court of Appeals, arguing the trial court dismissed “explosive findings.”
Days later, Lake filed a Petition for Transfer in the Arizona Supreme Court to have her case transferred and ruled on by the State Supreme Court immediately.
Democrat Attorney General Nominee Kris Mayes, Democrat Secretary of State Nominee Adrian Fontes, Republican Treaseruer Kimberly Yee, and Republican Superintendent Nominee Kimberly Yee were also sworn into office.
The Gateway Pundit also reported on the questionable Treasurers race. Kimberly Yee, who dropped from the GOP primary for Arizona governor in January with little to no support, trounced her opponent Martin Quezada by over 283k votes. It does not make sense that the State Treasurer’s race would have a much higher turnout for a Republican candidate when Kari Lake’s race was at the top of the ticket.
Associated Press reported,
Katie Hobbs takes the oath of office Monday to become Arizona’s 24th governor and the first Democrat to hold the office since 2009.
Power will transfer in a private ceremony at the state Capitol as Hobbs formally takes over from Republican Doug Ducey. A public inauguration for Hobbs and others taking statewide offices is scheduled for Thursday.
As she did at the certification ceremony to sign off on her own election on December 5, Hobbs chuckled and looked like a fool as she raised her right hand to take her Oath.
Katie Hobbs is incompetent and not a serious person. No honest person believes that the 2022 election was free and fair.
Katie Hobbs refused to debate, did not campaign, had almost no following, and she ran against Kari Lake, one of the most popular Republican candidates in a generation.
As she was sworn in, Hobbs had a hard time following along with the Oath, and she broke out in laughter after she was told to solemnly swear that she will support the Constitution.
No reporters were allowed to attend the private event.
What a joke.
One Twitter user pointed out this spectacle in the Executive Tower.
Democrat @KatieHobbs was unable to take the oath of office this morning without stammering and laughing through it. She also banned reporters from attending. #AZGov
