19fortyfive reports that the Arizona Republic cited a new post-election audit which maybe a key reason why Kari Lake lost. The claim is that many voters who picked Republicans in other down-ballot races did not vote for Lake.
How Kari Lake Destroyed Herself – 19FortyFive
Kari Lake, who during the contest called some Republicans “RINOs” and disparaged the late former senator of the state, John McCain, would have probably won if those voters had chosen her, according to the analysis by The Audit Guys.
According to the report, 33,000 Maricopa County voters who supported Republicans in six down-ballot races, including state treasurer and county attorney, switched their allegiance to Democrats in favor of Katie Hobbs, the newspaper reported. Another nearly 6,000 Republican-leaning voters who decided to write in a candidate or skip the race altogether contributed to Lake’s deficit, the analysis revealed.
According to a report, in one example of voting irregularity discovery, Lake’s attorneys tried to make a case with the shocking admission that 48 out of 113 ballots (42.5%) were 19-inch ballots produced on 20-inch paper, which led to their rejection by the voting machinery.

Witness Clay Parikh looked at the flawed ballots for the Lake campaign and concluded that the printer settings must have been altered. Parikh explained that security configurations exist, and the problem was not a bump against the printer that caused the settings to change.
According to the evidence reviewed, the printers are set up using scripts, which is the norm for any large organization that needs to handle multiple systems. It eliminates human error from incorrectly entering printer instructions, according to Parikh.
When asked if it couldn’t have happened accidentally, Parikh said it could not. As a result, the votes could not be read through the tabulators and were rejected in large numbers.
Meanwhile, 19fortyfive reveals updates regarding Lake’s potential next election. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona decided to leave the Democratic Party and file as an independent.
If Sinema runs for reelection as an independent, that sets up an exciting race in 2024 if Kari Lake decides to run for the US Senate.
