Kari Lake, who lost the governor's race in Arizona in 2022, has filed an appeal with the Arizona State Supreme Court over what she says is intentional sabotage and irregularities in the election.

"New evidence produced by Maricopa STRONGLY suggests County officials intentionally sabotaged the 2022 General Election, then gave false testimony attempting to cover up their misconduct," Lake tweeted about the appeal.

"Maricopa’s Co-Director of Elections, Scott Jarrett, gave false testimony about the causes and the extent of the Election Day tabulator ballot rejections caused by misconfigured, speckled, or faded BOD-printed ballots," the appeal alleged.

She claimed that 7,000 BOD ballots were rejected every 1/2 hour from voting machines on Election Day in Maricopa County from 6:30 a.m. until 8 p.m.

Lake has said she will take the case to the Supreme Court if necessary.

Lake lost the race to Katie Hobbs by 17,000 votes, but still contends that she only lost because of fraud.
