'They Need to Be Locked up': Kari Lake Goes After County Election Officials


Former Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake slammed Maricopa County election officials, calling them “crooks.”

Lake made the criticism during Turning Point USA’s America Fest over the weekend.

“On Nov. 8, they committed highway robbery,” Lake said.

Taking aim at the election officials, Lake added, “These people are crooks, they need to be locked up.”

Her comment received cheers from the crowd.

She went on to make a joke about pronouns, saying, “I know that right now we can identify as anything we want to identify as. But, I want you to know that I identify as a proud election denying deplorable.”

The Republican continued, “And my pronouns are I/Won.”

The crowd began chanting her name over and over again.

Last month, Lake lost her race to Democrat Katie Hobbs.

Former President Donald Trump offered his support to Lake following the election, saying she should be “installed” as governor, IJR reported.

“Massive numbers of ‘BROKEN’ voting machines in Republican Districts on Election Day. Mechanics sent in to ‘FIX’ them made them worse. Kari had to be taken to a Democrat area, which was working perfectly, to vote. Her opponent ran the Election,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform.

He added, “This is yet another criminal voting operation – SO OBVIOUS. Kari Lake should be installed Governor of Arizona. This is almost as bad as the 2020 Presidential Election, which the Unselect Committee refuses to touch because they know it was Fraudulent!”

During an appearance on “Real America’s Voice” last month, Lake made it clear she was not giving up and appeared confident in the lawsuit her campaign filed after the election.

“I have not given up one scintilla of the fight I have in me,” she said. “Somebody said, ‘Kari, you’re fearless.’”

She continued, “I guess I’m fearless right now, in this difficult time, because what I fear most of all is what happens if we don’t step forward and act with courage right now. What we’re left with. We will have a shell of our country.”

Issuing a warning about her election defeat, Lake explained, “We look at what’s happening in Brazil, and what’s happening in China. We’ll be looking a lot like China. And I’m not talking about the protests happening now, I’m talking about we’ll be enslaved by a globalist system if we don’t stand up right now.”
