“Republican Kari Lake, who lost November’s Arizona gubernatorial election but is continuing to insist the contest was rigged against her, claimed that in Maricopa County, “not a single tabulator” was up to “Election Assistance Commission standards” on polling day.
Lake lost to Democrat Katie Hobbs by 17,000 votes, with Hobbs sworn into office this month. But Lake, a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump, is refusing to concede defeat, despite her claims of electoral fraud being dismissed by a Maricopa County judge.
On Wednesday Lake tweeted a video of political ally Shelby Busch, who chairs the ‘We the People AZ Alliance,” appearing on Steve Bannon‘s War Room podcast.
In the video, Busch claimed that she analyzed the “system log files” for election tabulators, which help count the ballots.
“Tabulators are not to exceed an error rate of .002, or 1 in 500 ballots,” she said, referring to the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) standard. “On Election Day, Maricopa County used 476 tabulators. Not one of them met EAC standard. As a matter of fact, they averaged 235 times the EAC standard. Rejecting over 1/4 of a million ballots.”
As well as retweeting the video, Lake wrote: “WOW Shelby Busch went through the system log files for the machines in Maricopa County, and found that not a single tabulator met standards on Election Day. NOT ONE.” “
