ROLL THE LAKE TAPES: Kari Lake Encouraged Cochise Supervisors To Risk Arrest before Indictment

ARIZONA -– The thirteenth edition of The Lake Tapes shows that Kari Lake’s words have consequences. In 2022, Kari Lake called for delaying the certification of Arizona’s midterm elections, going so far as to say she wished that “one of these board of supervisors would stand up and say, ‘Then come on and arrest me. Bring it. Put the cuffs on and haul me out.’”

Two members of the Cochise County Board of Supervisors listened to her. Last week, they were indicted.

  • On November 12th:Yes, I agree with Steve Bannon, anyone who thinks Joe Biden won 81 million votes does not have a grip on reality.”
  • On November 24th: “I believe that the majority of Americans do not believe that Joe Biden got 81 million votes. It’s a It’s fantasy. If you think that you didn’t get 81 million votes, it’s impossible. It’s impossible.
