(SNews) – GOP rockstar Kari Lake has just scored a big win after the Arizona Supreme Court ordered a hearing on her allegations of signature verification violations in Maricopa County.
The Court ordered court proceedings to take place “forthwith” regarding Lake’s 2022 Arizona gubernatorial election challenge.
While granting one sanction, the Supreme Court denied attorneys’ fees requested by the defendants.
Republican Lake fell about 17,000 votes short in the 2022 election against then-Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat.
Lake is suing now-Governor Hobbs in addition to current Secretary of State Adrian Fontes and Maricopa County election officials.
She is requesting that the election results be invalidated or that she be declared the winner.
Lake’s case was reviewed by the Arizona Supreme Court in March.
The Court remanded one of her seven counts to trial court and allowed sanctions against her to be considered.
The remanded count was Lake’s claim that Maricopa County violated its signature verification policies in the 2022 election.
The signature verification allegation was remanded to the Maricopa County Superior Court.
I am so excited that our case is moving forward!
I will not stop until we restore election integrity to the good people of Arizona. https://t.co/FqLqRE8srg
