Popular podcast host Joe Rogan said during one of his segments that former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake's election case may not be "invalid" and there seemed to be "real fraud" in the 2022 gubernatorial election.
“That Kari Lake stuff in Arizona that they’re trying to dismiss — it doesn’t look like that’s invalid. It looks like there’s real fraud there. It looks like there’s some real shenanigans there,” Rogan said during a Wednesday episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
Since losing to current Arizona Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs, Lake has contested the results of the 2022 election in court, arguing that thousands of Republican voters were disenfranchised on Election Day when voting machine errors occurred in at least 60% of the voting centers in Maricopa County. She also pointed out major problems with the signature verification process for mail-in ballots.
“How much election fraud do you think is real?” Rogan asked his guest, Patrick Bet-David, an entrepreneur and author.
“I think we could all agree it’s not zero,” he continued. “And we know that these voting machines can be f***ed with. And we know that there’s some irregularities."
Last month, Lake filed an appeal with the Arizona Supreme Court in her election case, which alleges that at least 8,000 unreadable ballots were misconfigured.
"People are waking up," Lake wrote on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. "62% of Americans believe there is fraud in our elections. Arizonans witnessed it firsthand in November. And @joerogan & @patrickbetdavid are brave enough to speak the truths that the pravda press doesn't want the public to hear."
She has vowed to take her election lawsuit all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary.
