Arizona GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake said that she wants the entire Maricopa County Board of Supervisors recalled due to their incompetence in handling the 2022 election.
"We need to recall everyone at the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors — especially Bill Gates and Stephen Richer," Lake said on Tuesday's edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "These two men in charge of this election started a Super PAC to raise money and try to defeat me and they were in charge of the election when I'm on the ballot."
Lake has recently filed a petition to transfer her appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court after her election fraud lawsuit was dismissed.
The Arizona Republican lost her gubernatorial bid to Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, but has since alleged that rampant voting irregularities in Maricopa County prevented many would-be Lake voters from casting their ballots.
She said she believes there was bad intent when it came to how Gates and Richer ran the election.
"They are unprofessional or incompetent," Lake said. "I believe there was malicious intent with those men's behavior when it came to our elections. So we have a lot of work to do, but it's not going to happen with a person like Katie Hobbs stealing the governor's office."
The petition was filed by Lake and her legal team Jan. 1.
"I believe in free, fair, honest and transparent elections and I will not stop fighting until we get those in Arizona," she concluded. "This is about making sure the voice of Arizona is heard."
