Kari Lake was the Phoenix area’s top-rated news anchor before resigning early this year over the establishment media’s left-wing bias in a move that made national headlines. Only a few months later, Lake announced her decision to run for governor of Arizona. On Saturday, Lake attended the “Rally to Protect Our Elections” in downtown Phoenix, an event hosted by the conservative group Turning Point USA and featuring former President Donald Trump. During the rally, Lake spoke with The Western Journal about the Maricopa County presidential election audit. In her opinion, one of the more troubling revelations from the audit has been the county’s lack of transparency. “The way we’re seeing our public officials, our elected officials, reacting, I think it makes them look very guilty,” Lake told The Western Journal. “They’re not acting like innocent people.” During an exclusive interview with The Western Journal conducted on Thursday, Arizona Senate President Karen Fann revealed that “Maricopa County has intentionally done everything in their power to sabotage [the audit], to withhold information” and “to be less than honest with the public” regarding the audit.
