It is a conflict of interest?
Democrat Katie Hobbs, the party’s candidate to be governor of Arizona, is holding a small lead in the race over Republican Kari Lake as the last few percentages of precincts are counted – a week after the fact of the election.
And as the state’s elections chief as secretary of state, she could be in the position to certify her own election.
Which has raised objections from Lake, who suggested Hobbs should recuse, because of the apparent conflict.
Fox News reported that Lake believes the situation is a “major ethical problem” and that, “Obviously, just the optics of it looks bad.”
Lake said, “We called for her to recuse herself July of last year of 2021, right after we got into the race, recognizing that there’s a major ethical problem there. Obviously, just the optics of it looks bad. And she didn’t do that.
“Even though many people been calling for her to recuse herself, it creates problems to say the least,” Lake continued.
Lake, who has raised repeatedly the issue of election security in the campaign, said, “She will be the one that would certify the election. She has a lot to do with registration, voter registration, all kinds of things … voter rolls and advising counties on how many ballots they’ll need.”

Lake remained a few thousand votes behind on Monday as more ballot dumps were being reported by the state.
“We have election season here. We start voting about a month before Election Day, and we keep counting after Election Day — forever. And we’re in the process of still counting the votes and there are about 300,000 ballots that have not been counted, this is according to the county recorder,” she said.
An anti-Lake columnist at AZCentral said Lake’s chances “seem more like an illusion.”
The commentary claimed that none of the complaints about computer failures, voting irregularities and more are “sticking.”
The facts remain, however, that during the 2020 presidential election, there were several factors that studies and polling suggest actually took the victory away from President Trump and gave it to Joe Biden.
That’s besides the various state laws and regulations that were violated, or simply ignored, often concerning mail-in ballots, during the voting process.
In that election, one factor was the FBI’s decision to interfere in the vote by telling social media to suppress “Russian disinformation.” However, it was not disinformation, it was accurate reporting about the Biden family’s very odd income coming from enemies of the U.S., including China and Russia. Surveys show had that information been readily available, Biden would not have won.
The other influence was Mark Zuckerberg’s $400 million plus that was handed out to local elections officials, who often used it to recruit voters from Democrat districts.
While those specific campaigns were not repeated for the 2022 midterms, the essence of their agenda was. It’s been learned that government agencies have a backdoor channel to several foundations that would wait for Biden administration officials to tell them want perspectives to suppress online, and the foundations then would complain to social media companies until those views were censored.
Further, Biden issued an executive order for all government agencies to recruit voters – often from Democrat districts – replacing the campaign Zuckerberg launched earlier.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?
Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”
Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
