The Arizona Court of Appeals held a private conference Wednesday in Kari Lake's election challenge, as a state Senate panel is hearing explosive allegations of 2022 election failures in Maricopa County, and the Democrat Secretary of State seeks to have Lake, the 2022 GOP nominee for governor, prosecuted for tweeting evidence from the public Senate hearings of mismatched ballot signatures.

The appeals court's conference was regarding Lake's appeal of a December decision in Maricopa County Superior Court rejecting her election lawsuit against county election officials and Gov. Katie Hobbs. Lake's suit alleged that numerous irregularities in the 2022 gubernatorial election, including election machine issues in nearly 60% of the county's 115 vote centers, effectively suppressed heavily Republican Election Day vote.

The court reviewed Lake's case two days after she was separately referred for criminal prosecution by Democratic Arizona Secretary of State Adrian Fontes to Attorney General Kris Mayes regarding a Lake tweet about Senate testimony on the improper counting of ballots with mismatched signatures.

"Today's Senate Testimony CONFIRMS nearly 40,000 ballots illegally counted (10% of the signatures reviewed)," Lake tweeted on Jan. 23. "I think all the 'Election Deniers' out there deserve an apology."
