Failed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, a low-rent Leona Helmsley with filters, is finding herself in possible legal trouble after Arizona's top election official has requested an investigation into the election-denying fabulist. Kari is being scrutinized over potential campaign violations involving the disclosure of voter signatures. And that's a big no-no. It's a Class 6 felony.

The Washington Post reports:

The complaint could set up a legal showdown in the battleground state between a prominent conservative election denier backed by Trump and two newly-elected Democrats who campaigned with messages of strengthening public trust in elections.

The referral from Secretary of State Adrian Fontes (D) to Attorney General Kris Mayes (D) comes as Lake has doubled down on her unproven claims that the administration of the state's midterm elections resulted in her loss. The Washington Post has obtained a copy of the referral.

A Lake aide did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

As part of her grievances, a Jan. 23 tweet from Lake's account claimed 40,000 ballots didn't match voter signatures that Arizona had on record. The tweet included a graphic containing images of 16 voter signatures.

Just look at this fool:

Most people know you are not supposed to show voter signatures, including even tweeting your own after you vote. You can't do that. But Kari wanted to live in the Governor's mansion but had zero political experience.

Just like Trump when he ran for president.

I'm starting to see a pattern here.
