Lake’s Attorney: Latest Attack ‘Another Attempt To Weaponize Justice System’

  • Arizona Democratic Secretary of State Adrian Fontes sent a letter to Attorney General Kris Mayes (D) Monday, requesting she investigate Republican Kari Lake for allegedly violating state law by sharing images of voter signatures on social media.
  • Tim LaSota, one of Lake’s attorneys, accused Fontes of selectively quoting the law to defame Lake.
  • “This is becoming all too common in politics – another attempt to weaponize the justice system with a phony allegation against a Republican. Adrian Fontes selectively quotes the statute in an attempt to distort the law and smear Kari Lake in the process. Kris Mayes should immediately say that she will have no part in this shameful, disgusting effort,” LaSota said in a statement emailed to The Arizona Sun Times.
