Maricopa Supervisor Is Offended As He Counts Ballots Like It’s Botswana

After slow-rolling the count of the gubernatorial election, Maricopa County Supervisor Bill Gates said he was offended that Republican candidate Kari Lake Thursday criticized it. Botswana only took three days to count their ballots, and they have nowhere near Bill Gates’s budget.

“Quite frankly, it’s offensive for Kari Lake to say that these people behind me are slow rolling this when they’re working 14 to 18 hours. So I really hope this is the end of that now. We can be patient and respect the results when they come out,” Gates said in remarks to a local station broadcast on CNN Friday.

Mrs. Lake didn’t criticize the counters.

She’s not insulting the counters. She’s saying he is a bad manager for slow-rolling the counting. He must think the best defense is a good offense.

Lake currently trails Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, 50.7% to 49.3%, with 78% of the votes in, according to the New York Times. She accused election officials of “slow rolling” the count during a Thursday appearance on Newsmax.

GATES SHOULD BE EMBARRASSED

Gates should be embarrassed. Instead, he turned it around and tried to make Republicans the bad guys. Republicans simply don’t want Third World elections.

Lake criticized handling the 2022 election after over 20% of ballot tabulators malfunctioned Tuesday, prompting an unsuccessful lawsuit to extend voting hours in Maricopa County.

“They got to fix this problem. This is incompetency. I hope it’s not malice,” Lake said Tuesday after voting. “But we are going to fix it, we are going to win, and when we win, there’s going to be a ‘come to Jesus’ for elections in Arizona.”

Taking a week to count votes with new ballots showing up after the election destroys trust in the system, and it is slow-rolling.

Democrats condemn people who expect efficiency; somehow, that’s fine with the media and everyone involved. Is Kari Lake the only one who sees the problem here? In the clip below, CNN doesn’t question Gates, who is wilfully or not, inept. Why didn’t they have a video clip of Kari’s statement? When will people stop buying into the corporate narrative?

Watch:
We hope Mrs. Lake is right:

Of course, it’s not incompetence. It’s ballot fraud. The strategy is to drag out the counting until people’s attention wavers and, then, to sneak in the phony ballots, certify the Dem candidates, and defy anyone to do anything about the cheat. We see this over and over.

If he’s offended now, just think how he’s gonna to feel when his incompetence has infuriated people to the point of demanding a full audit… and he has to count everything all over again; especially after finding 300k ballots from back in August that were never counted in the primaries.

These guys AZ and NV are pathetic!!

Republican majority in AZ State legislature – why did they do nothing to ensure safe and fair elections after 2020?

Small majority, commie Dem governor (veto power). But they COULD have organized watchers and have the police check the delivery vans that show up hours after polls closed (like 12:30 am, no honest reason for that). For these “mystery deliveries”, get the ID and photo and fingerprints of the people in the truck, and do a quick scan of the boxes and see what is there. If they are obviously fake, arrest those people and force them to tell who was behind the fraud. Then deport them to Mexico.

Sure…we have to fix this problem. Except we now say that after every cycle as if each is the first Democrat steal. Republicans fill the intervening years by helping the Dems cover up what they’ve done and help them stop anyone complaining. Then it all starts again. The pundits are all shocked anew.

Kill a commie, save the world. This won’t be posted but the only way out of this is to start shooting, and that is a fact

Exactly right. In 1969 in the beautiful vacation spot of RVN, our motto was “kill a commie for mommy”. But mommy is long gone, so I’ll do it for the team (Americans – enemies of Marxist Dems).

All Americans should read the excellent series (now 7 books, starting with “People’s Republic”) by Kurt Schlichter on the extreme “Woking” of the USA, the red-blue split, and the chaos that ensues in the blue zones (no food, occasional electricity and water, no health care, no middle class. His books (he starting writing in 2014) were supposed to have greatly exaggerated conditions and outcomes, but looking at today’s mess he was right on the money. So was George Orwell (“1984”).

I am in southern Oregon, and only seven counties are blue (all up north) and they control every election. Most of the state is red, with talk (and five passed county measures) of forming a “Greater Idaho”. If the international seaport in Portland were to be shut down, they would wither and die from bankruptcy.
