On Monday, Arizona counties were threateningly told they had to certify their elections despite ongoing investigations into election-day issues. County board members who delayed certification were intimidated with arrest and felony charges. Ron Gould of the Mohave County Board of Supervisors said Mojave county was certified under duress. “I found out today that I have no choice but to vote “Aye” or I will be arrested and charged with a felony.”

Kari Lake, Arizona’s Republican Governor candidate, spoke out against the coercion, saying, “This isn’t the America you and I grew up in, folks.”
Yavapai County was also threatened to certify under duress. “The entire Board of Supervisors, with one Democrat exception, expressed a belief the election had serious errors, but were told by the County Attorney, Deputy Attorney, and County Administrator they MUST certify today or face Class 6 felony charges.”


In Maricopa County, which may be the epicenter of election issues, investigative reporter and founder of Frontline America, Ben Bergquam, joined poll workers and grassroots citizens to protest the election certification. Grassroots members waited in long lines to testify, singing the national anthem in unison. Bergquam, along with Gateway Pundit’s Jordan Conradson, were denied media access to the election office.

Bergquam spoke before the County board and warned against certifying, saying,

“My message to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors and the County Elections Officials on their vote to certify the 2022 elections! The only thing they’ll be certifying is their corruption!”

Lake posted a detailed overview of Arizona’s election problems, highlighting Maricopa county and discussing her intent to continue fighting for a fair election, despite the decision to certify the botched election.

Lake said, “Arizona, it’s Kari Lake, and I wanted to update you on what’s happening in our fight against Arizona’s sham elections and those who run them. For starters, I want you to know that I am firmly in this fight with you. Maricopa County just couldn’t wait to certify their botched election, the botched election where half of Election Day voting centers were inoperable, the botched election where Election Day printers caused mayhem across the county, the botched election where Arizonans were expected to wait in line two, three, four, even five hours simply to exercise their sacred right to vote. Arizonans were told to throw their vote into a drawer, where it might ultimately end up in a plastic bin or a trash bag. Maricopa County, where it took two weeks to count, is the poster child for broken, botched elections. But, if you bring up any of these issues, you are labeled an election denier or a conspiracy theorist.

They don’t want us talking about our shoddy elections under any circumstances. They shut us down and made us fear exercising our freedom of speech, and they canceled anyone who questioned past elections. Because of that, many Americans did not speak out, and nothing was done to shore up elections. And now, we are paying the price again. Arizona, America, if we do not stand up and speak up right now about the most dishonest elections in the history of Arizona, I truly fear for our future. Our sacred vote is supposed to be the great equalizer of the people. And right now, our vote has been trampled upon. We must work hard right now to save it. This is our last chance. Those of you who are speaking out about what happened on November 8, those who testified before the corrupt Board of Supervisors, thank you, and God bless each of you. I am with you.

Here’s what I’m busy working on. I’m working with a team of patriotic, talented lawyers on a legal case to challenge the botched elections. My team and I realize how important this case is and what is at stake. We will file this case in accordance with Arizona state law. And you will want to stay tuned for this one. Trust me.”
