Democrat Arizona gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs looks like a total fool after jumping to conclusions and insinuating her GOP challenger Kari Lake incited someone to vandalize her campaign headquarters.
On Wednesday, the Hobbs campaign issued an official statement revealing its headquarters had been broken into before telling voters “Kari Lake and her allies have been spreading dangerous misinformation and inciting threats against anyone they see fit.”
“The threats against Arizonans attempting to exercise their constitutional rights and their attacks on elected officials are the direct result of a concerted campaign of lies and intimidation. It won’t work,” the Hobbs statement added.
The Drudge Report ran a headline reading, “Hobbs Blasts Kari Lake for ‘Inciting Threats’ After Campaign HQ Burglarized…”
On Thursday, CNN reporter Kate Sullivan asked Kari Lake about the Hobbs campaign headquarters robbery and if she had a response to the Hobbs team insinuating she was responsible.
“That is absolutely absurd,” Lake answered. “And, are you guys buying that? Are you really buying that? Because this sounds like a Jussie Smollet part two. So, you’re going to drag the American people through something like this?”
She continued, “Obviously, you don’t want to cover the real story today, which we are up eleven percent in the polls and you want to distract the people with an old story. I can’t believe she would blame my amazing people or blame me for something like that. I don’t even know where her campaign office is, I’m assuming it’s in a basement somewhere because that’s where she’s been campaigning.”
Later on Thursday, Phoenix police announced the arrest of 36-year-old illegal alien Daniel Mota Dos Reis in connection with the Hobbs campaign headquarters break-in.
Dos Reis was recognized by an officer viewing security camera footage of the Hobbs HQ theft because the suspect was arrested previously that same day for a different burglary.
The situation is ironic on many levels, with one being that the man is illegal and Kari Lake is strong and outspoken about strengthening the border while Hobbs is weak on immigration.
It’s also ironic because the homeless illegal immigrant was released from police custody hours after committing a separate crime thanks to soft-on-crime Democrat policies like the ones supported by Hobbs.
Lastly, in the most shocking example of irony, the suspect allegedly describes himself on Facebook as a pro-mask “Democrat,” according to Western Journal.
Dos Reis was re-arrested and booked on one count of third-degree burglary in relation to the Hobbs campaign HQ incident.
The Katie Hobbs campaign is giving Democrat Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman’s campaign a run for its money when it comes to the most disastrous political attempt in recent American history.
