Katie Hobbs' Cowardly Response When Cornered About Attack on Kari Lake

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs’ campaign office was broken into this week, and the response from Hobbs was ridiculous. She used it as an opportunity to attack her opponent–even though there was no evidence that Kari Lake or her team had anything to do with it.

Hobbs’ statement lied about Lake, saying she and her supporters contributed to the incident by “spreading dangerous misinformation and inciting threats against anyone they see fit.”

As we reported, Kari Lake filleted that ridiculous statement and called Hobbs out for sounding “like Jussie Smollett part two.”

Lake pointed out that the real story is that she’s 11 points up in the polls, and the Hobbs statement was an attempt to deflect from or puncture that lead. She pointed out that she didn’t even know where Hobbs’ office was: “I don’t even know where her campaign office is,” she said. “I’m assuming it’s in a basement somewhere because that’s where she’s been campaigning.”

There’s been an arrest made, and there will be more information coming from local authorities. But so far, there’s no indication that there was any political connection involved in the burglary at all.

Now that the arrest has been made, the media cornered Hobbs on whether she was sticking by the statement that her team had put out earlier and if she had evidence of what she had claimed. But Hobbs showed the character that she’s exhibited throughout this campaign so far in what is one cowardly response.

“I’m not talking about, I’m not talking about the break-in today. I’m not talking about the break-in,” Hobbs simpered. “I think access to safe and legal abortion is kind of a big deal and that’s what we’re here to talk about.”

Now, she’s not talking? She wants to drop a big lie about her opponent when she has no evidence, and then she wants to back off? What a slimy way for anyone to act. Her staffer says they’re not going to make a statement at this time? Too late, they already skewered themselves with their malarkey.

Hobbs will only talk about what she wants to talk about, when she wants to talk about it. That’s the same kind of dismissive attitude she has about debating. She doesn’t think that the people of Arizona have a right to question her on her positions/statements. She doesn’t feel she has to support the claims that she makes. Hobbs just keeps racking up reasons why people shouldn’t vote for her.
