Democrat Katie Hobbs was sworn in as governor of Arizona in January 2023, but her opponent Kari Lake and other right-wing figures claim officials in the US state's largest county swung the vote by "illegally breaking into sealed election machines" during the 2022 midterms. This is false; authorities say the video shared as purported evidence shows routine election preparation, and allegations of meddling failed in court.
