The Arizona Supreme Court’s Attorney Discipline Probable Cause Committee has determined that there is “probable cause” to file complaints against Kari Lake’s former attorneys, Bryan Blehm and Kurt Olsen.

This comes following her unsuccessful bid for the 2022 Arizona gubernatorial race as a Republican, in which she filed multiple lawsuits challenging the election results—particularly those from Maricopa County—and sought to have them nullified.

Andrew Parker and Mark Finchem represented Lake in another case concerning voting machines used before the 2022 elections, which the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed in October 2023.

Additionally, Blehm and Olsen were reprimanded by the Arizona Supreme Court for again bringing forward claims of fraud involving more than 35,000 ballots during May 2023.

As such, proceedings may now move forward with formal complaints against them.

“Although Lake may have permissibly argued that an inference could be made that some ballots were added, there is no evidence that 35,563 ballots were, and, more to the point here, this was certainly disputed,” Chief Justice Robert Brutinel wrote in the sanctions order.

An additional complaint has been filed against Blehm concerning a post he made on X (formerly Twitter). He alleged that the Supreme Court Task Force on Countering Disinformation, which is headed by Brutinel, was created as part of a CIA-led effort to cover up cases of election fraud.

Blehm has denied any wrongdoings and stated that his tweet was meant to indicate that the Arizona judiciary was deceived by the national security apparatus to restrict attorney speech and deter them from presenting valid claims on behalf of their clients.

The claims Olsen and Parker presented in court, such as Maricopa County’s voting systems being connected to the Internet and Arizona not using paper ballots, are the foundation of this separate complaint against them.

In response, Arizona Senate requested an examination with results showing these allegations were unsubstantiated.

Following review by an intake lawyer and referral for screening investigation, probable cause is now the third step in Arizona attorney disciplinary process. Formal hearings presided over by a judge or disciplinary agreements could be put into effect to resolve grievances.

On Monday, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), an advocate of former President Donald Trump’s America-centric policy agenda, endorsed Lake’s campaign for U.S. Senate against Independent incumbent Kyrsten Sinema.

This endorsement comes amid the ongoing legal proceedings and further signals what is expected to be a highly competitive race in a new swing state.

“Kari Lake is the fighter Arizona needs to secure the border, unleash American Energy Independence, and lower the cost of living. Joe Biden’s policies have been a disaster for Arizona and Kari Lake will stand up to the Biden agenda and put Arizonans first. Let’s send Kari to the Senate and take back the majority,” Cotton told Fox News Digital in a statement.

“I am grateful for the endorsement of Sen. Cotton, someone who served our country honorably in the military and has been a conservative warrior in the Senate. I look forward to working with Sen. Cotton to secure our border and get America back on track from Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer’s far-left agenda,” Lake told the outlet.

Sinema has yet to confirm her intent to run for re-election. Rep. Reuben Gallego (D-Ariz.) has also launched a campaign for the seat.
