State Bar of Arizona’s Disciplinary Panel Suspends Law License of Kari Lake’s Attorney Bryan Blehm for Challenging Election Illegalities

The State Bar of Arizona’s (SBA) disciplinary panel, led by Napolitano-appointed Judge Margaret Downie, suspended the law license of Kari Lake’s attorney Bryan Blehm on Friday for 60 days over what the panel found were violations of ethic rules. The suspension goes into effect on July 7.

The panel’s decision stems from Blehm’s statement a pleading that 35,563 ballots were inserted into the 2022 election. The Arizona Supreme Court sanctioned him $2,000 for the statement.

“What they’re going to do is they’re going to sanction the f*** out of me with costs and fees to try to prevent me from practicing law again.” Blehm said in a video posted on X discussing the matter Friday afternoon. “That’s what the end result is going to be.”

But Maricopa County did not dispute the accusation that they had no chain-of-custody records regarding the retrieval and/or delivery of 35,563 ballot affidavit envelopes. Failing to document chain of custody for ballots is a class 2 misdemeanor.
