Way back on Wednesday of this week, the Kari Lake campaign threw a hissy fit about being declared the loser of her race for AZ governor in a video they posted on Instagram and elsewhere. On Friday the Petty estate sent a message to Lake stating they’re looking into taking legal action against the obnoxious republican who used the song without permission.
I won’t link to the Lake video in question out of respect and solidarity with the Petty estate.
