Arizona AG Launches Investigation Into Maricopa County 'Election Irregularities'

The Arizona attorney general's office has launched an investigation into irregularities in Maricopa County's handling of the midterm elections.

AG Mark Brnovich's election integrity unit has demanded a full report of well-publicized irregularities, and what he claims is evidence of "statutory violations."

The letter, sent late Saturday by Assistant AG Jennifer Wright to the county's top civil division attorney, Thomas Liddy, is a major escalation over widespread problems with voting tabulators and printers, which delayed the declaration of a winner in razor-thin races in the attorney general's race and the gubernatorial race.

Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has questioned the media's premature declaration that her opponent, Democrat Katie Hobbs - who wasn't exactly popular, won.

The letter demands a full report on how voting machine and printer issues were handled, along with a copy of each polling location's Official Ballot Report, as well as explanations for any discrepancies.

Wright also demanded that the evidence be turned over before the final vote certification which is due Nov. 28.

"These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law," reads the letter. "Furthermore, statements made by both Chairman Gates and Recorder Richer, along with information Maricopa County released through official modes of communication appear to confirm potential statutory violations of title 16."

Among the potential legal violations are poll workers giving improper instructions to voters whose ballot tabulations were delayed by the issues.

"Maricopa County appears to have failed to adhere to the statutory guidelines in segregating, counting, tabulating, tallying, and transporting the ‘Door 3’ ballots," wrote Wright. "In fact, Maricopa County has admitted that in some voting locations, ‘Door 3’ non-tabulated ballots were commingled with tabulated ballots at the voting location.

"Further, we have received a sworn complaint from an election observer indicating that more than 1700 “Door 3” non-tabulated ballots from one voting location were placed in black duffle bags that were intended to be used for...

Yeah? Reminds me of women who get a restraining order from the courts, against abusive boyfriends and husbands. Trump had as much luck with the courts as she will. Still, go for it.

Brnovich. Ha!

After the 2020 'irregularities', the Board of Supervisors of Maricopa County unlawfully stood firm against the state Senate and AG Brnovich. This constituted additional malfeasance and opened members of the Board, individually and corporately, to criminal prosecution. Yet that did not happen. But hey, try harder next time.

Well, 2022 was next time. And here we are, nothing happened in the last two years to stop the wide scale cheating. Not even to make it tougher to cheat. A big fat goose egg. That's Brnovich.

Not even a public disclosure of any sort of investigation into the obvious conflict of Hobbes, Sect of State managing the electoral process which included Hobbes, candidate for Governor.

Look!, squirrel.

Don't forget that despite massive resistance, there was finally a forensic audit of Maricopa County's vote/ballot count of 2020. Over 53,000 votes, for a variety of reasons like dead people voting, multiple votes from the same address, votes from people registered in other counties or states...should never have been counted. That was in Maricopa County ALONE.

Trump lost Arizona by 10,000 votes.

The media instantly ridiculed it and then memory holed it.
