Arizona AG launches investigation into Maricopa County

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office sent a letter on Friday regarding why the office has not complied with subpoenas from the Arizona State Senate.

The letter’s attachment claimed Sen. Sonny Borrelli’s requests had not been granted. The requests included, “All user names, passwords, pins and/or security keys or tokens required to access” voting machines.

The request had also sought information on, “All routers used in connection with the November 3, 2020 general election,” as well as, “All splunk logs, network logs, net flows, or similar data.”

The Latest Development

The move is the latest development in the months-long battle to audit the votes of the state’s largest county. Biden was declared the winner of Arizona by about 10,000 votes.

The Associated Press reported, “Biden is only the second Democrat in 70 years to win Arizona. In the final tally, he beat Trump by 10,457 votes, or 0.3 percent of the nearly 3.4 million ballots cast.”

Breitbart News reported, “The announcement of the investigation is the latest development in the contentious relationship between the Arizona State Senate and Maricopa County officials since even before the forensic election audit began on April 23.”

It added, “Sources familiar with the audit process tell Breitbart News the final report is expected to be submitted by September, though that timeline may be extended depending on the results of the most recent subpoena requests and the Attorney General’s investigation.”

The Background

Jack Sellers of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors had written a letter in response to the subpoena blasting the request.

“It is now August of 2021. The election of November 2020 is over. If you haven’t figured out that the election in Maricopa County was free, fair and accurate yet, I’m not sure you ever will,” he wrote.

“The reason you haven’t finished your ‘audit’ is because you hired people who have no experience and little understanding of how professional elections are run,” he added.

The unfortunate political fighting has hurt the process to complete the forensic audit. Democrats continue to argue the audit is not being conducted accurately, while Republicans argue Democrats seek to cover up problems with the state’s votes.

To complicate the matter further, Attorney General Brnovich is running for U.S. Senate in Arizona. The battle will likely continue without a complete resolution, leaving a level of mystery regarding the entire matter.
