Two dozen Republican members from Arizona called for the decertification of their state’s fraudulent election results on Monday, Dec. 7.
The members released a joint statement at a press conference, and it comes after GOP Gov. Doug Ducey and Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs certified the state’s general election results last week.
“The election should not have been certified with the number of irregularities and allegations of fraud,” said Republican House Majority Leader Warren Petersen in a statement. “Especially troubling to me are the allegations surrounding the vendor Dominion,” Petersen added, in reference to Dominion Voting Systems.
“It is imperative that a forensic audit occur immediately of the equipment and software. Upon any showing of fraud, the legislature should immediately convene to decertify the vote,” he added.

State Rep. Walter Blackman said the outcome of the recent election “is far from certain.”
“In the past week seemingly conclusive evidence has come to light through successful litigation that the outcome of the 2020 election is far from certain, and at the very least, further investigation is necessary to ensure the integrity of Arizona’s election results,” Blackman said, according to the group statement, reported BizPacReview.
“It is imperative that Secretary of State Hobbs rescind her certification of the election until these matters have made their way through the court and voter confidence is restored,” Petersen said in the release.
Rep.-elect Jake Hoffman said the voters have a right to fair elections. “Ensuring the integrity of Arizona’s 2020 election isn’t just a matter of sound public policy, it is a civil rights imperative,” he said. “There are few elements of our society more foundational than the right to free and fair elections and when that right is called into question it is our responsibility as leaders to ensure that confidence in the electoral process is restored.”
“To this end, Arizona must decertify the 2020 election so that the numerous election irregularities may be properly adjudicated and the people of our great state may once again have faith in their right to vote,” he added.
Despite all the testimony from witnesses in Arizona that demonstrated inconsistencies in the voting system Ducey has bragged about the Arizona election process.
I’ve been pretty outspoken about Arizona’s election system, and bragged about it quite a bit, including in the Oval Office. And for good reason. 1/

According to election results, President Trump was defeated by Joe Biden by almost 10,500 votes, and Ducey certified the results on Nov. 30.
On Monday, Texas filed suit against several battleground states at the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing that changes made to voting procedures and voting rules by officials were unconstitutional, thus nullifying the election results.
