On Wednesday, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich joined the battle for a severe and thorough audit of election equipment and ballot images in controversial Maricopa County, suspected of aberrant voter fraud.
According to The Gateway Pundit, the fight against fraud in Arizona, one of the states at the center of criticism and the focus of investigations, has, since Wednesday had the state attorney general, Mark Brnovich, join with requests for audits in those countries like Maricopa that cannot explain the irregularities reported.
Without any logic, beyond attempting to hide something, a couple of weeks ago, the Maricopa Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to refuse to comply with legislative citations requesting the Dominion voting machines’ delivery.
Hundreds of witnesses, in their sworn statements, detailed the election irregularities. The machines were requested to carry out a forensic audit on them to determine any supporting information.
Instead of supporting transparency and ensuring free and fair elections, as their duties and responsibilities indicate, far from it, they filed a complaint in the High Court to protect themselves from their decision to ignore machines’ request.
In the face of this nonsense, Prosecutor Brnovich presented a report detailing his support for the Senate subpoenas to achieve a proper and urgent audit of the electoral team.
In his report, the prosecutor listed some main points arguing why the Board should agree to the request.
First, Brnovich said the Arizona Legislature has ample constitutional and statutory authority to issue such subpoenas.
Second, the president of either chamber or the chairman of any committee has sufficient power to issue citations to a county in connection with the administration of elections.
Third, citations issued to political subdivisions, such as a county, should not present a problem of separation of powers.
According to the latest official statistics report, Arizona reported a 79.9% voter turnout, the highest in the country. It was also the highest turnout in the state’s history.
In light of this situation and the continued influx of lawsuits for vote counting irregularities in the Dominion voting machine system, Arizona state legislative leaders have called for an urgent audit of Dominion’s voting software and equipment in Maricopa County on Dec. 4.

You can read the Arizona Legislature’s press release:
“Senate President Karen Fann and House Speaker Rusty Bowers today called for an independent audit of Dominion software and equipment used by Maricopa County in the 2020 general election.
Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey is at the center of the conflict for rushing to sign legislation to have the most populous county, Maricopa County, use Dominion machines in the 2020 election. Maricopa County generally determines the winner in Arizona.
His attitude was strongly criticized, both by his fellow Republicans and by President Trump himself. When Ducey decided to certify the alleged victory of Democratic candidate Biden on Nov. 30, the President wrote a harsh message on his Twitter account dedicated to the Arizona governor saying:
“Why is he rushing to put a Democrat in office, especially when so many horrible things concerning voter fraud are being revealed at the hearing going on right now. @OANN What is going on with @dougducey? Republicans will long remember!”
