“On November 7, 2020, an anonymous report of election system fraud was made to the United States Department of Justice and ALL members of the Arizona House and Senate. The allegation that 35,000 fictitious votes had been entered into the Pima County election was related by an individual who claimed to be in the room when the plan was revealed to lower-level Pima County Democratic Party leaders.
“Over the last 12 months a few Members of the Legislature and resources from various election integrity organizations have conducted a quiet, but fruitful investigation into the substance and reliability of the allegation.
“Our elections are a system, and systems require active maintenance. Without attention to detail, the bureaucratic machine inevitably runs amok. We are elected to identify defects and fix them.” Rep. Biasiucci
“We found significant discrepancies in the Maricopa County Election through the audit, which gives us all pause to consider what has happened in other counties? To think that we would not find similar problems in other counties is not a credible position for any elected official to take.” Sen. Sonny Borrelli
“With consent of the Governed goes the right of the Governed to to examine, and if warranted, conduct an audit of the elections that they participate in. Elections belong to the People, not the government.” Rep. Finchem
On November 30, 2020, we held a Public Hearing on Election Integrity that gave the public an opportunity to present evidence and sworn testimony to the joint panel of Members of the State Legislature regarding the 2020 General Election. The mission of the Public Hearing on Election Integrity was to, “receive evidence and testimony that could serve to prove or disprove alleged discrepancies in the 2020 General Election.” Arizona citizens and expert witnesses submitted sworn affidavits, under penalty of perjury, to the panel detailing inconsistencies they encountered during the election process.
Pima County voters who have first-person knowledge of a violation of Arizona elections law, a violation of the Arizona Elections Procedure Manual, and who may have physical evidence are asked to contact Sen. Kelly Townsend (LD-16) at 602-926-4467.
This hearing will be held with the same objective. Press organizations may contact 602-826-7300 for information on access.
