AZ Assistant AG Tackles Voting Error In Maricopa County, Issues Final Demand

Assistant Atty. Gen. Jennifer Wright sent a letter Saturday to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office demanding explanations for the election issues before the results can be certified next week. As of now, Republican Kari Lake refuses to concede to Democrat Katie Hobbs who only has a lead by a very small margin because the voters experienced a barrage of issues on election day that have yet to be clarified.

Maricopa County reported experiencing issues with their verified printers, machines, and even paper ballot organization. So much so that now two weeks later, it’s still a convoluted mess so the assistant AG has been compelled to intervene.

“The Elections Integrity Unit of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office has received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County,” Wright wrote. “These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law.”

“Arizonans deserve a full report and accounting of the myriad problems that occurred in relation to Maricopa County’s administration of the 2022 General Election,” she continued. “As the canvass is looming, and these issues relate to Maricopa County’s ability to lawfully certify election results – the Unit requests a response to the aforementioned issues on or before Maricopa County submits its official canvass to the Secretary of State, which must occur on or before November 28, 2022.

Thomas Liddy, the civil division chief at the Maricopa County’s Attorney’s Office, told Fox News Digital that his office will start gathering the materials necessary to respond to Wright’s letter.

“I saw a copy of the letter Saturday evening,” Liddy said. “I will convene with my clients and begin the process of gathering the materials necessary to respond. As you are undoubtedly aware, Ms. Wright is still working on the AG’s Final Report of the 2020 election. I am looking forward to receiving that as well.”

Watch

There has always been some questions made over the years as to the validity of final results from both parties but you have to admit, with the addition of the new voting machines and practices nothing has gone smoothly.
