Arizona Senate Democrats Condemn Ongoing GOP Fraudit Sham
"This 'fraudit' sham has made Arizona into a national laughingstock once again and in the interest of democracy and election integrity it should be ended immediately. Republicans can't accept they lost the election and are riling up their base to almost feverish levels that could have dangerous consequences. Maricopa County performed multiple audits of its election as required under state law. More than 2 million lawful ballots were cast in Maricopa County and there has been zero evidence of fraud or misconduct. No matter how you voted, this election was administered with integrity, accuracy and transparency. Despite this, Republicans have already said they plan to use the audit to pass more voting rights restrictions on Arizona voters. Meanwhile, Legislative Democrats introduced numerous bills this session to expand voting access and all of those bills were blocked by Republicans. This audit is no more than a temper tantrum from those still upset that they lost the election and it is deeply damaging to the integrity of our elections and our democracy."
