Senate Democrats’ Statement on Senate Judiciary’s Election Subpoenas to Maricopa County Board of Sup
PHOENIX–The Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Martin Quezada, Senator Lupe Contreras and Senator Andrea Dalessandro, released the following statement on Senate Farnsworth’s subpoenas to Maricopa County Board of Supervisors:
“We expect these subpoenas to turn up just as much as Republican’s 8 failed elections lawsuits: Absolutely nothing. We stand by and strongly support the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in not complying with the subpoenas to protect voter’s private information and instead seeking court clarification to ensure that voting equipment is not compromised.
There are those out there who want to cast doubt and chaos on our election and are encouraging the completely made up claims of fraud. Their plan is obvious: Use this to cast doubt in the public to pass laws that will make it more difficult for Arizonans to vote.
But here are the facts. More than 2 million eligible ballots were cast in Maricopa County and there is no evidence of fraud, misconduct or malfunction. No matter how you voted, this election was administered with integrity, transparency and in accordance with state laws.
Now we need to move on and focus on a real crisis: COVID-19. As of today there are over 400,000 COVID cases and 7,819 COVID deaths. We need to focus on stronger action to slow this virus down before more people get sick and more loved ones are missing from the dinner table this Christmas.”
