Senator Fernandez Sends Letter Requesting Removal of Indicted Fake Electors from all Committee Assignments

Arizona State Senate 

1700 W. Washington St. 

Phoenix, AZ 85007 

 

 

OFFICIAL PRESS STATEMENT 


PHOENIX – Senator Brian Fernandez (LD23) sent a letter to Senate President Warren Petersen requesting the immediate removal of Senators Anthony Kern and Jacob Hoffman from all committee assignments following their recent Grand Jury indictments. Fernandez released the following statement: 


“This moment demands our utmost attention because the world is watching us. Attorney General Kris Mayes announced yesterday that the State Grand Jury returned indictments in the ongoing investigation into the fake elector scheme in Arizona, including State Senators Jacob Hoffman and Anthony Kern. The charges include fraud, forgery, and conspiracy – class 2, 4, and 5 felonies. In the letter sent to President Petersen, I express that we must uphold the presumption of innocence afforded to every American; however, the potential repercussions of these accusations on the public's perception of the legislative legitimacy are too consequential to overlook. I look forward to the President’s response and will continue to update the people of Arizona on this ongoing matter.”
