Not Over Yet; Arizona Asst. AG Hammers Election Officials, Notes Violations of ‘Lawful Compliance with Arizona Election Law

When Karo Lake says she’ll be the next lawfully elected governor of the Grand Canyon State, she means it.
Perhaps an elected official in Arizona is finally having guilt pangs after sitting on their hands for almost two weeks.
Under the auspices of Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright, who is in charge of the Elections Integrity Unit, is calling into question election officials in Maricopa County, as seen in the twitter message below.

In quite a bombshell, Asst AG Wright finished her letter to Thomas Liddy of the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office (emphasis mine);

‘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.’

For more in-depth reporting, as noted by Randy DeSoto of Western Journal (emphasis mine);

Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright — with the Elections Integrity Unit — wrote a letter to the Maricopa County officials Saturday demanding an accounting for the widespread ballot tabulation and ballot printer problems seen during the general election on Nov. 8.

Among the most troubling issues raised in the letter directed to Thomas Liddy with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office was the apparent co-mingling of ballots in black duffle bags in at least one polling location, which were successfully run through the on-site tabulators with those put in “Door 3” to be sent to the Election Department’s downtown Phoenix tabulation center because they could not be read.

“The Elections Integrity Unit (“Unit”) of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office (“AGO”) has received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County,” Wright opened her letter.

“These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law,” she continued. Wright recounted that based on information provided by the county at least 60 polling locations’ ballot on-demand printers were configured improperly, leading to the inability of the tabulators to read the ballots.

Ballots are printed on demand because voters are able to check in at any location in Maricopa County, which includes multiple congressional, state and local districts.

“Based on sworn complaints submitted by election workers employed by Maricopa County, the BOD printers were tested on Monday, November 7 without any apparent problems,” Wright wrote.

Despite these tests, the printers began malfunctioning within the first half-an-hour on Election Day.
