Maricopa Audit About Securing Fair & Transparent Elections, Not “2020 Do-over”
Washington, D.C.: “Arizona Senator Karen Fann is giving America leadership lessons on what elected officeholders should act like,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “From the outset of this Maricopa County election audit to the wild announcement last week about tens of thousands of discrepant votes, Senator Fann has kept this process focused on one thing — We the People.”
Martin continued, “Despite threats from the Department of Justice, Big Media blackout, Big Tech censorship, and stonewalling from county officials, Senator Fann has pushed forward this investigation to ensure that the voice of Arizona voters is protected.
“Time and again she has dismissed political accusations, reminding her colleagues that this audit isn’t about recalling electors, undoing elections, or anything of the kind. This is a necessary investigation to unravel the bureaucratic secrecy that is slowly but surely destroying the consent of the governed.”
