AZ Senate Resolution Threatens Arrest Of Maricopa County Board

(AP) — Repub­li­cans who con­trol the Ari­zona Sen­ate are mov­ing ahead with their threat to pass a con­tempt res­o­lu­tion find­ing Mari­co­pa Coun­ty has failed to com­ply with a sub­poe­na demand­ing access to elec­tions equip­ment and bal­lots cast in the Novem­ber election.

The Sen­ate Rules com­mit­tee plans to meet Wednes­day after­noon to start the pro­ce­dure for intro­duc­ing the res­o­lu­tion. Tim­ing on a full Sen­ate vote is unclear.

If the res­o­lu­tion pass­es, board mem­bers could be jailed for fail­ing to comply.

The Repub­li­can-dom­i­nat­ed board on Tues­day again refused to com­ply with sub­poe­nas GOP law­mak­ers issued as they try to show that fraud or oth­er elec­tion mis­deeds led to Demo­c­ra­t­ic Pres­i­dent Joe Biden’s win in the state. Courts reject­ed eight law­suits filed by back­ers of for­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump after his loss, find­ing there was no evi­dence that he did not lose.

The Sen­ate has demand­ed access to vot­ing machines and all 2.1 mil­lion bal­lots cast in the elec­tion. The board has said it can’t com­ply because bal­lots are sealed by law and the vot­ing machines the Sen­ate wants to exam­ine need to remain secure.
