Maricopa County Still Refuses To Comply, But Here’s How Attorney General Brnovich Plans On Solving That


They’re still not budging?

I have heard every excuse in the book from Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors over their failure to hand over sensitive materials to Arizona’s State Senate for auditing purposes.

At least one of the arguments is actually a good one, and I’m sure you’ve heard it too.

Maricopa election officials argue that handing over these materials and remaining machines would force them to get new machines and spend a great deal of money complying with the audit.

We are about to find out once and for all if that is in fact the reason, or if it was a complete lie.

According to the latest reports, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich will withhold state funds and even penalize Maricopa County even further if they continue to withhold the materials requested.

In addition to losing state funding, Maricopa County could also be fined an additional $61 million. If they don’t budge with these very real financial penalties staring them in the face, we will know that it was never about money.

It was about hiding the truth.

Take a look:

Western Journal reports:

The MCBOS has 30 days to “resolve the violation.” If it fails to do so, “the AGO, in accordance with state law, will notify the Arizona Treasurer to withhold state revenue from Maricopa County until MCBOS complies.”

According to Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem, a Republican, the MCBOS stands to lose up to $61 million in state funding if it fails to comply.

Just The News had more:

He warned any further delay by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (MCBOS) would result in a substantial financial penalty.

Maricopa County gets about $700 million in state funds a year.

The county board said it is aware of the attorney general’s decision and “board members will meet with their legal counsel and determine an appropriate path forward.”
