After yet another Republican member called for fresh elections, Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, a conservative, said the state legislature doesn’t have the power to withdraw electors for the controversial 2020 elections.
What is the Authority of the State Senate?
Fann told One America News Network (which has been monitoring the Maricopa County investigation) that the legislative body has the capacity to furnish inspectors with the documents they require, even by the use of warrants. However, elector verification is a separate thing.
They don’t have the ability to do it as a Senate committee. On July 16, the Republican prominent politician stated this is what they have said and the representative wants to make it perfectly clear in the records.
The forensic audit is showing that the physical ballots DON’T match the “85% voter turnout” in Maricopa county. Shocking. NOT. https://t.co/YhfQwEDkzu

Fann made his remarks as former President Donald Trump released a statement, claiming that the investigation showed fraudulent activities that could have swung the election in his direction last year.
The senators held a hearing on July 15 in the middle of a months-long examination conducted by Cyber Ninjas, a Florida-based cybersecurity firm, and teams informed legislators they detected anomalies.
Lawmakers were told by Doug Logan, CEO of Cyber Ninjas, that accountants can not find any trace of Maricopa County mailing upwards of 74,000 mail-in votes; furthermore, 18,000 persons voted but were removed from voter registers immediately after the election.
He also mentioned that 11,326 persons were not on the voter lists on November 7, 2020, but were all on the rolls on December 4, 2020. Likewise, 3,981 people voted after enrolling past October 15, 2020.

Senate Republicans demanded that the 11 Arizona voters who voted for Biden be withdrawn
It is necessary to hold a new election. Sen. Wendy Rogers, a conservative, remarked on Twitter last week that Arizona’s delegates must not be rewarded illegally and that we have to get this right.
However, in a discussion with OANN, Fann stated that the House has only the power to demand data in this scenario because it makes laws and that they are allowed to have the data to choose how to design such laws.
After the meeting, Maricopa State lawmakers and liberals, including Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, stated the audit committee and Republican senators were inept and that their conclusions should not be treated seriously.

Maricopa County officials and Senate Republicans have been involved in a court battle over the district’s ballots and voting technology for months. Finally, a judge determined that the Senate did have the authority to request documents for the audit, which started in April.
In a statement released after the proceedings, Conservative Maricopa Town Council of Supervisors Chairman Jack Sellers said what they learned yesterday symbolizes an alternative universe that has drifted out of grasp since the November National Election.
Sellers also said senatorial governance should be embarrassed they transmitted the half-baked hypotheses of the deep rig crowd to the modern world.
