Head Of Maricopa County Elections Says Fraud In Claims Are False, Gop Account To ‘mark Again Rhetoric’

The election chief in an Arizona county that went to a Democrat presidential contender for the first time in seven decades has assured voters there was no evidence of fraud and said the historic result would stand.

President-elect Joe Biden became the first Democrat to win Maricopa County since Harry Truman in 1948, a result that helped him flip the Grand Canyon State and take its 11 electoral college votes.

However, three Republican congressmen had called for the recount of all 2 million ballots in the county, claiming the County Board of Supervisors and Recorder’s Office had broken state law by not conducting a precinct-level hand count of the ballots to check accuracy.

Last week, the state’s Republican attorney general, Mark Brnovich, said the county had followed the law. But Reps. Andy Biggs, David Schweikert and Paul Gosar contacted the board asking for an audit of all ballots because of “issues raised about the integrity of some of our election systems within the state.” They did not specify how they believed the votes had been compromised, 12 News reported.

Their comments follow President Donald Trump‘s refusal to concede to Biden.
