Arizona Republican attorney general: Election fraud claims are ‘horses—‘
https://thehill.com/homenews/3712091-ar ... re-horses/
Republican Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich called claims of election fraud in the 2020 election “horses—” during a new interview and said he conducted a thorough investigation in the aftermath of the election that disproved such claims in his state.
“Most of it’s horses— and I’ve been trying to scrape it off my shoes for the last year,” Brnovich told Scott Pelley on CBS’s “60 Minutes” in an interview aired Sunday. “We, as prosecutors, deal in facts and evidence. And I’m not like the clowns that throw stuff against the wall and see what sticks.”

The Republican attorney general said former President Trump called him after the 2020 election and told him that if he claimed the election was fraudulent, he’d be a “superstar.”

“I said, ‘Mr. President, I didn’t become attorney general to be a star,'” Brnovich told Pelley. “I brought my star with me, and I don’t need anybody, whether it’s a former president or any other person, validating what I’m doing and why I’m doing it.”

Brnovich said on “60 Minutes” he extensively investigated the claims of fraud over the past two years and has found nothing to support Trump’s version of events.

There was no one in this country that wanted to find evidence of fraud more than I did, but I thought it was important to systematically go through and say, ‘no this is the facts, this is the evidence,'” Brnovich said. “Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but when you’re an actual prosecutor, when you’re the actual government, there’s a higher obligation. You can’t afford to be sloppy.”

The way things are going, he'll probably have a goon show up to his house with a hammer or AR-15 to straighten him out.

Now the GOP is claiming he was his gay lover and they had a fight. Who isn’t surprised?

The sad thing is that she's likely to win. Embarrassed for my former home state.

Same. Not only that, it's my birth state.

I thought Kris Mayes would have been a better gubernatorial candidate.
She would have been happy to go toe-to-toe Kamikaze Kari.

Cutting off your nose to spite your face? Shooting yourself in the foot? Why are these dumb AZ counties trying to throw out their own votes? The baseless election fraud stuff has just gotten so preposterous.
