The Arizona Supreme Court has DISMISSED the latest attempt to "decertify" Arizona's 2020 Presidential election and to re-run it. The 4th attempt by "We the People" individuals to take their case directly to the state's highest court was rejected the week after it was filed.
The Order is authored by Duty Justice Ann Timmer, but she notes that the entire court "observes that Petitioners have cited no authority for the proposition that they or anyone else may overturn the Arizona statutes that govern both the conduct of elections and the challenges to the results of such elections. Likewise, they cannot dictate the terms of a proposed effort to 'rerun the 2020 presidential election,' which was certified almost two years ago."
The Court also - again - points out that election contests have to take place immediately after the results are known.
Daniel Wood and two others filed this latest effort against Governor Doug Ducey, Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Brutinel, saying that they illegally certified the results of the 2020 election, which found that Joe Biden received more votes than Donald Trump. They also asked the Court to allow them to hire a Tennessee attorney living in Florida to represent them, because they could not find any Arizona attorneys willing to risk their ability to practice law in Arizona.
One of the previous Woodie efforts was to replace selected elected officials with the then-anonymous Wood and other supporters.
