Outgoing Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich's Office emailed a 3 1/2 page letter to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office asking for details on the well-publicized Election Day snafus and how the County complied with state election laws.
Citing "hundreds of complaints" and claiming they "go beyond pure speculation", Asst AG Jennifer Wright asks for a detailed response before Maricopa County canvasses the results on or before November 28.
Most of the items have already been discussed by the County since Election Day, and have been the subject of discussions between MCAO's Tom Liddy and attorneys for the Republican parties and candidates. And, it is widely expected that Republicans will be filing their own legal actions before and/or after the canvass.
A few weeks ago, Brnovich called the allegations against the conduct of the 2020 elections "horseshit". He has not expressed a view of the seriousness of the complaints about this election, but this letter indicates that he wants to be involved.
