Meanwhile, Election Deniers In Arizona Sabotage Themselves

The terrible sand people of the terrible sand kingdom of Arizonastan.

The election-denying terrible sand people of the terrible sand kingdom of Arizonastan in Cochise County have declined to certify their election results:

The lawsuit, filed in Arizona Superior Court, aims to compel the Cochise County Board of Supervisors to certify the county’s results from the Nov. 8 election. The deadline for county certification is Monday.

Officials in Cochise, one of 15 counties in the state, voted earlier in the day against certifying its election results. The county previously postponed certification at a Nov. 18 meeting.

Under state law, Arizona is supposed to certify its results by Dec. 8 — with or without certification from all of the counties.

If they don’t comply by December 5, the county’s votes will be excluded. Should the Republican’s Cochise County choose to have their votes thrown out, that probably would flip two races from a Republican to a Democrat:

If Hobbs and her office chose not to follow the law and, essentially, look the other way, it would be a bonanza for Democrats, pennies from heaven.

Cochise County is heavily Republican.According to records on the county’s website, Republican Juan Ciscomani received nearly 14,000 more votes than Democrat Kirsten Engle in their race for Arizona’s 6th congressional district.Likewise, Republican Tom Horne received 9,000 more votes than Democrat Kathy Hoffman in the contest for Superintendent of Public Instruction.

She could ‘steal’ the election for 2 Democrats

If the supervisors were to refuse to certify their election results and, as the law provides, “disenfranchise all of the voters in Cochise County”, Democrats would have enough votes from the other 14 counties to win both of those races.

All Katie Hobbs’ office has to do to make that happen is turn a blind eye. Don’t file a lawsuit. Don’t do anything.

I love it when a plan comes together.

  1. It would likely move the AG race out of ‘automatic recount’ territory to solid win for Kris Mayes as well.

    Could conceivably flip the State House or Senate (or both) Blue as well. The R’s are currently holding each by one seat. Katie could do great things for thi state with a Dem legislature…

    And just like that, a third political party was created in the US. The Do-Over Party. They may even tax the rich to pay for all of the elections, re-elections and recounts.

    If this continues like this through the final count, there will not be enough mockery to drown out their cries of “stop the steal”.

    I don’t get why they won’t certify an election that went their way.
    Also, I’m torn. The now-me feels the Rest of Us (not Republicans) ought not take elections in this fashion. The former Dem county chair in me is dancing about just letting the Republicans screw themselves with their own petard.

    Sec. of State/Governor-elect Hobbs has sued Cochise County. Damn, why are Democrats so decent and responsible?

      If she does her due diligence there will be less grounds for legal protests from Cochise County. If she just lets them go they will definitely claim the deserve the win because she didn’t protect them from themselves.
