The Republicans in Arizona are not going away quietly.
According to Breitbart News, “Arizona Republican state legislators pushed back against Maricopa County officials on Tuesday, one day after the county’s Board of Supervisors defiantly refused to cooperate with subpoenas for additional information about the November 3, 2020, election conducted in the state’s most populous county.”
The county officials are thwarting and stonewalling the audit efforts at every turn.
“Build the case, set the trap, and boom the Maricopa lies will come back to haunt them,” said State Senate President Karen Fann.

Just a day before, Fann released a statement:
Based on today’s responses from Maricopa County and Dominion, it appears we will soon secure copies of ballot envelopes and critical voter registration information. That is progress, and the final audit report will be better because of it.
Maricopa County’s slow-walk of the Senate public records request into a possible breach of the voter registration server is frustrating, and we will try to be patient and give the County more time to comply, as they requested.
We are weighing our options for securing access to the routers and passwords and will make a thoughtful decision in due course after conferring with my staff, counsel, and colleagues. It is unfortunate the noncompliance by the County and Dominion continues to delay the results and breeds distrust.
We remain committed to ensuring election integrity as voter confidence is at the heart of what we set out to achieve in this endeavor. Our constituents deserve no less.
