Arizona representative issues call to withhold Electoral College following “significant evidence of fraud”
By Ramon Tomey // Dec 03, 2020

An Arizona state representative called to withhold the state's Electoral College votes for Joe Biden. Republican State representative Mark Finchem, who stands for Ariz.'s 11th legislative district, exhorted the withholding as he believes "there is enough significant evidence of fraud to invalidate [them.]" Finchem made the calls during a Nov. 30 public hearing, in which members of President Donald Trump's legal team appeared before Ariz. state legislators.


Finchem chaired the Nov. 30 hearing, with a number of lawmakers from both houses of the state Congress on the panel. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis were among the Trump legal team members who appeared before the panel: They brought out many credible witnesses who testified about Democrat voter fraud via the Dominion voting machines and other irregularities. Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai also presented "very powerful" data to Ariz. lawmakers disproving the idea that Biden won the state.

Giuliani and Ellis asked the Arizona legislature to either withhold their electoral votes or assign them to Trump after making their case: Finchem subsequently called for the first option.

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs certified the state's election results in the middle of the hearing, which led Finchem to call for withholding the poll results after the Trump legal team presented its evidence. He said: "We are clawing our Electoral College votes back, [and] we will not release them. That's what I'm calling our colleagues in both the House and the Senate to do: Exercise our plenary authority under the U.S. Constitution." (Related: Arizona unlikely to see accurate vote count since secretary of state thinks Trump supporters are "neo-Nazis".)

Two Republican figures in the state stood by Finchem when he made the announcement: Republican Senate Majority Whip Sonny Borelli and U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ). Borelli's presence signified that Finchem's plan to withhold the Electoral College votes may already be receiving support from the Ariz. GOP leadership.

Arizona is among many other states that saw election fraud during the recent polls

Cybersecurity expert Colonel Phil Waldron was among the witnesses the Trump legal team brought during the Nov. 30 hearing. He warned that Dominion voting machines are vulnerable to both onsite and offsite manipulation, and spoke about potential voter fraud in the state's most populous counties of Pima and Maricopa. According to Waldron, Dominion voting machines could be connected to the internet – posing a severe security risk. Representatives for the voting machine manufacturer claimed that this was impossible.

The cybersecurity expert also said a Maricopa County official claimed the area failed to validate signatures on some ballots, while a witness from Pima Count reported that votes had been "embedded" in some precincts to help Biden win.

Aside from the instances mentioned by Waldron, Maricopa County voters claimed that some election officials gave them Sharpie markers. The provided markers subsequently invalidated their ballots after they bled through. Many had demonstrated all across social media how Sharpie ink bleeds right through a paper ballot to make it unreadable.

However, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors claimed that Sharpies "do not invalidate ballots" and are even "recommended by the manufacturer of the new vote tabulation equipment because they provide the fastest-drying ink." The board further added: "The offset columns on ballots ensure that any bleed-through will not impact your vote. For this reason, Sharpies were provided to in-person voters on Election Day." People who voted by mail could use Sharpies, blue pens or black pens, it said.

Nevertheless, Ariz. Deputy Solicitor General Michael Catlett wrote a letter to Maricopa County Elections Department Director Scott Jarrett indicating the attorney general's intent to examine the complaints. Catlett's Nov. 4 letter read: "We have received hundreds of voter complaints regarding the use of Sharpie brand markers ... to fill out ballots on Election Day at voting centers. Voters are concerned that the use of Sharpies may have caused ballots to be rejected, spoiled or canceled."
