'Redo The Arizona Election' Says Trump, Pointing To Voting Issues In Maricopa County
by Frank Fang
"This Election was a disgrace," Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social on Nov. 22. "They should at minimum redo the Arizona Election," Trump added, pointing to the memo written by attorney Mark Sonnenklar, who was one of 11 roving attorneys working with the Republican National Committee's (RNC) Election Integrity program in Maricopa County.
According to the memo, 72 of the 115 voting centers the attorneys visited, or 62.61 percent, witnessed "material problems."
The long lines negatively affected GOP candidates on election day, according to the memo.
"Because Republican voters significantly outnumbered Democrat voters in the county on election day, such voter suppression would necessarily impact the vote tallies for Republican candidates much more than the vote tallies for Democrat candidates," Sonnenklar added.
Additionally, Sonnenklar disputed claims by county officials that printer/tabulator problems were resolved as of 3 p.m. local time and their impact was "insignificant."
“Collectively, I and the other 10 roving attorneys also reported that voters had to wait in significant lines at 59 of the 115 vote centers we visited (51.3 percent). In many cases, voters had to wait 1-2 hours before they received a ballot for voting,” Sonnenklar wrote.
He added, “It is certainly safe to assume that many voters refused to wait in such lines, left the vote center, and did not return to vote later.”
In response to Trump’s comments, Arizona Republican governor’s candidate Kari Lake took to Twitter to thank the former president.
“It was nothing short of mass disenfranchisement for the entire Arizona First slate and the people of Arizona,” Lake added.
