Arizona State Sen. Kelly Townsend last week issued a new subpoena to the Mericopa County Board of Supervisors, instructing them to testify before a Senate government committee on Monday, March 26, at 4 p.m.
Supervisors were also instructed to create the incomplete items that were recently requested by the Arizona Attorney General’s Electoral Integrity Unit on March 9, 2022.
Gateway Pundit reports that Maricopa County has received a renewal request for information that was withheld from previous requests.
Maricopa County 2020 Election Investigation Receives New Requests for Records or Information – What Are They Hiding Now?
Last week, President Trump issued a statement saying, “Now is the time to finally issue a warrant for the Arizona Attorney General and take his investigation to the next level.”
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brunovich has done nothing to hold these criminals accountable.
Items and testimony from Townsend’s Subpona Brnovich requested “on March 9, 2022,” to answer questions about the delay in meeting the attorney general’s requests.
“Upon receipt, the Senate Government Committee will immediately provide information to the Attorney General’s Office under sealed and confidential transmission,” said Subpona.
The committee will also ask questions related to the analysis of Dr. Shiva Ayaduria’s signature verification which has found signature problems in more than 200,000 ballots that need to be ‘cured’ but only 25,000 ‘cured’ ballots were reported in the 2020 election results.
Maricopa County Chairman Bill Gates responded to the request by saying that the outside council would represent the county at tomorrow’s meeting. He further added that the subpoena was “not approved or approved” by Senate President Karen Fann.
Arizona law allows the chairman of any legislative committee to issue a legal and enforceable subpoena. Senator Townsend is chairman of the Senate Government Committee.
As an educational opportunity, @ Billgates Commented that I did not get permission from the Senate President, but we can all learn the law and see that ARS 41-1151 allows any chairman to issue subpoena with permission. This must be complied with for ARS 41-1153. pic.twitter.com/gjnpktAHdZ

The county’s persistent refusal to provide requested items and answer questions about the 2020 election is disgusting.
Senator Townsend told The Gateway Pandit,
Townsend: I’m not surprised by the response but I’m glad they’re at least going to send their attorney. We have a lot of questions and I hope they will be asked on Monday. I’m not sure why they’re referring me to Senate President Karen Fann but it’s a learning experience for everyone involved. The Senate has authority that has not been exercised for years when this need has arisen. I’m sure it’s uncomfortable for them, however, we have a job and the tools to do it. I intend to use them.
Gateway Pundit will provide updates about this meeting.
Post Maricopa County Supervisors first refused to attend the meeting after the Arizona State Senate issued a new 2020 election subpoena at The Gateway Pondy.
