Arizona State Representative Mark Finchem (R), who is running for Arizona secretary of state, called for the “decertification of the Arizona election” and the “arrest of those involved in tampering with election systems” following Friday’s Arizona State Senate hearing over the Maricopa County forensic audit reports, regarding the 2020 general election.
Finchem, earlier this month, had called for the decertification of Arizona’s electors after Liz Harris, a Republican grassroots organizer, spoke to host Steve Bannon on “War Room” September 8th, disclosing voting discrepancies in Maricopa County, which was conducted through independent canvasing.
“After hearing the evidence in the Arizona Audit report, I call for decertification of the Arizona election, arrest of those involved in tampering with election systems, and an audit of Pima County as a next step,” Arizona State Representative Mark Finchem declared.

Earlier Friday morning, Mr. Finchem tweeted, “We need to Audit Pima County”, adding, “There are 35K votes in question from multiple sources and I want answers.”
The Arizona state representative urged Americans to “sign” his “petition” to move forward with the process, saying, “We need 500K signatures”.
Now that the audit of Maricopa is wrapping up, we need to Audit Pima County – the 2nd largest county in AZ. There are 35k votes in question from multiple sources & I want answers. Please sign my petition to get this done. We need 500k signatures.

Mr. Finchem also highlighted some of the findings revealed during Friday’s Senate hearing:
45th President Donald J. Trump issued a statement via email earlier this month, from his “Save America” PAC, announcing his “Complete and Total Endorsement” for Finchem for “the position of Secretary of State”, as previously reported by The Freedom Times.
Thank you, President Trump for your endorsement. You are leading the way on restoring election integrity. I am truly honored to be recognized for the hard work I put in and will continue to do to restore the integrity of our elections. https://t.co/PZa727r60E
