Arizona State Representative Mark Finchem (R) introduced a resolution to “set aside and decertify three 2020 county elections” in Arizona, according to a Monday press release.

The concurrent resolution, HCR 2033, calls for the elections of Maricopa, Pima and Yuma Counties to be set aside “based on clear and convincing evidence that the elections in those counties were irredeemably compromised”.

HCR 2033 has 13 co-sponsors: Arizona State Reps. Brenda Barton, Leo Biasiucci, Judy M. Burges, Neal Carter, Joseph Chaplik, Lupe Diaz, John M. Fillmore, Teresa Martinez, Quang H. Nguyen, Jacqueline Parker, Arizona State Senators Sonny Borrelli, Wendy Rogers, and Kelly Townsend.

“In the case of Maricopa, Pima and Yuma Counties, the fact that there is evidence showing illegal acts occurred, whether by intent or omission does not matter, the margin of error exceeds the margin of victory,” Rep. Mark Finchem said in a statement.

“If we are a nation governed by the ‘rule of law,’ as we so often espouse, then violations of the law must have consequences. In that regard, the 2020 General Election is irredeemably compromised, and it is impossible to name a clear winner of the contest,” the Arizona lawmaker said.

The 9-page bill states in part: “Whereas, a declaration of the results of statewide electoral contests in the 2020 general election is in dispute with probable cause to believe that multiple discrepancies exist, both criminal and noncriminal in nature, and that so many questionable ballots were commingled with legitimate ballots across the State of Arizona that significant voter disenfranchisement has occurred, making the election irredeemably compromised”.

HCR 2033 states: “Whereas, the Constitution of the United States provides for enumerated powers of the federal government; moreover, the Tenth Amendment specifies such enumerated powers as negative rights of the federal government, while protecting vast unenumerated powers for the state governments, stating, ‘The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people'”.

“Whereas, Article I, Section 4, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution empowers state legislatures, including the Legislature of the State of Arizona, to prescribe the ‘Times, Places, and Manner’ of conducting elections”, the bill reads.

“Whereas, the definition of ‘manner’ is at the sole discretion of the Legislature; and Whereas, Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution empowers state Legislatures, including the Legislature of the State of Arizona, to direct the manner of appointing electors for President and Vice President of the United States; and Whereas, Article IV, Section 4 of the United States Constitution, known as the ‘Guarantee Clause,’ guarantees each state a republican form of government, the foundation of which is self-governance through free and fair elections accurately reflecting the will of the people,” HCR 2033 states.

“Whereas, title 3, section 2 of the United States Code further empowers state legislatures to appoint electors if the election failed to produce a clear winner of an election due to tampering,” the Bill reads.

On page 5 of the Bill, it details irregularities which were reportedly found during the 2021 Arizona Senate forensic audit: “… evidence was received by the Panel that votes for candidate Trump were intermittently, and in some cases immediately, assigned to candidate Biden, and votes for candidate Trump were not tabulated”.

“… key cybersecurity failures of the system necessary for electronic tabulation of votes, including the failure to perform basic operating system patch management and the failure to update antivirus definitions, despite the claim that the system was not configured to access the internet nor capable of accessing the internet, which represents a significant security risk as reported by the Senate’s qualified cyber forensics analysis provider.”

Page 6 of the Bill states: “Maricopa County Supervisors admitted on the Congressional Record that general election results were purged from the Election Management System (EMS) as evidenced by a February 1, 2021 SQL Log entry that the RTRAdmin Account purged the general election results from the database, with no corresponding Windows Access Log entry, as reported by the Senate’s qualified cyber forensics analysis provider”.

“… Maricopa County officials violated Arizona statutes and do not have the required chain of custody for at least 740,000 ballots”.

Page 7 of the Bill reads: “Maricopa County reported that 923,000 early voter ballots were accepted at vote centers or drop box locations and that the county lacks chain of custody documents for at least 740,000 of those early voter ballots.”

“23,344 voters voted via mail-in ballot even though they show in the Melissa Commercial Database as having moved and no one with the same last name living at the address of record for the voter; 2,382 voters voted in person even though they show in the Melissa Commercial Database as having moved out of Maricopa County; 2,081 voters moved out of state during the 29 days before the election and were given a full ballot instead of a presidential-only ballot; and 255,326 early votes show in the VM55 that do not have a corresponding EV33 entry, in total showing that the margin of error far exceeds the margin of victory by candidate Biden”.

“The State of Arizona’s general election results were certified on November 30, 2020 when the Arizona Secretary of State, the Governor of the State and the Attorney General of the State prematurely certified results of the November 3, 2020 election even while a hearing was underway revealing election discrepancies and fraud …  knowing that such action would deprive one or both candidates due process in the ongoing litigation regarding presidential electors”.

Mr. Finchem also tweeted on Monday, “Arizona is the second state that has called for setting aside of the county elections that are irredeemably compromised.”

“I am just trying to be a champion for the voters who were fighting for justice and had their voices denied,” he said.

“#Decertify and #SetAside the fraudulent elections of 2020,” the Arizona lawmaker urged.
