Stephen Richer, the Republican attorney who authored an “independent audit” of Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes commissioned by the Arizona Republican Party that leveled several unsubstantiated allegations against him, is now seeking the office himself.

Richer announced on Tuesday that he’s running for county recorder. If he wins the Republican nomination, he’ll go head to head against the Democratic incumbent he skewered in an audit of the 2018 general election that the Arizona Republican Party commissioned.

The preliminary audit aired several unsubstantiated conspiracy theories and baseless allegations of election fraud and partisanship on Fontes’s part, some of which didn’t even cite a source or origin for the claims.
