Opinion: Arizona Senate Republicans proclaim that nothing – not even state law – will stand in their way of investigating the 2020 elections. (Editor’s note: Opinion pieces are published for discussion purposes only.)
Republican senators, having been thwarted in their efforts to arrest the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, have dreamed up a new plan for how to get their hands on the county’s ballots from the November election.
Simply pass a law declaring that laws don’t apply to them.
Senate Bill 1408 is breathtaking in its arrogance:
“The Legislature’s plenary authority to conduct an investigation on any matter may not be infringed on by any other law,” it says.
