Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is standing his ground on a threat to keep money from Maricopa County over the controversial election audit.

The threat stems from county supervisors refusing to comply with a subpoena from the Republican-controlled state Senate to hand over equipment to the auditors of the partisan election review. Last month, Brnovich gave the county a Sept. 27 deadline to comply with the order or risk losing money it receives in the form of state shared revenue.

 Maricopa County may lose public safety funds if it won’t comply with audit

Maricopa County may lose public safety funds if it won’t comply with audit

Mark Brnovich told Maricopa County to comply with election subpoena or lose funds.

That deadline is now less than two weeks away and the county has yet to say how it will respond to the Senate’s demands. But if the state’s largest county doesn’t comply, it risks losing nearly $700 million in state funding.

A big chunk of that lost revenue will hurt funding for public safety, law enforcement and the court system.
