Before the Senate began it’s so-called audit, Maricopa County Supervisor Steve Chucri criticized his colleagues on the Board of Supervisors for not supporting the Senate’s review of the 2020 election, speculating that two of them were worried about what such a review would show about their own narrow victories in November in a newly released recording. 

In the conversation with conservative activists, which they recorded in January and March and provided to right-wing media this week, Chucri also made an outlandish claim that dead people voted in the November election, and alleged problems with illegal ballot harvesting and a law that Gov. Doug Ducey signed last year that allowed election workers to analyze digital images of ballots in cases where it was unclear which candidate a voter chose.

Maricopa County was the driving force behind that law, and it was supported by Chucri and the other county supervisors.

The comments were made during a meeting in March with Shelby Busch and Steve Robinson of the conservative group We the People AZ Alliance, which, at the time, was attempting to force recall elections against all five members of the Board of Supervisors, including Chucri. The group did not collect enough signatures to force recall elections against any of the supervisors.
