Another Senate subpoena for 2020 election records? Seriously, will it ever end?

Sen. Kelly Townsend

Opinion: The Arizona Senate is once again hot on the trail of elections records, determined as ever to find that oh-so-elusive proof that Donald Trump was robbed. Will it ever end?

State Sen. Kelly Townsend issued a subpoena to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for files on more than 2,000 voters, based on the work of a guy whose earlier election audit work has been downright laughable.

Break out another Senate subpoena, the bloodhounds over the Arizona Senate continue their hunt for all that as-yet undiscovered evidence that Arizona’s 2020 election was stolen.

Sen. Kelly Townsend, R-Apache Junction, on Monday issued a subpoena to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, based upon a recent analysis of early ballots by a so-called expert whose work on the election audit ranged from questionable to downright rolling-around-on-the-floor laughable.

Undeterred, Townsend is now demanding that county officials turn over all manner of documents – including the files on more than 2,000 Maricopa County voters – to her committee and to the Attorney General’s Office, which requested the files earlier this month.

“This subpoena serves as an effort to place into permanent record the testimony from the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors the legal reasoning for the delay in their production of the requested documents by the Attorney General’s office, and to seek answers as to what further plans the Board of Supervisors has regarding cooperation with the investigation,” she said on Tuesday.

Why are they listening to Shiva Ayyadurai?

Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates seemed astounded that Townsend and Attorney General Mark Brnovich would give any credibility to the findings of Shiva Ayyadurai, whose work on the election audit was thoroughly debunked.
