Kris Mayes plans to investigate the effort by a slate of GOP electors to falsely declare Donald Trump the winner of the 2020 presidential election in Arizona once she takes office as attorney general early next month.
“I think that the people of Arizona can anticipate that we will investigate that situation,” Mayes told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show on Tuesday. “I don’t think that’s the kind of thing that you can allow to go unreviewed and uninvestigated.”
Arizona was one of seven states where some Republicans allegedly met and submitted false Electoral College certificates declaring Trump as winner. President Joe Biden won all seven states.
