A photo posted on Twitter by the Republican Party of Arizona showed the electors sitting in prayer before casting their votes for Donald Trump on Dec. 14, 2020. Despite Joe Biden winning Arizona, the Republicans filed documents with Congress falsely claiming to be Arizona’s true electors.|| Twitter
Opinion: Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis isn’t messing around. Disenfranchising voters and trying to stage a coup doesn’t seem to sit well with her.
Not long ago it was reported that eight Republican fake electors in Georgia had accepted immunity deals from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
Supposedly, they’re cooperating with the criminal investigation being carried out by Willis’s office over Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in that state.
The scheme in Georgia — like the scheme in Arizona — involved creating a slate of phony electors to block the certification of the vote and hand over the election to Trump.
Willis isn’t messing around. Disenfranchising voters and trying to stage a coup doesn’t seem to sit well with her.
Georgia offers a playbook for Arizona prosecutors
There’s talk of possible racketeering and conspiracy charges.
Real consequences for fake electors.
Should that happen in Georgia it could, hopefully, provide a blueprint for authorities to follow in Arizona.
Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes said she would be reaching out to federal officials concerning our state’s fake electors.
