The Washington Post recently reported that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ investigation of former President Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia may rely in part on prosecutors proving a similar pattern of behavior in other states.
The theory revolves around work done by a couple of firms hired to try to prove Trump had won, but whose findings were never released because they could not do so.
Willis is interested in the work the firms did in Georgia and other states.
What that means, potentially, is that the most vilified Republicans in Arizona may soon be heroes of a sort … in Georgia.
For example, the Georgia prosecutor might want to know all about the pressure exerted on former Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers by Trump’s minions.
A staunch Republican, Bowers refused to ignore his oath, abandon the law and the Constitution to void the decision of Arizona voters and declare Trump the winner in our state.
In resisting the pressure Bowers said, “I was trying to send a definitive message: This is hogwash. Taking away the fundamental right to vote, the idea that the Legislature could nullify your elections, that’s not conservative. That’s fascist. And I am not a fascist.”
Also standing fast were Republican Maricopa County Supervisors Clint Hickman, Jack Sellers and Bill Gates, and Republican Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, all of whom refused to be bullied into abandoning their oaths.
All of whom put state and country over party. (What a concept.)
