Sen. Sonny Borrelli’s bold 2024 election bluff is beyond belief (even for him)

Opinion: Senate Majority Leader Sonny Borrelli tried to bluff Arizona’s counties into hand counting all ballots in 2024. It’s a bad look for a guy who plays a key role in Senate leadership.

Some Republican legislators continue their quest to ban those demon machines from counting ballots in the 2024 election.

One of their leaders is now attempting an end run on Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs — declaring that the Republican-run Legislature has the power all on its own to effectively ban the use of electronic tabulation machines and instead require a hand count of all ballots.

It is, of course, a giant load of elephant dung.

But when has “truth” even been a consideration for the election conspiracy squad?

Borrelli has made election fraud claims before

Senate Majority Leader Sonny Borrelli, R-Lake Havasu City, is spearheading the latest attempt by some Republicans to rid Arizona of all that election fraud they can’t seem to find.

You remember Borrelli.

He’s the guy who went all cloak-and-dagger after dumpster divers unearthed a bag of supposedly shredded 2020 ballots outside the Maricopa County elections HQ, warning the woman who had them that she could be killed because she held the “domino” that would overturn the presidential election.

Turns out they weren’t ballots, she wasn’t killed and Trump still hasn’t produced any evidence the election was stolen — here or elsewhere.
