Arizona Citizens Supporting Honest Representative Government At All Levels
Senate Requests Contempt Order Against Maricopa County Supervisors
Editor's note: At what point did our government officials, elected by YOU, decide whether to serve the people or themselves alone? When the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors decided to blow off an Arizona Senate subpeona, it was an outrageous act of defiance by the BoS. Every member of the BoS should be recalled immediately and a new election held. They have forgotten who put them there. But we haven't forgotten. The Senate should not take this lightly... and it appears they aren't. Let the BoS spend Christmas behind bars in Penzone's jail! Well, that won't happen, but it's a nice idea.
A judge will hear arguments Wednesday afternoon on why a State Senate committee wants a court order to hold Maricopa County officials in contempt, given that the legislature has had the same power for nearly 100 years.
Judge Randall Warner of the Maricopa County Superior Court was asked Monday by Senate President Karen Fann and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Eddie Farnsworth to order Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors to “comply in full” with two legislative subpoenas related to the 2020 General Election.
County officials announced last week they would not meet a Friday deadline set forth in the subpoenas. The Fann-Farnsworth special action complaint was filed one business day after Maricopa County officials asked another superior court judge to quash the legislative subpoenas for being unlawful.
The complaint seeks expediated handling of the case as Congress meets Jan. 6 to certify the U.S. Electoral College votes.
However, Warner spent most of Monday’s show cause hearing addressing his concern that the judiciary may not have jurisdiction to get involved in the subpoena dispute. One of the issues is that state law provides for the legislature to hold people in contempt to failing to comply with subpoenas.
And that includes the authority to direct the Sergeant-at-Arms take someone in custody for non-compliance.
Warner also granted permission to three Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to file an amicus or friend of the court brief. He gave the same option to several of Arizona’s top Republicans, including the 11 people who were chosen to (sic) as Presidential electors.
News of the competing legal actions has created quite a stir within the legislature, as well as frustration.
Nancy Barto (LD15) called the decision by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to challenge the subpoenas “astonishing” and “truly confusing.”
“If you are bewildered by this action, you aren’t alone,” she said, adding that Maricopa County officials cited “privacy” concerns in their legal action but made “no attempt to implement one of many possible privacy accommodations while still complying the subpoena.”
They are all play fighting like a couple of kittens. If you really want to know how they do it you will read my book.
I hope Katie Hobbs is on the list
RECALL them all!!!!
Let's get the machines, first.
Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Clint Hickman had the gall to post on the Republicanbrief, that "the 2020 General Election was transparent and the results were free from fraud".
If this were 1804, I'd challenge Hickman to a duel with pistols akin to Hamilton and Burr! That is how ludicrous his statement was. When people are not compliant with the law, and delay, defer or challenge a lawful request, then they are certainly covering up something foul. The whole BOS should never serve in a public capacity again...ever!
Maybe we should call and encourage the Sheriff 's office to get their arrest done quickly and loudly if it comes to pass that they are in contempt and the arrest order is given.

This article makes it pretty clear that the senate needs to send the Sergeant at Arms out to arrest the BoS. Just get it done.
Now that is a common sense solution.
It is not just in Arizona where these Dominion machines, etc., were rigged to steal the election from President Trump. Arresting anyone who perpetuated this fraud is great--wouldn't it be great to see Biden and son Hunter in handcuffs doing the perp walk!--but the fraud will continue in future elections if we do not get rid of those machines and the software.
And we need a return to the not-so-long-ago era when we voted on Election Day, and knew the winner by night's end.
There appears to be a powerful tool that is at Mr. Trump's disposal.
Anyone heard of the Open Letter To President Trump from Path Keepers?
The Prez also has Election Nullification at his disposal.
The Deep State seems to be still at work, blowing up manufacturing plants for the drug that makes covid nothing. Of course, who knows if that's the case, but... What do you believe is truth any more? Everything seems to aid the global establishment. Coincidence? I don't have much faith in "coincidence" where power politics is involved.
