The Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) Executive Board unanimously approved a resolution last week to reject Arizona’s 2020 presidential election results, reporting that “substantial election fraud” unfairly skewed the results in favor of Joe Biden, according to the Arizona Sun Times.
Brian Ference, a board member, drafted the resolution after “significant inconsistencies and discrepancies” were discovered during the state’s audit of the election results.
Ference also cited filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s “2,000 Mules,” a documentary examining video surveillance footage of illegal ballot trafficking in metropolitan areas such as Maricopa County.
“We reject the certified results of the 2020 Presidential election,” wrote Ference, “and we hold that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States.”
According to The Gateway Pundit, the MCRC Executive Governance Committee will vote on the resolution on July 7. The resolution will also be brought to precinct committee members for a vote in their legislative districts.
Arizona is now the second state with political leaders voting to adopt decertification measures. On Tuesday, the Texas GOP adopted a similar resolution to reject their state’s presidential election results.
Like Arizona’s MCRC, the Texas GOP claimed “substantial election fraud in key metropolitan areas” occurred in five major swing states, which they said resulted in a false win for Biden.
Polling has also indicated that most Americans believe fraud affected the results of the election. A Rasmussen Reports poll from last fall found that 56 percent of likely voters said cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
In the aftermath of Arizona’s and Texas’s stances on voter fraud, the national spotlight will likely turn towards other state political leaders to see whether they will follow suit and deny the legitimacy of the Biden administration.
