Arizona Secretary of State Candidate Mark Finchem Explains How Vote Fraud Deniers Threaten the ‘Consent of the Governed’

Arizona secretary of state candidate Mark Finchem recently appeared on Big League Politics Live where the constitutionally-minded state representative explained the problems with the lack of transparency in the voting process of his home state.

“If the citizens are denied the opportunity to scrutinize an election that they believe may be, shall we say, questionable, I think that that’s where we lose a certain power by the people in the democratic process of selecting our elected officials,” Finchem said.

“I mean, after all, we were built on the consent of the governed, that whole idea, and there’s a lot of people who have given up a lot of blood, a lot of treasure, a lot of lives to see to it that that single change…in the way people are government has endured for over 250 years. I don’t want to see an end to it,” he added.

Finchem believes that the American dream is still worth fighting for, and that is why he has refused to budge an inch in the crusade for electoral transparency. He is running for secretary of state on a platform of stopping voter fraud.

“As flawed as it might be, I think that we still are the freest form of government and we need to return back to that freedom, and the only way we can do that is to ensure that our elections are transparent, to ensure that our vote that is cast is not somehow nullified by illegal vote…and the only way we can do that is through scrutiny,” he said.

“It seems very odd to me that the Democrats don’t want to embrace the idea of scrutiny and embrace the idea of an audit because that would be their grand opportunity for them to say, on Joe Biden’s part, ‘Hey Donald, I beat you fair and square. Get over it.’ But that’s not what’s happening here. They’re doing everything they can to obfuscate, to put up roadblocks, to put up nail strips to slow the process down, to make the process go away,” Finchem added.

Big League Politics has reported on how Democrats have been desperate to stop the audit that is underway in Maricopa County:

The audit of ballots and computer systems in Maricopa County, Ariz. will continue as scheduled after the Arizona Democrat Party failed to put up the $1 million in bond needed to pause the process.

A judge required that the Democrats put up $1 million in order to put their money where their mouths are and be financially liable if the claims in their latest obstructionist lawsuit turn out to be illegitimate. They failed to put up the cash.

Reports indicated that Democrats sent 73 lawyers to Maricopa County in order to pull out all the stops in an attempt to stop transparency from being achieved. Former president Donald Trump released a comment in response to the news.

“The Democrats, upon hearing the news of the Court Order, have sent 73 lawyers to Arizona in an effort to stop this recount and full transparency because THEY KNOW WHAT THEY DID!” he said.”
