BREAKING: Rep. Finchem Introduces Resolution To Decertify Three 2020 County Elections
State Representative Mark Finchem just introduced HCR 2033, a concurrent resolution calling for the elections of Maricopa, Pima, and Yuma Counties to be decertified based on what his Monday press release described as “clear and convincing evidence that the elections in those counties were irredeemably compromised.”
“The circumstances surrounding these elections undermine voter confidence in the election system, moreover, they ultimately translate into doubts about election integrity,” said Finchem in a statement.
The state representative addressed detractors who argue that there is no legal process to decertify such a process.
“While some may say there is no valid constitutional, nor statutory grounds for such an action, they clearly are disregarding longstanding jurisprudence. Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution provides, in relevant part, ‘Each State shall appoint, in suchManner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.’ U.S. Const. Art. II, § 1, cl. 2 (emphasis added). The Supreme Court has described the constitutional authority of the state legislatures to determine the manner of choosing electors as ‘plenary.’ See McPherson v. Blecker, 146 U.S. 1, 35 (1892); see also Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98, 104 (2000).Representative Mark Finchem Press Release
Other congressmen introducing HCR 2033 include Representatives Barton: Biasiucci, Burges, Carter, Chaplik, Diaz, Fillmore, Martinez, Nguyen, Parker, Senators Borrelli, Rogers, and Townsend.
The bill, also referenced as “decertifying Arizona’s 2020 electors,” described irregular election practices by “the federal judiciary” during the 2020 election that allowed for extended voter registration deadlines and lambasted Maricopa County for counting over 1,000 ballots that allegedly had no signatures.
44 Whereas, the Arizona Election Code requires that all persons votingHCR 2033
45 in an election must be registered to vote twenty-nine days before an
46 election by law, and voter registration was extended by the federal
1 judiciary to October 23 in direct conflict with A.R.S. section 16-101,
2 subsection A, paragraph 3, a violation of the separation of powers; and
3 Whereas, the Arizona Election Code requires election officials at
4 polling places and points where ballots are received via United States
5 Postal Service to authenticate the signatures of in-person voters; and
6 Whereas, pattern analysis of early voting ballot return envelopes
7 revealed that of 34,448 such ballot return envelope images there were
8 2-copy, 3-copy and 4-copy duplicates originating from 17,126 unique voters
9 while no duplicates were reported in Maricopa County’s canvass report; and
10 Whereas, Maricopa County reported 1,455 ballot envelopes having no
11 signatures, yet they were counted contrary to A.R.S. section 16-547,
12 subsection A, which requires the following: “I declare the following under
13 penalty of perjury: I am a registered voter in [fill in the county name]
14 county Arizona, I have not voted and will not vote in this election in any
15 other county or state, I understand that knowingly voting more than once
16 in any election is a class 5 felony and I voted the enclosed ballot and
