Trump-Endorsed Secretary of State Candidate Mark Finchem Slams Arizona Supreme Court for Ruling Ban of School Mask Mandates is ‘Unconstitutional’
Arizona state representative Mark Finchem, who received the Trump endorsement as a secretary of state candidate, is calling out his state’s supreme court for refusing to stand up for the rights of children.
Finchem is responding to a recent Arizona high court ruling that a state-wide ban of forced masking in schools is unconstitutional.
“The Arizona Supreme Court ruling that the Arizona Legislature’s laws banning school mask mandates and a series of other measures in the budget bills are “unconstitutional” is an unfortunate and ill-conceived development, depriving Arizonans of their rights and liberties and destroying Arizona’s election integrity on a technicality,” Finchem said.
“By siding with Democrat-controlled education groups who argued that the Legislature violated a requirement that the titles of bills specifically describe all parts of the law, the Court is nullifying the will of the Arizona Legislature, itself representative of the will of the people of Arizona, for what amounts to little more than a typographical error. Rather than bend to the will of radical left-wing interest groups, the Court should have allowed the laws to remain in effect until that simple error could be corrected by the legislature,” he added.
Finchem is calling for his fellow lawmakers to snap back into action and correct these errors so children can be protected from the excesses of the COVID regime.
“Meanwhile, there has been little acknowledgement of the cause of the Legislature’s action: that our hands were forced when Governor Doug Ducey vetoed 32 bills of substantive law that would have benefited every parent with children in government-run schools and helped secure every future election. With the court’s strike down of several laws that would have taken effect, we will have to work quickly to re-enact those measures separately,” Finchem said.
“We have to protect the integrity of the vote, a foundational issue for our national sovereignty and national security. We have to safeguard our rights and liberties, given to us by God, including the rights of parents to decide what is best for their children. Those are the priorities of the Legislature. So, too, they should be the priorities of the Court,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on Finchem’s comprehensive reform proposal to end election fraud in the state of Arizona:
“Arizona state Representative Mark Finchem (R-Oro Valley) is running for secretary of state, and he recently shared his thoughts on how he could reform the election process in that position and in a state suffering a crisis of confidence in elections.
“There are a couple things we have on the radar. One of those is a ballot fraud security countermeasures process that would put a UV-light activated watermark onto ballots. In doing that, we are able to serialize the sheets of paper so that we know what is the defined universe of ballots that are in the system, of ballots that have been issued that are available,” Finchem told Big League Politics Live.
“If we are able to put a watermark and a serialization onto the paper, that means we can account for the number of ballots. Now, of course, that would not be tied to the voters so we would still have an anonymous voting system,” he added.
Finchem also wants to make sure that voters can verify if their ballots have been counted and personally make sure their ballots have not been intercepted by a third party. He does not call for an end to mail-in voting entirely but believes that additional security measures can be implemented to secure the process.
“There are a lot of people calling to end the mail ballot system. That’s been run in Arizona here for 20 years. I think that’s probably here to stay, but I do have a problem with electronic equipment counting ballots that appears to be calculating as opposed to tabulating,” Finchem said.
He said that much of his policy still hinges upon the results of the ongoing Maricopa County audit of ballots and counting machines. Finchem says he has received death threats and endured other harassment since announcing his run for secretary of state.“
Finchem is the secretary of state that Arizona needs to defend the rights of the people. The current Republicans in charge have failed consistently at repelling the evil of the Democrats.
