In Arizona, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors refused to comply with a subpoena related to the 2020 election audit.
Arizona Senate President Karen Fann and Arizona Senate Judiciary Chairman Warren Peterson issued the subpoena last week.
Follow their refusal, there is now there is an official request from the Arizona Senate Majority Whip Sonny Borrelli in order to have an investigation conducted by Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich.
The subpoena sought information and access regarding six matters, which included access to the election routers as well as “user names, passwords, pins and/or security keys or tokens required to access, or otherwise relating to, any and all ballot tabulation devices used in connection with the November 3, 2020 general election.”
“Yesterday the Board of Supervisors ignored the subpoena deadline and failed to provide the routers used in the November election,” he added. “They failed to provide passwords and security keys required to access tabulation devices. They failed to provide splunk logs and similar data.”
“The level of disrespect and contempt from the supervisors toward Senate leadership and Arizona voters is appalling.”

TRENDING 👇 Trump Critic Kathy Griffin Reveals Her Dark Past
Comedian Kathy Griffin gained political notoriety in 2017 after she “joked” about killing then-President Trump in a photo using a fake severed head of the former president.
The comedian, who is now 60, revealed she is battling stage one lung cancer. In an interview with ABC News, Griffin revealed much more about her past. Over the past four years, Griffin said her life spiraled after facing immense backlash for posing with a bloodied, severed fake head of then-President Trump. Griffin struggled with pill addiction and thoughts of suicide after posting the picture in 2017.
“I thought, ‘Well, I don’t even drink… Big deal, I take a couple pills now and again, who doesn’t?’” she told ABC News. “Also, my age was a big part of it. I mean, who bottoms out and tries to take their life at 59? It’s almost a joke, right, and by the way, someday, this will all be comedy. Trust me… I was laughing to stay alive. And what I found is I felt like if I can’t make others laugh, then there’s no purpose for me to live. There’s no reason for me to live.”
“I just felt there was impending doom,” she said. “I was already starting to think … it was time for me to go. And I was certainly being told by an awful lotta people it’s time for me to go.” More from Fox News:
After an apology and a subsequent rescinding of that apology, Griffin embarked on the cheekily titled “Laugh Your Head Off” tour in 2017. She noted that it was around that time that she was introduced to pills, leading to a behind-the-scenes battle that would ultimately lead to a suicide attempt…
She was first prescribed Provigil by a doctor. That was soon followed by a prescription to Ambien to help her sleep followed by painkillers to help her manage various injuries. The star says that her dependence on pills “got out of control very rapidly.”
Her addiction quickly led to thoughts of suicide. She says that her life was dedicated to getting on stage and showing people how resilient she was. However, amid the immense backlash from the Trump photo, she revealed that she started to feel her critics were right and that there was no next chapter in her career or life.
