Arizona Senate President: Arizona Senate Doesn’t Have Authority To Recall Electors

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann spoke out on electors being recalled.

According to Fann, the Arizona Senate does not have the authority to recall electors.

The Arizona Senate lacks the authority to recall electors, the legislative body’s Republican president said on Friday.

That statement by Karen Fann came in response to fellow state Sen. Wendy Rogers, who called for a new election after the Arizona Senate held a briefing in which contractors hired for its 2020 election audit in Maricopa County said they don’t have enough information to complete a report.

Fann told One America News Network, a cable news channel with a reporter who is controversially helping to fund the audit while covering it, that the Arizona Senate has the power to help the auditors get the materials and information they say they need (likely through more subpoenas, along with a door-to-door canvass), but the question of decertifying the election will be left up to others.

“The Senate body — we do not have the authority to do that. So, this is what we have said, and I want to make this very clear on the record,” Fann told host Natalie Harp.

She did not rule out a recall at all, however.

She said that it will be up to Congress and that they will turn the findings of the audit to a variety of attorney generals

“I am not saying there is no way it can be done. What I am saying is our Senate body does not have the authority to do it. However, we will turn [the audit’s findings] over to the attorneys general, not only on the state level, but on the federal level. And we will turn it over to Congress, and they can make those decisions. And that is, I’m saying, if there were any wrongdoings,” she said.

“It could be that we might just find a lot of irregularities in the sense there were problems with the votes,” Fann acknowledged. “But if, if, if those determinations show there was enough difference in a count of the electoral — particularly since it was such a small margin here as it was in some other states, then Congress is going to have to take care of that.”

So, this gives us insight into what is going to happen after the report is released.

The report is going to be sent to AGs and Congress and that is where it is going to be sorted out.

Thanks to Fann’s efforts getting an audit we know have these bombshells:
