Arizona Senate President Says State’s 11 Electors Can’t Be Recalled After Audit

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann said that the state Senate lacks the authority to recall electors.

During an interview on One America News, host Natalie Harp asked about Arizona Republican State Sen. Wendy Rogers calling for a new election after the Arizona Senate held a briefing on the Maricopa County audit.

Fann responded by saying the Arizona Senate has the power to help the auditors get materials and information, 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 said.


“We as a Senate body — we have the ability to subpoena information because we make laws. And we’re entitled to have the information to determine how to write those laws. That’s why we are successful in court, and that’s what we’re doing. It’s all about election integrity. It’s not about the Trump-Biden race. It’s not about the Kelly-Martha McSally race,” she added.

When Harp asked again about what can be done if widespread fraud is uncovered, Fann seemed to pass the buck to someone else.

“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,” Fann 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.”


“They are going to have to make those decisions. This has never happened, in my knowledge, in the history of America. So, I don’t think there’s any precedent set for it at this point,” she said.


Donald Trump reacted to the preliminary findings of the independent election audit team that testified in an update to the Arizona Senate last Thursday.

“Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election Audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden administration,” Trump said.


Arizona Republican State Sen. Wendy Rogers called for “the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona” and demanding that a “new election must be conducted” following explosive news this week.

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan testified on Thursday that the auditors reported 74,000 ballots that were received and included in the 2020 Election in Maricopa County than were mailed out.


Logan said they found 74,243 mail-in ballots with no clear record of them ever being sent.

Logan stated that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped considerably as the volume of the ballots increased.

Logan claimed that Maricopa County is withholding mail-in ballot images that can be used as evidence.

Logan also said there were 11,326 individuals who did not show up on the version of the voter rolls prepared the day after the election but did show up on the Dec. 4 list as not only being registered but having voted.

And he said there were nearly 4,000 people listed as registering to vote after the cutoff on Oct. 15.
