Domino Theory: ALEC Lawmakers Eye Arizona-Style Election Audits in Other States

 

American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) lawmakers are hoping to copy and paste the controversial Arizona “audit” of the 2020 November presidential election just like they do model legislation from the corporate bill mill.

The Arizona audit was engineered by ALEC’s treasurer and second highest ranking board member, Senate President Karen Fann (R), the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) reported. Since ALEC does not have a vice chair this year, Fann is likely next in line to serve as its public face as national chair.

Run by an obscure firm called Cyber Ninjas that promoted “Stop the Steal” conspiracy theories and has never done an election audit before, the process has been called a “fraudit” by Arizona’s secretary of state and denounced by GOP Arizona election officials. 

But that hasn’t stopped ALEC’s Fann from touting it as the “gold standard” and Republican politicians from trying to force similar audits in other battleground states.

And Trump himself is spreading the lie that he will be reinstated as president in August, something almost one in three Republican voters now believe is likely to happen, according to a new Politico poll.
