Former Maricopa County, AZ County Reporter Adrian Fontes, who is running for Secretary of State in Arizona, bitterly complained today in a tweet about being investigated by AZ AG Mark Brnovich. The Arizona State Senate sent criminal referrals to Brnovich after the results of the Maricopa County audit conducted by the AZ State Senate were released.
“What became clear to me after engaging with the office of Attorney General Brnovich is that this is merely a political stunt intended to benefit Brnovich’s 2022 Senate race by inflaming the delusions of conspiracy theorists,” Fontes said Monday in a statement about the interview, which he said was voluntary and took place Thursday.
“This is not a genuine effort to investigate the election process of 2020, which has already been picked apart and scrutinized relentlessly.”
