GOP Maricopa County Board Chair Says ‘No Evidence’ of Election Fraud | Phoenix New Times

With the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors expected to soon certify the November election results, Republican Board Chair Clint Hickman says that there is “no evidence of fraud or misconduct or malfunction.”

Hickman is one of the handful of local Republicans who have forcefully pushed back on the false claims of fraud as President Donald Trump refuses to concede to Democratic president-elect Joe Biden, and many state GOP elected officials continue to peddle in baseless conspiracy theories about a rigged election. The letter also comes amidst calls by other local Republicans to investigate the election results in Maricopa County and a battery of flimsy lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign alleging shoddy election administration.

The letter, made public on November 17, was addressed to “Maricopa County voters.” Hickman wrote that while the Board “considered many theories” about the election results, “none of these theories have proven true or raised the possibility the outcome of the election would be different.”
