The Washington Post recently reported that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s investigation into former President Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results may be based in part on prosecutors showing a similar pattern of behavior in other states.
The theory revolves around the work of some firms hired to prove Trump won, but whose results have never been released because they were unable to do so.
Willis is interested in the work the companies have been doing in Georgia and other states.
That potentially means Arizona’s most vilified Republicans could soon become heroes of some kind…in Georgia.
Arizona Republicans who put the country above the party
For example, the Georgia prosecutor wants to know all about the pressure Trump’s henchmen are putting on former Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers.
Bowers, a staunch Republican, refused to ignore his oath to abandon the law and the Constitution to overturn the voters’ decision in Arizona and declare Trump the victor in our state.
Bowers resisted the pressure, saying, “I was trying to send a clear message: This is bullshit.” Abolishing the fundamental right to vote, the idea that lawmakers could annul your election, is not conservative. That’s fascist. And I’m not a fascist.”
Also staunch were Republican Maricopa County Supervisors Clint Hickman, Jack Sellers and Bill Gates, and Republican Maricopa County Commissioner Stephen Richer, none of whom would be pressured to renounce their oaths.
They all put state and country above the party. (What a concept.)
Then there were the wrong voters who put the party ahead of the country
Not long ago it was reported that eight Republican sham voters in Georgia had accepted immunity deals from Willis.
They are said to be cooperating with the prosecutor’s office.
We had a similar list of fake voters here, led by former Arizona Republican Party Chari Kelli Ward. Their goal was to replace the state’s 11 presidential electors, established by voting for Biden, with fake Trump voters.
If Willis wants to establish a pattern of vote-rigging in states outside of Georgia, the events in Arizona fit well.
How Georgia prosecutors could be heroes in Arizona
Or as Morgan Cloud, a law professor at Emory University in Atlanta and an expert on Georgia’s RICO law, put it in the Washington Post: “For example, acts of obstruction of justice committed in Arizona could be relevant if the company’s goal.” is…” The racketeering activities should overturn the 2020 presidential election both nationwide and in Georgia.”
Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes previously said she would be reaching out to federal officials about Arizona’s bogus voters.
I’m sure she’s also keeping Willis’s case under review and exploring ways he could help her bring criminal justice to those who tried to falsify our election results.
That potentially means Georgia’s most vilified politicians could soon become heroes of some kind…in Arizona.
