AZ Senate to hand-count 2.1 million Maricopa County 2020 ballots

Republicans who control the Arizona Senate announced Thursday they now intend to do a complete recount of 2.1 million ballots in the state’s most populous county to ensure that President Joe Biden’s November win was legitimate. Senate President Karen Fann had been pushing for a “full forensic audit” of Maricopa County’s election result and won a court order on Feb. 26 granting the Senate access to the ballots and tabulation machines. But she had never acknowledged until this week that she wanted a full recount, something state law doesn’t allow expect in narrow circumstances. Bill Christie, The Associated Press.
