Arizona Republican Jim Lamon Is In The Hot Seat

Meanwhile, seeking Trump’s primary endorsement, Lamon’s GOP primary opponent Mark Brnovich refuses to investigate his state party’s attempt to flip Arizona’s electoral votes

 Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jim Lamon is in the hot seat for his role as as one of Arizona’s fake electors, after the January 6 Select Committee on Friday issued subpoenas to “14 Republicans from seven states who served on bogus slates of Trump electors in 2020 as part of the Trump campaign’s scheme to subvert the Electoral College.”

Two weeks ago, at Donald Trump’s Jan. 15 rally in Arizona, Lamon told Vice News “of course” he would cooperate with the Jan. 6 Committee to discuss his role helping to coordinate the state’s fake electors.

And over the weekend, Lamon was pushed to answer for his involvement by KPHO-TV and KTVK-TV’s Dennis Welch with Lamon defending his role as a fake elector who tried to overturn Arizonans’ 2020 votes, while totally laughing off the idea that there should be any consequences at all for his actions.

WATCH:

Meanwhile, Lamon’s fellow GOP Senate candidate and state Attorney General Mark Brnovich is looking the other way on the Arizona Republican Party’s last-ditch and possibly felonious attempt to flip the state’s 2020 election results. On Friday, Brnovich told KTAR radio that “anybody that has any questions or concerns related to that should contact the Department of Justice.”

Brnovich’s impartiality on the matter was called into question last week by Arizona Republic columnist Laurie Roberts, who noted that Brnovich is fundraising off of his ties to and support for Trump, all while looking the other way on Trump and his Arizona allies’ efforts to manipulate and flip Arizona’s 2020 electoral votes.

Instead, Brnovich is continuing to use taxpayer-funded AG office resources to “investigate” — read: try to give credibility to — Arizona Republicans’ sham Maricopa County “audit,” which found no fraud.
