Two Republican officials in rural Arizona have been criminally charged for delaying the certification of the 2022 election results.

They were charged with felony offenses of Interference with an Election Officer and Conspiracy.

The indictment alleges that they conspired to delay the canvass of votes cast in Cochise County in the November election. (Trending: Chilling Surveillance Program Under Biden Exposed)

“The repeated attempts to undermine our democracy are unacceptable,” Attorney General Kris Mayes said.

“I took an oath to uphold the rule of law, and my office will continue to enforce Arizona’s elections laws and support our election officials as they carry out the duties and responsibilities of their offices.”

This is a rare instance of criminally prosecuting people connected to the vote canvassing being dragged out last year in six Arizona counties.

“The conspiracy is solely based on an alleged ‘agreement’ to interfere that is nonexistent, as there was none,” said attorney Dennis Wilenchik.
