Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona is reportedly calling for a "100 percent audit" of Maricopa County in that state. Biggs and two other lawmakers have concerns about the "integrity" of the "election systems" in Arizona.
Biggs, along with Reps. Paul Gosar and David Schweikert, sent a joint letter to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to request the results of the audit, and to compare it to the current tallies.
In a statement released Monday, Biggs said that "Americans and Arizonans must have full confidence in our election processes and systems in order to maintain the bedrock of our constitutional republic. Although Arizona conducts elections with far more transparency and accountability than other states, there have been some issues raised about the integrity of some of our election systems within the state.
"For this reason, I am calling on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to go above and beyond to assure the public of the integrity of Maricopa County's elections. Let's leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of accountability and transparency."
More than 63 percent of Arizona's 3.2 million ballots cast for the presidential election were in Maricopa County. But Biggs points out that hundreds of voters in that county "have signed affidavits alleging their ballots cast in the November 3 election may have been discounted."
This comes after Kelli Ward, Chairwoman of the Arizona GOP, filed a lawsuit to demand a hand count of the ballots in her state.
