From an AZDem press release:
This morning, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors met to discuss their response to Attorney General Brnovich’s dangerous and transparent political gambit that threatens the public safety of Maricopa County. This is just the latest in a series of baldly political moves from Brnovich as he tries to win the favor of former President Trump.
As a reminder, Brnovich recently threatened to gut $676 million in state funding for Maricopa County unless they turn over their residents’ private information – including social security numbers – to the untrustworthy Cyber Ninjas for the “audit.”
As many have already noted, this is nothing but a transparent tactic by Brnovich to cave to political pressure from former President Trump and his primary opponents – because apparently, Brnovich cares more about his political ambitions than Maricopa residents whose public safety is in jeopardy because of his actions.
Here’s a breakdown of just how much Brnovich’s political ploy will cost Maricopa:
Just over $98 million of the $164 million budget from the Maricopa Sheriffs Office.
$63.9 million of the $107 million budget from the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.
$60 million of the $101 million from the Superior Court.
Over $2 million for emergency management.
$1.8 allotted funds for schools, which is over half of what the county has allocated.
$10 million of the $17 million budget for public health, even as COVID remains a threat.
And, ironically, $6.6 million from the $11 million allocated towards elections.
Ed.: It is utterly unacceptable that AG Brnovich would imperil the health and safety of Maricopa residents to please his master, Trump. He took an oath to the people of Arizona, and he’s betraying it in the hope of an endorsement of the LOSER of the 2020 Presidential election in Arizona. How seriously could he possibly take his oath were he elected to the U.S. Senate?
Send Brnovich a message that his betrayal of Arizona’s citizens has not passed unnoticed.
