The timing of this suggests that Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich aka “Nunchucks” has accepted his inevitable primary defeat on Tuesday.
The Arizona Mirror reports, Brnovich: Senate ‘audit’ dead wrong it its claims that deceased voters cast 2020 ballots:
The Arizona Senate’s partisan “sham fraudit” last year claimed 282 dead voters cast a ballot in the 2020 general election in Maricopa County, but Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said only one of those was genuine, according to a letter he sent to the Senate on Monday.
“Our agents investigated all individuals that Cyber Ninjas reported as dead, and many were very surprised to learn they were allegedly deceased,” Brnovich wrote in his letter to Senate President Karen Fann.
JUST IN: @GeneralBrnovich Concludes investigation into 2020 dead voters.
"Some were so absurd at names and birth dates did not match the deceased."
"Many were very surprised to learn that they were allegedly deceased."

Fann thanked Brnovich and his office for “answering some tough questions from voters and lawmakers who had grave concerns” about the 2020 election.
“This step of the AG’s investigation is critical to restoring the diminished confidence our constituents expressed following the last election,” said Fann, who has privately acknowledged that the so-called “audit” was intended to prove the baseless fraud claims made by former President Donald Trump.
This is total bullshit! Fann was all-in on the Big Lie from the beginning, and supported the “sham fraudit” to try to prove it. Now she wants to disown it? Who is she kidding?
Brnovich, a Republican who is running for the U.S. Senate, opened an investigation 9 months ago and has had his office’s Election Integrity Unit (EIU) investigating the findings of the Senate’s so-called “audit” since its conclusion. He released an “interim report” in April alleging election failures but citing no actual violations of the law, claims that Maricopa County officials said were “full of false innuendo and misrepresentations.”
This is when he still thought he had a chance to win his primary.
The letter Monday says that Cyber Ninjas alleged that 282 people who were dead prior to Oct. 5, 2020 had voted in the Nov. 3, 2020 general election.
Brnovich was unsparing in his criticism of the allegations that dead people voted in the 2020 election.
“After spending hundreds of hours reviewing these allegations, our investigators were able to determine that only one of the 282 on the list was deceased at the time of the election,” he wrote. “All other persons listed as deceased were found to be current voters.”
Brnovich’s office has prosecuted a Scottsdale woman who cast her dead mother’s ballot just days after her mother died. Tracey Kay McKee (a registered Republican) was sentenced in May and avoided prison time. It is not known if this case is the one Brnovich is referring to.
Brnovich’s office also investigated claims from “other sources” [Liz Harris? Canvass report of Maricopa County’s election is out and it is, indeed, SHOCKING] that alleged to have found dead voters and in total looked over 6,352 records shared with them in total and found that none of them were in fact dead voters. Additionally, the record keeping for many of the cases were not properly maintained when handed over to the AG’s office either.
“Some were so absurd the names and birthdates didn’t even match the deceased, and others included dates of death after the election,” Brnovich wrote. “While our office has successfully prosecuted other instances of dead voters, these cases were ultimately determined to be isolated incidents.”
Brnovich stated in his letter that he supports the Senate’s ability to conduct its “audit” of the general election results, which showed that President Joe Biden won by a larger margin than by the official count, he added that there is no evidence for widespread fraud from deceased voters.
“(A)llegations of widespread deceased voters from the Senate Audit and other complaints received by the (Elections Integrity Unit) are insufficient and not corroborated,” Brnovich concluded.
The MAGA/QAnon activists who compiled these fraudulent lists of “dead voters,” voters who are not dead, are voting in tomorrow’s GQP primary election for election denier candidates who feed their delusions by advancing Trump’s Big Lie. Republicans suffer from a disturbed psychosis. They can no longer distinguish reality from the steady diet of lies that Republican politicians and right-wing media feed them.
