Arizona Senate President Karen Fann’s email communications related to the audit of Maricopa County’s election results have been published online.

The trove of documents was secured by a nonpartisan watchdog group, and they show Fann giving a number of conflicting responses.

Fann’s emails from November through May related to the audit were made available after the records request by the watchdog group, American Oversight.

Fann claims in several messages that the audit is not about reinstating former President Trump, even acknowledging in one May email that Joe Biden won the election.

However, in a December email, Fann said she had received full support from Trump and had several conversations with Rudy Giuliani about exposing election fraud.

The full set of documents obtained by American Oversight are available at americanoversight.org.
