Over the last two years, false claims alleging rampant election fraud in Arizona led to an audit of the results in Maricopa County and have dominated GOP campaign trails.
Except after those years, only individuals were indicted on malpractice totaling 12 ballots of the more than 4 million cast in the state.
In an interview with “60 minutes” on Sunday, Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who voted for Donald Trump, has said those claims of rampant fraud are bogus.
"Horse****, and that’s what it is. Most of it’s horse****, and I’ve been trying to scrape it off my shoes for the last year," Brnovich said.
Brnovich added that his investigation in the election is mostly over, and said those campaigning on fraud are swindling voters.
