The controversial Arizona audit of the 2020 election has been widely panned, getting the John Oliver treatment on Sunday evening.
"It makes us look like idiots," told The New York Times.
Now one Arizona Republican has identified the one person in the state who can put an end to the circus.
"I can complain about it, but at the end of the day it's driven by leadership," Boyer told KTAR News 92.3 FM's Gaydos and Chad.
Boyer said Republican Senate President Karen Fann has the power to end the audit.
"If the Senate president was willing to say enough is enough, then certainly," he said. "But can one state senator make that call? No."
Seth Meyers is baffled the GOP treats Trump as a 'good luck charm' after losing White House and Congress
The host of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" took a closer look on Monday at how the GOP refuses to move on from Donald Trump.
"The Republican Party has decided that its path back to power is complete and total fealty to Donald Trump and they're purging anyone who refuses to repeat his lies about the 2020 election -- no matter how destructive it is for the country," Meyers said.
"It is exceedingly rare in the history of this country for a political party to stay so closely tied to an ex-president, let alone one that who is as deeply unpopular as Donald Trump," he said. "And let's remember, the GOP didn't just lose, they got wiped out. They lost the presidency and both house of Congress, Trump never once cracked 50% job approval and never won the popular vote. Meanwhile, President Biden is riding high with a 63% approval rating in a new poll out today."
"The GOP is treating Trump like a good luck charm even after he brought them terrible luck. If the first time Dumbo tried to fly, he plummeted to the ground and broke all four legs and both ears, he would've let go of the feather," he said.
He went on to remind his audience of the January 6th insurrection by supporters of Trump seeking to overturn the election results.
"Any sane political party would move on from a president who is both deeply unpopular, lost by a wide margin, and on top of everything else left nothing but misery and destruction in his wake and yet Republicans are not moving on. They're doubling down, they're as committed to Trump as ever and now they don't care much about how they have to lie or debase themselves to prove their loyalty to him," Meyers concluded.
Republicans Are Purging Anyone Who Won't Embrace Trump's Election Lies: A Closer Look www.youtube.com
On Monday, Newsweek reported that far-right attorney Lin Wood — a longtime purveyor of election fraud conspiracy theories — has confidently predicted the arrest of Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and multiple other state officials for not overturning President Joe Biden's win in Georgia.
"In a video posted to Twitter early Monday by @PatriotTakes, Wood tells an unnamed interviewer that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, Lt. Governor Geoffrey Duncan, Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger, and Attorney General Chris Carr will all be arrested soon," reported Cammy Pedroja. "Wood didn't specify the allegations against the Georgia officials that led to this predictions. Last year, Kemp, Duncan, Raffensperger and Carr repeatedly refused Trump's request to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state."
"It's called election fraud," said Wood. "That's not a good crime to commit ... That's pretty close to treason."
Wood has spearheaded multiple lawsuits to try to reverse election results from 2020, all of which were smacked down. Wood, who faces professional sanctions from the Georgia Bar for his antics, is ironically also facing an investigation that he committed voter fraud by casting a ballot in Georgia while living in South Carolina.
