Corrupt Maricopa Election Official Asked DHS to Conduct Media ‘Boot Camps’

'... hold bootcamps for media representatives such as FOX News or CNN to enhance media's understanding of how elections are administered... '

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Maricopa County election recorder Stephen Richer, proud operator of an anti-Trump super PAC, tried to secure the support of the Department of Homeland Security in his attempt to censor the American people.

Richer reportedly met with the DHS agency’s Protecting Critical Infrastructure from Misinformation and Disinformation Subcommittee in March of this year in order to brief them on the potential spread of “misinformation,” according to Just the News.

In particular, he sought the aid of the DHS’ branch called Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, in order to monitor the opinions of the American people.

Information about the meeting was attained by Christina Bobb, Trump’s attorney for his 2024 presidential bid. She was apparently given the information by Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who “obtained it through legal discovery.”

In the documents attained by Lake and Bobb, it is revealed that Richer “suggested that CISA hold bootcamps for media representatives such as FOX News or CNN to enhance media’s understanding of how elections are administered.”

In other words, he wanted to run an anti-Trump boot camp for legacy media hacks so that they could better expose those spreading “malinformation.”

Richer also told the subcommittee that “the pressure on his staff will continue to build and it will become difficult to perform statutory responsibilities needed to establish safe, credible, and fair elections.”

Before the 2022 midterms, Richer had started a PAC in order to stop Lake from winning the gubernatorial election by any means possible.

According to the website of his PAC, Pro Democracy Republicans of Arizona, Republicans lost in 2020 because of Trump, whose coattails evidently helped bring down incumbent Sen. Martha McSally as well.

“The Arizona election wasn’t stolen,” Richer’s site claims. “We Republicans simply had a presidential candidate who lost, while we had many other candidates who won. It’s time we Republicans accept and acknowledge that fact.”

The PAC purports to “support pro-democracy Arizona Republicans.”

Before the recent midterms, Richer accepted large sums of money from Democrat contributors, who clearly used him to divide the Republican Party against itself.

“Thanks to a few generous donors this is now launching. Join me if you care about traditional Republican ‘stuff’ (free people, free markets, rule of law), but also don’t believe in conspiracies about the 2020 election or that Jan 6 was a tourist event,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet.
