(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Arizona Secretary of State, Democrat Katie Hobbs, may once again be using her position of authority to manipulate election rules in her favor by punishing those who are concerned about election integrity, according to a Washington Post report.
The George Soros-backed Hobbs—who currently is running against GOP candidate Kari Lake in the state’s gubernatorial race—previously used her office to help secure the 2020 election for Democrats Joe Biden and Mark Kelly.
Among her dubious claims was that efforts to verify voter registrations by physically knocking on doors was tantamount to voter intimidation.
But conservatives contend that Hobbs’s suspicious resistance to election-integrity measures speaks volumes about her true intentions.
In the aftermath of the 2020 steal, concerned citizens are now taking it upon themselves to monitor unmanned ballot boxes where widespread ballot-stuffing and illegal ballot-harvesting is suspected to have taken place.
But some Phoenix-area voters complained about being under surveillance while at ballot dropboxes, the Post reported.
“There’s a group of people hanging out near the ballot dropbox filming and photographing my wife and I as we approached the dropbox and accusing us of being a mule,” one voter who lives in the Phoenix metro said.
“They took … photographs of our license plate and of us and then followed us out the parking lot in one of their cars continuing to film.”
Surveillance video footage reveals a man in an SUV observing the ballot box, presumably to ensure that no suspicious activity occurs after the 2020 steal.
In any case, Hobbs is in a desperate situation as she watches her former lead over rival Kari Lake dissapate.
Earlier this month, when Hobbs was asked why she refuses to debate Lake, Hobbs said that Lake is too mean and forthright.
“Look, what I’ve been focused on is opportunities like this, where they can see us back to back and hear directly from us about the issues that are important to Arizonans and how we would govern without a circus like she created during the GOP Republican primary,” she said.
“I have no desire to be a part of the spectacle that she’s looking to create,” Hobbs deflected. “Because that doesn’t do any service to the voters of Arizona to hear from us, where we stand on the issues and how we would govern.”
