Judge dismisses lawsuit over disputed AZ GOP election

An Arizona judge turned down a lawsuit that requested the court intervene in the Arizona Republican Party election recount, claiming that he has no jurisdiction over inter-party disputes. 

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Michael Kemp ruled against the legal action Monday, according to the Arizona Republic.

Two state Republicans filed a lawsuit in March after Kelli Ward, the party’s chairwoman, won reelection to the post that month by a margin of 42 votes, according to the Washington Examiner.

“Whether or not any chicanery took place in the voting process on January 23, this Court finds that it does not have judicial authority to intervene in an inter-party dispute that is guided by rules and procedures agreed upon by an independent political party,” Kemp wrote.

“Superior Courts in Arizona are mindful and supportive of transparency and fair play,” Kemp said.

He added, “This court also [finds] that judicial intervention would be inappropriate given the available remedies outlined above and the public interest in the independence of political parties from judicial oversight.”

“The lawsuit was a distraction, and we’re happy to see it dismissed,” Jack Wilenchik, the attorney representing the state party, told the Examiner.

He may be happy to see the lawsuit end, but the election controversy in Arizona is far from over. The Maricopa County recount continues to fill headlines as the state evaluates its 2020 election ballots.

Start making money this time… Spend more time with your family & relatives by doing jobs that only require you to have a computer and an internet access and you can have that at your home. Start bringing up to $65000 to $70000 a month. I’ve started this job and earn a handsome income and now I am exchanging it with you, so you can do it too.

I’m sorry but the old saying goes “if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.” Your interjection is ridiculous and unbelievable amounting to a scam.

Amen. Comments sound like a scam. Over and over. Why doesn’t FB stop the fraud instead of opinions?

So a careful examination of the voting process and the accompanying POSSIBLE fraud is getting between the 2 parties? How is that fair to the voting public which is what this lawsuit is all about? Some people hate Trump so much they would deny and discount any or all votes for him. I personally feel that the voting in a presidential election should use the same process in all 50 states. Absentee ballots included. Do away with provisional ballots. And for that matter, do away with judges who don’t consider the ramifications of illegal votes. They don’t belong on the bench.

Yes, JeffK……I agree with you. But what’s to hate about President Trump. Americans have been asking for a transparent President for years. And here he is. He says it like it is. The crime in our government is very obvious. Very few people want the truth, because that would interfere with the big lie. Greed and lies only lead to disaster which is what we are experiencing now. NEVER STOP FIGHTING FOR TRUTH. As our lives depend on it.

Looks like Judge Michael Kemp has been warned by the Democrats. This fraudulent 2020 election lives on.
