Arizona State Sen. Sonny Borrelli (R) has filed a 1487 request to state Attorney General Mark Brnovich asking for an investigation into the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (MCBOS) after the MCBOS refused to comply with a subpoena from the state Senate requiring them to turn over routers, network logs, and passwords used in the 2020 election.
The news was broken on Twitter by State Sen. Wendy Rogers (R), who wrote, “The 1487 request to the Arizona Attorney General has been filed against the Maricopa Board of Supervisors by @SonnyBorelli on behalf of the Arizona Senate. I support this and hope the @GeneralBrnovich lays the smack down. Throw the book at them!” Attached to the post were screenshots of Borrelli’s investigative request to Brnovich.

The MCBOS formally announced their decision to refuse to comply with the senate subpoena on Tuesday, claiming “Maricopa County long ago provided to the Arizona Senate everything competent auditors would need to affirm the accuracy and security of the November General Election” as reported by National File.
Borrelli made headlines in July after being praised during a speech by President Donald Trump, who told Rogers, “I like that. Wendy, you know, we just have a new one: Wendy, Kelli, and Borrelli. That’s going to be a very famous statement someday I suspect.”
While Brnovich’s office has not yet formally responded to Borelli’s request for an investigation into the MCBOS, in June Brnovich slammed Biden regime Attorney General and anti-Secondment activist Merrick Garland for threatening to meddle in the Arizona audit:
In a letter to Garland, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich slammed his comments as being “troubling,” and displaying “an alarming disdain for state sovereignty.” Brnovich said that the current “posturing” against the Maricopa County forensic audit did not “amuse” his office, adding that they will not” tolerate any effort to undermine or interfere with our State Senate’s audit to reassure Arizonans of the accuracy of our elections.”
Brnovich reminded Garland that the states created the federal government, not the other way around, in what seemed to be a clear challenge to Garland’s attempt to assert illegitimate authority over Arizona and their electoral process. “Arizonans will not sit back and let the Biden administration abuse its authority, refuse to uphold laws, or attempt to commandeer our state’s sovereignty,” Brnovich said, adding in a tweet that they stand ready “to defend federalism and state sovereignty against any partisan attacks or federal overreach.”
Widespread evidence of election irregularities have already been uncovered in the Maricopa County audit, despite the efforts of Democrat Party officials to stop the audit from proceeding.
