No, I'm not talking about the naked, unprovoked aggression of Russia visited on the Democratic nation of Ukraine.
I'm talking about Arizona Republicans. You won't find this on Fox News.
care to let the rest of us in on it, since the WOP is paywallEd?
PHOENIX — Arizona Republicans shielded legislators from the state’s open-records law this week — a move that comes months after the release of thousands of documents detailing extensive efforts to undermine Joe Biden’s victory here in the 2020 presidential election.
Documents that have surfaced over the past two years include correspondence describing the inner workings of a partisan review of the 2020 election by the Cyber Ninjas, as well as emails by Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, urging lawmakers to overturn President Donald Trump’s narrow defeat in the state.
The new rules will greatly limit the public release of lawmakers’ communications. State senators will not have to disclose any text messages sent on personal devices, even when dealing with state business. For lawmakers in both the Senate and the House, emails and other documents will be destroyed after 90 days — in many cases, well before members of the public know to ask for them.
“I think it is petty, vindictive and contrary to the plain interests of transparency and government accountability in Arizona,” said David Bodney, a lawyer who has represented the Arizona Republic in open-records litigation over the 2020 election review.
THERE ARE A FEW OTHER STATES THAT ARE SIMILAR TO THAT.
IMO... IT'S WRONG! "WE" PAY FOR THE PHONES. ETC. "WE" SHOULD KNOW WHAT'S BEING DONE ON THEM.
SO....... FILING A FOIA EVERY 89 DAYS, WOULD PUT AN END TO IT, I'D THINK.
THE BACKLOG WOULD BE HUGE LOL
It's ironic that the far right claims Biden won because of election interference, while the Republicans in AZ apparently made their own election interference they want to cover up.
We should remember that this was the state that ran Kari(scary) Lake, who almost won.
ARIZONA IS ALSO HOME TO:
"BOMB, BOMB, BOMB~BOMB, BOMB, IRAN".JOHN MCCAIN

This mentality is one of the biggest reasons that I voted for Obama in 2008..........NEVER McCain!
