All too often, investigations reveal misconduct and illegal activity by U.S. politicians. An abundance of evidence gets presented, but then the issue sort of disappears. No one is ever held accountable.
It has to be one of the most frustrating aspects of the American political process. The lack of accountability seems to encourage cheating and lying. Americans are frustrated. However, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has provided a glimmer of hope.
On Tuesday, Brnovich exercised his powers as Arizona’s AG and issued a letter to enforce criminal actions against his state’s Secretary of State. The corrupt Katie Hobbs shut down the Arizona candidate petition portal. This is a criminal violation of Arizona state law.
The law in question reads, “The Secretary of State shall provide a system for qualified electors to sign a nomination petition; for candidates for statewide and legislative offices by way of a secure internet portal.” In January, Brnovich forewarned Hobbs in another letter.
Arizona Title 16 says that “a public officer who knowingly fails or refuses to perform that duty in the manner prescribed by law is guilty of either a class 6 felony or a class 3 misdemeanor.” The Gateway Pundit reported that Brnovich warned Hobbs he would seek jail time.
Hobbs attempted to sue Brnovich by requesting injunctive relief. But her feeble attempt to dodge justice was denied. Nevertheless, Hobbs still chose to defy the court ruling. She shut down a petition portal for certain candidates, clearing a criminal violation of Arizona state law.
A few days ago, Brnovich sent a letter to County Attorney Brian McIntyre requesting that Hobbs be prosecuted. This is one of the most direct calls for political accountability for corrupt public officials who defy the law. Katie Hobbs is a manipulative and corrupt politician.
She must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Hobbs is orchestrating a crooked strategy to steal another election. Due process under the law is her constitutional right. Hobbs has the right to secure counsel and is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
But she’s not innocent. Her recent actions are blatant proof of her corruption. Katie Hobbs needs to be found guilty and taken into custody. It would be refreshing to finally see some accountability for political corruption.
