Serial Homophobe Jake Hoffman is a far-right Republican MAGA extremist member of the Arizona State Senate, representing District 15. He assumed office on January 9, 2023. His current term ends on January 13, 2025. Hoffman ran for election to the Arizona State Senate to represent District 15. He won in the general election on November 8, 2022. Hoffman runs a digital-marketing company, Rally Forge. The Guardian reported that Rally Forge also formed a fake left-wing front group, America Progress Now, which promoted Green Party candidates online in 2018. Rally Forge was banned from Facebook in 2020 when Hoffman was permanently suspended by Twitter. As of 2021, he is the vice-chair of the Arizona House's Committee on Government and Elections. After Democratic candidate Joe Biden won the state of Arizona in the 2020 election, Hoffman declared himself an elector and attempted to submit documents to the National Archive saying that Arizona had been won by Republican candidate Donald Trump. In 2022, Hoffman proposed to divide Maricopa County into three new counties, since 65% of the Arizona’s population is contained by that single county. – (critics claimed that the proposal was intended to punish election officials in Maricopa County for not overturning the 2020 election results based on Trump's claims of fraud). He is a founding state house member of the radical pro-insurrectionist "Freedom Caucus".

Fake Electors Everywhere Are Indicted With Chesebro's Help, Next Week He Visits Arizona
"Arizona actually had two fake elector plots—one a bunch of sovereign citizen goobers and the other organized by the Arizona Republican Party. The GOP was very proud of their crime, filming the whole thing and posting photos on their Twitter account. They smiled as they committed a felony, telling Republicans that theirs is the “only slate of 11 you need to worry about,” not the sovereign citizens and certainly not the duly elected and qualified electors. The happy faces in that photo are probably not smiling now. Attorney Kenneth Chesebro, who pled guilty in the Georgia racketeering case, was one of the movers behind the fake electors scheme nationwide, and as part of his plea deal he’s agreed to testify against other co-conspirators."

GOP Senator Took Tens of Thousands Of Donation Dollars From Arizona Fake Electors
"Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R), who endeavored to have the 2020 election overturned in favor of Donald Trump, received campaign donations in the tens of thousands of dollars, from three Arizona fake electors, according to a report in The Salt Lake Tribune." [ . . . ] "Arizona state legislator Jake Hoffman contributed $1,200 to Lee in June 2021. Hoffman gained attention ahead of the 2020 election when Facebook banned his digital marketing firm for running a “troll farm” on behalf of the conservative advocacy group Turning Point Action, the political arm of Turning Point USA. Hoffman’s company’s effort was described as “among the most ambitious domestic influence campaigns” uncovered during the 2020 election."

Conservative Lawmakers To Speak At Moms For Liberty Town Hall In Mesa
"Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne and other Republican elected officials are slated to speak at a Mesa town hall Thursday organized by Moms for Liberty, a "parental rights" organization founded in Florida that has been labeled an extremist group and has made national headlines in recent years for attempts to take over school boards and restrict teaching related to race, gender and sexual orientation." [ . . . ] "State lawmakers Sen. Jake Hoffman, R-Queen Creek, Sen. Justine Wadsack, R-Tucson, Rep. Justin Heap, R-Mesa, and Barbara Parker, R-Mesa, are expected to participate in a panel at the event. The panel will be moderated by Descovich, and attendees will be able to ask education-related questions." "Moms for Liberty was founded in 2021 by Descovich and Justice, former school board members in Florida, out of opposition to pandemic-related school closures and mask mandates. Its chapters have since made national headlines for attempts to take over school boards, explosive appearances at school board meetings and efforts to restrict the teaching of race and gender-related topics."

Jake Hoffman: What To Know About Fake Elector, Freedom Caucus Leader
"To state Sen. Jake Hoffman, chair of the far-right Arizona Freedom Caucus, Democrats are "anti-American" members of the "party of death and destruction." He said recently on social media that Gov. Katie Hobbs, whom voters elected in November, is promoting an "insane leftist agenda." On the issue of legal abortion, which he opposes, he calls her “a monster.” The sharp-tongued politician is not much kinder to Republicans who don't fit his Trump-supporting, ultraconservative ideals."

Washington Post: Arizona Prosecutors Investigating “Fake Electors” Scheme
Jul. 13, 2023

"Eleven Arizona Republicans signed a document representing a nonexistent organization and declared, “We are the electors who represent the legal voters of Arizona.” It was part of a scheme by the Trump campaign to organize phony electors in seven states. Attorney General Kris Mayes vowed to look into the matter. According to the Post, prosecutors have contacted many people involved and their lawyers. Investigators are in the “fact-gathering” phase. The “fake electors” under investigation include two lawmakers, Arizona State Senators Anthony Kern of Glendale and Jake Hoffman of Queen Creek. Tyler Bowyer of the far-right activist group Turning Point USA and then-state GOP Chair Kelli Ward also signed their name to the document."
Jake Hoffman Is Obsessed With Porn Shoots At Arizona Schools. It’s A False Flag
"Arizona State Sen. Jake Hoffman is pretty upset about people filming porn in K-12 schools. After two married schoolteachers were busted filming raunchy content for OnlyFans inside Thunderbolt Middle School in Lake Havasu City last year, Hoffman penned a bill to ban filming porn in government-owned buildings."

Arizona Senate (Republicans) Outlaws Diversity, Equity And Inclusion Programs In Governments And Universities
"Saying he was doing what the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. would have wanted, a Queen Creek senator got Republican colleagues to vote to outlaw diversity, equity and inclusion programs in state and local governments and the university system. SB 1694, crafted by Jake Hoffman, bans the use of government money for any such program. It also forbids a public agency from requiring workers to engage in those programs, allowing those employees to sue."

The anti-Drag Storey Time Bill. This bill would apply only to libraries and other government facilities.

This bill, had it become law, would be the same as laws covering a cabaret but with the words "drag show" instead of "cabaret". This is simply a sneaky attempt to outlaw drag shows.

Republicans Plan To Sue Gov. Katie Hobbs For Being Against Discrimination
"It did not take long for Arizona’s new Gov. Katie Hobbs to show her true colors. And it took even less time for Republican lawmakers to show theirs. As one of her first acts, Hobbs signed an executive order directing the Department of Administration to prohibit discrimination in matters of hiring, promotion and pay based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Same with all new state contracts. In other words, the governor wants to make sure the state puts into practice the idea that all Arizonans are “created equal,” a truth our founders believed to be self-evident. Although, apparently not to Republicans in the Legislature’s so-called Arizona Freedom Caucus. The newly formed group announced that it will sue Hobbs over this executive order and others. Republican Sen. Jake Hoffman railed against “Katie Hobbs’ radical woke agenda” and in a press release from the group said, “We’re seeing a new breed of Democratic Fascism take hold of the governor’s office.” I’m not sure from what history or civics class Hoffman came to believe that extending equal protection under the law to all citizens is “woke,” since that would make the U.S. Constitution “woke.” I also don’t believe Hoffman quite understands what is meant by “fascism.” Although he should, since he has actively tried to institute it."

As Hobbs Called For Collaboration, Some Republicans Literally Turned Their Backs
"As Democratic lawmakers applauded Hobbs’ education agenda, Republican Sens. Justine Wadsack and Anthony Kern stood and turned their backs to the governor. Earlier, GOP Reps. Rachel Jones, Alexander Kolodin and Jacqueline Parker walked out of the speech. Midway through the speech, Rep. Jake Hoffman exited the House floor. “It’s unfortunate that some members chose an immature stunt instead, but we have really tough issues in front of us and we need to work together to stop them,” Hobbs said during a news conference after the speech."

"Elected officials and candidates for office in 2022 continue to challenge and question the results of the 2020 presidential election in Arizona.
 
The results have been examined and re-examined, challenged in court and in a monthslong ballot review. No evidence has been found of widespread fraud or error in the results.
 
Yet candidates deny the outcome. Others don't quite go as far. But they raise questions about potential irregularities they say could have influenced the vote and should be examined.
 
The Arizona Republic is listing candidates by category by the race that they are entered in. This list is not complete and will be updated throughout the 2022 election season.

How One Of Arizona’s Fake Trump Electors, Ginni Thomas And An Email Platform For Activism Are Connected
"Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are continuing to press Thomas to testify about her role in pressuring lawmakers to overturn the results of the election which included emails from the FreeRoots platform. Queen Creek Republican Jake Hoffman, who sent a letter to Vice President Mike Pence asking him on January 5 to not accept the election results and was one of Arizona’s fake Trump electors, now seems to operate a website built on FreeRoots and has connections to the old platform’s owner."

Political Stunt To Carve Up Maricopa County Stalls
"The Fountain Hills Republican said he supports this alternative to increase the number of Maricopa County supervisors from five to nine. The stalled bill was introduced by GOP State Representative Jake Hoffman, whose district includes southern Gilbert and parts of Pinal County. He also was one of 11 Republicans who falsely declared himself an elector for the defeated former president Donald Trump in 2020. Hoffman’s bill would have created four separate boards of supervisors in a former Maricopa County. The bill analysis estimated that it would increase costs by at least $155.2 million each year for new county officials and staff. These new supervisors, according to Democratic Representative Lorenzo Sierra of Tolleson, would have likely skewed Republican. “When you did an assessment of the political breakdown of the four [proposed] counties, you saw it was gerrymandered significantly,” he said. At present, four of the county's five supervisors are Republicans. The Board, through a spokesperson, declined comment. HB 2787 has been branded by Democrats, some Republicans, and many in the media as a thinly veiled punishment for Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors, which certified the 2020 Presidential Election in favor of Joe Biden and resisted efforts by state GOP lawmakers to force a now-discredited audit of the results. The stalled bill would dilute the power of current supervisors. “At the time, I thought it was just a way of being able to have more folks that would overturn or decertify or do something funky with the elections,” Sierra added. The new counties with boundaries and populations proposed. [...] Hoffman refutes any accusation his bill is about anything other than representation. While presenting HB 2787 to the committee on February 16, he said, “This bill is not designed as any type of retribution for the county. It is explicitly not an election issue.”"

In other words, as PROVEN by this bill, Republicans and ammosexuals find it wrong to discriminate against inanimate objects but have no problem discriminating against people.

GOP Election Temper Tantrum Drags On, This Time With A Plan To Split Maricopa County

 
"With an actual straight face, Rep. Jake Hoffman said his bill – which would strip the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors of their power – has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the supervisors refused to decertify the 2020 election.
 
Or that the supervisors poked gaping holes in every conspiracy theory offered up by the Senate’s ninja auditors.
 
Any attempt to paint this as retaliation or retribution toward the county is pure conspiracy theory ... ,” Hoffman, R-Queen Creek, told the House Government and Elections Committee during Wednesday’s hearing on his bill. “To say that this has anything to do with the election is laughable and nothing more than a conspiracy theory."
 

[ . . . ]

 
"And to suggest that we should take anything Jake Hoffman says at face value is, as laughs goes, a belly buster.
 
Hoffman is the guy who ran an internet troll farm in the months leading up to the 2020 election, hiring teenagers to blanket the internet with fake posts on conservative talking points and baseless conspiracy theories aimed at getting Donald Trump reelected.
 
He is one of the state’s now-infamous fake electors, avowing in December 2020 that he had been duly elected by Arizona voters to cast one of Arizona’s 11 electoral votes for Trump.
 
He’s the guy who on Jan. 5, 2021, sent an email to a White House staffer, containing an “urgent letter” to be passed along to then-Vice President Mike Pence. The email, obtained by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, implored Pence to “delay the certification of the election results and instead seek clarification from the Arizona legislature as to which slate of Presidential Electors are proper and accurate.” . .

Rep. Jake Hoffman Letter Asked Pence To Not Count Arizona's 2020 Electoral College Votes
"The day before rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol, an Arizona lawmaker, who had signed a document falsely asserting he was one of the state’s presidential electors, sent a letter to Vice President Mike Pence asking him to not accept the state’s official electoral votes. The two-page letter sent by Rep. Jake Hoffman on Jan. 5, 2020, had the same aim as the rioters would the next day: delaying the official certification of Donald Trump’s loss in the 2020 election and the victory of President Joe Biden. Hoffman’s letter asked Pence to order that Arizona’s electors not be decided by the popular vote of the citizens, but instead by the members of the state Legislature. Hoffman, in the letter, asked Pence to “seek clarification from the Arizona legislature as to which slate of electors were proper and accurate.”"

Right-Wing Firm With Ties To Charlie Kirk Posed As Leftist Group To Divide Dems

 
"A digital marketing firm closely linked to the pro-Trump youth group Turning Point USA was responsible for a series of deceptive Facebook ads promoting Green party candidates during the 2018 US midterm elections in an apparent attempt to split the Democratic vote in a number of close races. The ads purported to come from an organization called America Progress Now (APN) and used socialist memes and rhetoric to urge leftwing voters to support Green party candidates.
 
Facebook was aware of the true identity of the advertiser and the deceptive nature of the ads, but the company determined that it did not violate its policies. The conservative marketing firm called itself “Rally Forge”, and went on to set up a pro-Trump domestic “troll farm” for Turning Point Action, a “sister” organization of Turning Point USA, in 2020, earning a permanent ban from Facebook. Turning Point is led by right-wing stooge Charlie Kirk, a favorite target of Twitter’s for his many gaffes as he continues to support Trump.
 
A right-wing political marketing firm that ran a $350,000 pro-Trump Super Pac in the 2016 election, Rally Forge was founded and run by Jake Hoffman, an Arizona Republican who was at the time a member of the town council in Queen Creek, Arizona. In November 2020 Hoffman was elected to serve in the Arizona state legislature."
