"Republican elected officials in a small Arizona county talked with state lawmakers and activists about hand-counting ballots there in 2022 and urged their counterparts in other counties to push for hand counts as well, newly released public records show.


The records from Cochise county, a Republican stronghold along the US-Mexico border, only came to light after a lawsuit from a watchdog group, American Oversight, and took well over a year to be released. The original records request from American Oversight was filed in November 2022."

"“They will not stop,” Chioma Chukwu, interim executive director of American Oversight, told the Guardian. “They’re going to continue until they get what they want, which is pushing for hand counts, delaying the certification of election results if the election does not go their way in November.”"

'Chaos': GOP Officials In AZ County Cost Taxpayers Hundreds Of Thousands In Election Fights
"Two Republican county supervisors in a solidly red Arizona county are costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars in multiple unsuccessful election-related crusades in the courts. The Guardian reports that Tom Crosby and Peggy Judd — who both sit on the Cochise County Board of Supervisors — have now been subpoenaed as part of a possible investigation by the Arizona Attorney General's office. Both Crosby and Judd have tried consistently to switch the county's ballot-counting process to a hand count rather than a machine count, resulting in various lawsuits against the county, along with subsequent legal settlements totaling roughly $300,000. Despite Cochise County voting for former President Donald Trump in 2020 by a 19-point margin, Crosby refused to certify his county's election results even after a judge compelled him to do so."

A Pima County judge ordered Republicans Peggy Judd and Tom Crosby to pay more than $36,000 in legal fees. It's unclear if the money will come out of their pockets or if taxpayers will pick up the tab. Judd and Crosby refused to certify the county-wide election results, claiming the electronic tabulators were not properly certified, but they were sued by the Secretary of State's office and lost – and now have to pay the legal fees for the opposing side."

Why An Arizona County Turned Down $1.9 Million In COVID Relief
"The $1.9 million pandemic aid would have gone a long way in Cochise County, a rural frontier region where a winter of infections has overwhelmed hospitals. There was money for case follow-up. Testing in remote breeding towns. Funds to strengthen the Arizona County Health Department. But the county’s Republican-controlled Board of Overseers stunned many residents and healthcare workers by voting last month to reject federal money, becoming one of the few places in America to deny COVID-19 aid. from Washington. “We’re done,” said Peggy Judd, one of two Republican supervisors who voted against accepting the money. “We treat it like the common cold.”"
