From Brahm Resnik of KPNX NBC 12 Phoenix: “BREAKING: Maricopa County Board settles with Senate GOP over subpoena for computer routers. County faced loss of hundreds of millions in revenue after GOP AG Brnovich ruled subpoena was valid. Details coming in:
- Senate drops subpoena but won’t get routers.
- Maricopa County will eat the $2.8 million it spent to replace ballot-counting machines it said were irreparably damaged by Senate contractors. County had filed notice of claim with senate to obtain payment for machines.
- A ‘special master’ – former GOP Congressman John Shadegg – appointed to oversee router review w tech experts, to answer Senate GOP questions.
“County Board votes 4-1, along party lines, to approve settlement. (Dem Steve Gallardo a ‘no’). ONE OTHER THING: Senate President Fann writes letter to AG Brnovich telling him to call off the dogs.”
