GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik joined Maria Bartiromo on FOX News Sunday this morning. This was her first interview with Maria since she was elected by House members on Friday to replace bitter Never-Trumper Liz Cheney in the position.
During their discussion, Bartiromo asked Stefanik about her support for the ongoing Arizona Senate audit of the Maricopa County election. This was a bold question by Maria on a network that shuns discussing election fraud in the November 2020 election.
Rep. Stefanik said she believed what the Biden administration was doing to block the audit was unconstitutional. (For the record – So was stealing the election!)
Rep. Elise Stefanik: I support that audit. Transparency is good for the American people. And again, this should be a non-partisan issue, whether you are Republican, Democrat, Independent or conservative transparency is important. And the audit was passed by the Arizona State Senate. The Biden Department of Justice is trying to block that audit. That is unconstitutional from my perspective. Our states, constitutionally, are responsible for writing states constitution law.
It was refreshing seeing a GOP representative speaking out on Arizona. That never used to happen. It still rarely happens. The GOP is so out-of-touch with their voters that this little remark by Stefanik sticks out.
