Arizona GOP Attorney General Mark Brnovich has slammed election deniers, including his state’s Republican gubernatorial candidate, Kari Lake, for allegations of voter fraud.
Brnovich spoke to “60 Minutes” correspondent Scott Pelley about what he called “bullshit” claims about the 2020 presidential election in an interview that aired Sunday.
Brnovich, who reportedly voted for election denier and former President Donald Trump, pondered Trump’s call and asked him to call the 2020 election fraudulent.
His interview comes months after he lost a GOP primary for a U.S. Senate seat in Arizona to Blake Masters, a Trump-endorsed Republican, as he faced criticism from the former president for not rescinding election results.
The attorney general, who has investigated allegations of voter fraud in the state, is expected to step down in 2023 and has not held back on what he thinks of state Republicans and their claims about the election.
“Horse shit, and it is, most of it is horse shit, and I’ve been trying to scratch…scratch my shoes since last year,” Brnovich said.
Brnovich claimed there was no one else in the United States who wanted to find fraud more than he did and, as 60 Minutes noted, he brought “indictments in every case.” of voter fraud in 2020 that he can support with evidence”.
That effort, according to the news program, amounts to the indictment of 12 people involving 12 polls throughout Arizona.
Brnovich, in response to a claim by Arizona secretary of state nominee Mark Finchem, later said he was dealing with facts and evidence as a prosecutor.
“And I’m not like the clowns who throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks,” Brnovich said before a clip of Lake denying the 2020 election result aired. “It’s like a scam giant in some ways.”
