GOP-controlled board votes to certify results from Maricopa County, Arizona (And Joe Biden has G. Gordon Liddy’s son to thank)
Breaking news out of Arizona where we’re reading that the state’s largest county, Maricopa, voted unanimously to certify the election results:

There it is. With a unanimous vote, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has certified its election results.

For almost 3 hours, the four Republicans and one Democrat went through the elections process in excruciating detail and vouched for its integrity.

It’s a GOP-controlled board, too:

“It’s time to dial back the rhetoric, conspiracies and false claims,” said the Republican chairman of the election board:

“It’s time to dial back the rhetoric, conspiracies and false claims,” said Clint Hickman, a Republican and chairman of the Maricopa County board.

The certification came shortly after the last pending court case was dismissed:

The county was the key to Biden’s victory in the state:

NOTED Joe Biden wouldn’t have won Arizona without Maricopa County. He’s first Democrat in 72 years – since Harry Truman in ’48 – to take Maricopa.
