PRESS RELEASE: House Democrats respond to grand jury indictments of fake electors, including two sitting Senators


April 25, 2024

PHOENIX – Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes announced on Wednesday that a State Grand Jury had delivered multiple criminal felony indictments against 11 Republican fake electors – including Arizona State Senators Anthony Kern and Jake Hoffman-- and seven aides to Donald Trump in an illegal scheme to overturn the 2020 election. House Democratic Leader Lupe Contreras released the following statement in response to the indictments:


"The 2020 election was free and fair, and won squarely by President Joe Biden. The effort to send fake alternative electors to Washington D.C. in the midst of an orchestrated and violent insurrection was a desperate, shameful and blatantly illegal attempt to hold onto power despite the will of the American people. An empaneled Grand Jury of Arizona citizens agreed with this assessment, and we appreciate Attorney General Kris Mayes for bringing forward these indictments and for her efforts to hold accountable those who would illegally undermine our democracy and American institutions. It's disappointing, but not surprising, that two of those indicted are currently serving in the Arizona Senate. If they had any integrity, they would resign immediately."
