Pro-Trump group sends fake documents in attempt to reassign Arizona's electoral votes - 2020-12-14
Before President-elect Joe Biden was declared the winner of the electoral college vote on Monday, some Arizona residents sent their own unsanctioned electoral votes for President Donald Trump to the National Archives this month.
According to the Arizona Republic, individuals associated with a group called "AZ Protect the Vote" turned in signed notarized documents which purported to allot Arizona's 11 electoral votes to Trump. Electors actually appointed by the Arizona state legislature cast their votes for Biden on Monday. Trump has baselessly claimed that the 2020 election was riddled with voter fraud which would make Biden's victory invalid.
"We seated before the legislators here," said Lori Osiecki, who helped craft the false certificate. "We already turned it in. We beat them to the game."
