State Sen. Michelle Ugenti-Rita was booed off the stage as she started to make her pitch for Arizona Secretary of State. “Listen up!” she said, as the crowd noise began to rise.
They didn’t. As she tried to plow through her stump speech, the cries of disapproval continued. She finally gave up, leaving the stage after telling the crowd that she will win the race.
Michelle Ugenti-Rita (R) is accused of watering down the election integrity bill in Arizona.
She refused to support SB1241 which contained over 34 election integrity measures.
Republican Arizona Senator Michelle Ugenti-Rita has killed an election integrity bill put forward by fellow State Senator Kelly Townsend, who plans to reconsider it.
SB1241, which was set for its third reading in the Senate on Tuesday, contained over 34 various election integrity measures, including: requiring paper ballot copies for every vote cast on a voting machine, securing those machines and hard drives outside of voting hours, sending ballots with mismatched signatures to the Attorney General for potential investigation, requiring ballot observers to be able to see the voting machines, increasing chain of custody requirements, and forcing anyone registering in Arizona who moved from another state to deregister from their previous state.
However, Republican Senator Michelle Ugenti-Rita, announced that she would join the Democrats in voting against the election integrity bill, which Townsend implied was revenge for her own vote against Ugenti-Rita’s SB1485. Although SB1485 included some election integrity measures, it would not have applied key revisions in time for the 2022 primaries, leaving them open to the same potential attacks that may have occurred in the 2020 election.
Much of the provisions included in the final version of SB1241 were tacked onto the bill when it went through the House, after Ugenti-Rita refused to allow Townsend to hear the issues in the Government Committee that she chaired. When it came to voting, Ugenti-Rita objected exactly because of the methodology Townsend used to get the issues into the bills, despite the fact it was her own tactics had seemingly forced her to do.
