Mark Finchem says Big Mediaâ€™s meltdown over the Maricopa County election audit is the worst heâ€™s seen since Chernobyl.
â€œThe fact that Politico has gone into pure meltdown, theyâ€™re either afraid of what they donâ€™t know, or theyâ€™re afraid of what they know,â€ he said.
Finchem reacted to the Politico screed against patriotic Americans who are running for secretary of state to fix the disasters that happened on Nov. 3 and the days that followed.
Finchem said the people of Arizona and every other state have the right to take a closer look at their elections.
â€œItâ€™s not [board of supervisor] Bill Gateâ€™s election,â€ Finchem said. â€œThis is not Politicoâ€™s election. This is the peopleâ€™s election.â€
â€œThey have every right to scrutinize everything that they have a question about,â€ he said.
