Think Tank sits down with Maricopa County Recorder Richer
Stephen Richer was elected to a relatively low-profile office in 2020, Maricopa County recorder. He immediately was thrust into the midst of a national controversy concerning the legitimacy of the 2020 election.
His analysis (essentially, “the election was honest and accurate”) broke with the view publicly expressed by “Stop the steal” activists within the Republican Party.
He was attacked by them on social media and was personally threatened.
We’ve invited him to join in the Think Tank to discuss his thoughtful 37-page analysis of the 2020 election, the county’s election procedures and process, and the behavior and qualifications of the Cyber Ninjas who were hired by the Arizona Senate to conduct an “audit.”
I have read this document. Twice, actually. And I commend it to anyone with a serious interest in the issues that have been raised concerning the 2020 election – it is thoughtful and thorough and fact-based.
But few will wade through a 37-page document, so we invited Richer to discuss what he said on the Think Tank. We will discuss:
1. Richer’s Republican and conservative credentials.
2. What the county did to run the 2020 election, processes, post-elections audits and checks, etc.
3. What Cyber Ninjas have done in the course of their “audit.”
4. The attacks on him and others in his office as a result of his stand.
5. Implications for democracy.
Richer is our sole guest in this week’s Think Tank.
The Think Tank airs on KTAR 92.3 FM on Saturday 6-7 p.m. and Sundays 9-10 p.m.
Podcasts are available after broadcast.
