Arizona GOP Must Pay $18,000 In Legal Fees For Failed Election Lawsuit

A state court in Arizona ordered state’s Republican Party to pay more than $18,000 in legal fees to Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs for an unsuccessful lawsuit that sought a second hand count of election results in the state, the latest instance of Trump allies now facing consequences for their failed legal campaign challenging Joe Biden’s victory in battleground states.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John R. Hannah, Jr., ordered the Arizona GOP and other plaintiffs to pay $18,237.59 in legal fees to Hobbs as the secretary of state had requested, finding the amount “reasonable and appropriate.”

The court had already dismissed the Republican lawsuit—which requested a hand count of certain ballots in Maricopa County for a second time, believing the first time was not done in proper accordance with state rules—ruling elections officials had “followed the Elections Procedures Manual to the letter” and not done anything wrong.

1. There were 60+ BS Republican legal filings.....

I hope every state files suit to recover costs.... Repubs should be on the hook for every one of these frivolous lawsuits.
