Rae Chornenky, the GOP Chair for Maricopa County, Arizona, has stepped down from her post after it was revealed she failed to sign the Certificate of Accuracy for voting machines in her county.
I formally & publicly call on Rae Chornenky & 1st Vice Chair Linda Brickman (who should have been there in her stead if she could not make it) to resign effective immediately. This is 100% unacceptable & has contributed to the collapse of Arizona voter confidence. @ChornenkyRae pic.twitter.com/WoXFMQkz9s

I’ll tell you what, I’ll resign when you sprout even an ounce of integrity and obtain the intelligence to check your facts before spreading filth about a person whom you don’t know on a topic about which you have not the slightest clue.

I wish to thank Rae Chornenky for doing the right thing and stepping down as Chair, and I place my full support behind the wishes/decisions of the full membership of the MCRC on how they decide to move forward.@ChornenkyRae

Maricopa County is one of the most hotly-contested counties in the country, with ballots still be counted today.
The Certificate of Accuracy certifies that voting machines have been tested for accuracy prior to an election. Chornenky failed to sign the document. It was signed only by Democrats and representatives from the Arizona Secretary of State’s office.
