PHOENIX — Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer is asking Attorney General Mark Brnovich to investigate after voter registration records were posted online.
Voter registration records known as the “voter file” are available to the public, but it’s a felony to post the information on the Internet.
Richer said in a statement Thursday that he trusts Brnovich to look into the issue and take any necessary action.
He did not name the group responsible, but an expansive list of voters was accessible Thursday afternoon on a website posting podcasts, articles, and other materials in support of the Republican Party.
The website www.mandaringop.com registered through GoDaddy has privacy set so the owner and source is not publicly available. Since we originally viewed this data at www.mandaringop.com/arizona/vm51b-voter.php?operation=printpage&page=4 the information is no longer viewable. The site home page was entirely in what appeared to be Chinese with some English to search for data sought. It appeared the dat for Maricopa county was greater than 12k pages. Multiple other counties and states data was also published.
At COC2020 we wonder if this was acquired during the reported hacking of the Maricopa County Elections office database or perhaps during the period in which there is suspicion of back end voter fraud?
