GOP election official in the Arizona county targeted by ballot recount called Trump 'unhinged' and said 'we can't indulge these insane lies'
  • GOP election official Stephen Richer called Trump "unhinged" over claims about the election.
  • Richer leads the elections department in Maricopa County, where a GOP-backed recount is taking place.
  • "We can't indulge these insane lies any longer. As a party. As a state. As a country," he said.
The Republican official in charge of the elections department in the Arizona county where a GOP-backed recount of the election is taking place lashed out at former president Donald Trump on Saturday.

Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer took to Twitter to refute a statement in which Trump repeated unsubstantiated claims about the election and claimed, without evidence, that the "entire Database of Maricopa County in Arizona has been DELETED!"

"This is illegal and the Arizona State Senate, who is leading the Forensic Audit, is up in arms," Trump said.

Richer tweeted the statement, calling it "as readily falsifiable as 2+2=5."

"Wow. This is unhinged. I'm literally looking at our voter registration database on my other screen. Right now," he wrote. "We can't indulge these insane lies any longer. As a party. As a state. As a country."
