Katie Hobbs, the secretary of the state of Arizona, will now be extended protection from the department of public safety of the state of Arizona. This takes place following the death threats she has been receiving on a constant basis due to the ongoing audit of the election in the county of Maricopa.
The 51-year-old political and social worker from the Democratic party was one of the opponents who advocated against the audit. The audit was demanded by the state senators belonging to the Republican party. It began to take place in the month of April even after the fact that two audits have already taken place prior to this. It is being conducted by the election officials in charge. In the previous audits, no such evidence was found with regard to the issues of fraud or any such irregularities.
