Members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in a Monday meeting called on fellow members of the GOP and business leaders to speak out against an unprecedented partisan audit of the county's election results.

Last week, Senate President Karen Fann sent a letter questioning records that document the chain of custody of the ballots and accusing county officials of deleting data.

The GOP-dominated Board denied wrongdoing and said allegations of wrongdoing reflect a lack of understanding of election procedures.
