Soros spent $2 million for Maricopa sheriff now blocking audit

• The BL

The Maricopa County Sheriff seeking to obstruct the 2020 election audit has been in office for more than four years.

To achieve his victory over Republican Joe Arpaio, Paul Penzone had a crucial supporter: progressive speculator George Soros donated $2 million to help the then-Democratic candidate prevail as Maricopa sheriff.

To beat Arpaio, a historic Maricopa sheriff known for his tough stance on illegal immigration, Democrat Penzone received the largest donation made by George Soros in the 2016 election cycle.

In addition, Penzone received another $250,000 from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs' widow, Laurene Powell Jobs.
