The former Election Integrity Unit civil attorney for the Arizona Attorney General’s Office is making it clear she does not believe the new attorney general is rightfully in office. Jennifer Wright – who resigned before Democrat Kris Mayes took office, but who Mayes’ office claimed was fired to journalists, causing Wright to start the process for a libel lawsuit – has joined the legal team of Mayes’ opponent, Republican Abe Hamadeh, who is challenging the results of the extremely close election.
Wright tweeted that she initially turned down Hamadeh’s offer but changed her mind “after @krismayes targeted me by falsely and unlawfully planting a hit on me on @azcentral.” She said “it became clear that left unchecked, the new admin intended to abuse their power.”
@AbrahamHamadeh initially asked me to join his team upon my resignation. Exhausted, and knowing he has excellent legal counsel, I initially declined to take a significant role.

Wright said in a statement released by the Hamadeh campaign on Tuesday, “Not only do I believe Abe is right, but I also believe that he will be successful in his election contest and that is why I have joined this fight. The evidence is clear coming out of Pinal County – Katie Hobbs and her attorneys were hiding evidence. … I look forward to getting Kris Mayes out of the office she should have never occupied in the first place,” said Wright.
