Voters are demanding a federal investigation into Arizona Democratic Governor-elect Katie Hobbs, who won her race in a bizarre election riddled with problems when she was suspected of acting suspiciously in her capacity as the state’s top election official at the time, and internal Twitter emails have recently been released showing that her corrupt actions to steal an election did not end at the ballot box.
“The emails, which were released as part of the “Twitter files” by new CEO Elon Musk, appear to indicate that Hobbs, who served as the state’s secretary of state at the time, emailed Twitter staffers in Jan. 2021 to have accounts blocked that she claimed contained so-called election misinformation,” Martin Walsh reported for Conservative Brief.
Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted on the incident: “The SOS of AZ and Gov candidate, Katie Hobbs, used the power of the AZ SOS to collude w/ Twitter to unconstitutionally violate 1st Amendment rights of Americans for her own political gain. This is communism and Hobbs can not be governor. I’m calling for a Federal investigation.”
Christina Bobb, a former attorney for President Donald Trump, posted a screenshot of the page in Schmitt’s discovery file on Twitter.
Walsh recounted in further detail:
The Republican Party of Arizona tweeted: “@GeneralBrnovich we hope you are taking a serious look into @SecretaryHobbs At a minimum, Arizonans deserve to know what accounts/tweets were censored. The First Amendment was created to protect citizens against the government, Not the other way around.”
“BREAKING: Email leaks reveal Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs was in regular communication with Twitter telling them who to censor,” George (@BehizyTweets)posted on Twitter on December 4, 2022.

The internal Twitter emails demonstrate, according to sources, that Hobbs’ team reportedly met with former Twitter employees and management to identify certain users and accounts.
The shocking discovery follows Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s disclosure last week, via writer Matt Taibbi, of internal corporate messages indicating the site collaborated with the Democratic Party to suppress conservatives.
The Daily Wire reports:
According to an email on January 7, 2021, the communications director for Hobbs’ Secretary of State office emailed the Center for Internet Security (CIS), a 501 nonprofit cybersecurity organization, saying they are “flagging” an unidentified Twitter profile for review under the subject line titled “Election Related Misinformation.” The email also included an unknown employee at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, a branch under the federal government’s Department of Homeland Security.
A CIS representative forwarded the message to a Twitter staffer saying, “Please see this report below from the Arizona SOS office. Please let me know if you have any questions.”
The Twitter employee then responded in another email: “Thank you … both tweets have been removed from the service.”

It does appear that Twitter worked with both Republicans and Democrats at the time on looking into tweets that may have been an issue on the platform.
