Arizona: Four Maricopa County Board of Supervisors facing recall effort

Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Clint Hickman (R), Vice Chair Jack Sellers (R) and Supervisors Bill Gates (R) and Steve Gallardo (D) are facing recall efforts after voting 4-1 to ignore subpoenas issued by the  head of the state Senate's Judiciary Committee, Senator Eddie Farnsworth (R) looking for an audit of the county's election software. The Supervisors instead filed a suit to see if the subpoenas were legal, as there are questions of whether it would illegally expose private information about voters. 

It is unclear if the the fifth Supervisor (who voted against), Steve Churci (R), will also face a recall effort.

Former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora (R) said he will be looking into working with a recall effort as he resigned his position early. Flora lost his job in a primary to State Representative John Allen, but was supposed to stay in the position until January 11, when Allen's term expired.
