TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - According to AZ Central [and other sources], former President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign reported paying thousands of dollars to a business owned by Rep. Mark Finchem to overturn President Joe Biden’s election win.

The source says during a financial disclosure, a $6,000 expense for Dec. 18, 2020 was labeled as “recount: legal consulting.”

However, Rep. Finchem told news sources that the payment reimbursed crowd control and security costs at a meeting that took place on Nov. 20 at a downtown Phoenix hotel with Rudy Giuliani, Republican legislators, and other supporters in favor of overturning the presidential results.
