The Virginia attorney general’s office is investigating 2020 election irregularities nearly two years later as the 22-month waiting period required under federal law to preserve election records ends Saturday and state law requires the records to be destroyed after Labor Day.
According to the state attorney general’s office, while there is no evidence of “widespread fraud” that would alter Virginia’s 2020 election results, other election investigations are ongoing, and any irrelevant election data will soon be destroyed.
In an Aug. 24 email obtained by the Prince William County GOP, Senior Assistant Attorney General and Section Chief Josh Lief wrote that “several investigations into election irregularities and election official misconduct” were being conducted and details couldn’t be shared, but he promised “the results will be public in due time.”
“Attorney General Miyares has created an election integrity unit composed of attorneys and investigators that will work closely with law enforcement to ensure that future elections are conducted pursuant to law and at the highest level of integrity,” Lief continued.
