Senate squabble over early voting bill: 'I can show you a temper tantrum'

Sen. Kelly Townsend (R-Mesa), front, said she could not provide the required 16th vote in the 30-member Senate because she does not think it goes far enough. Townsend, a vocal proponent of theories of how the last election was fraudulent, said she wants more fixes, including ones that she proposed but that never got to the Senate floor. That refusal resulted in Sen. Michelle Ugenti-Rita, R-Scottsdale, in back, the sponsor of the bill, saying Townsend was throwing a "temper tantrum." Courtesy of Arizona Legislature
