In California, the “big lie” that fueled the January 6 U.S. Capitol insurrection — that Trump actually won the November election — continues to fester. After Arizona Republican lawmakers pushed for an audit of ballots in Maricopa County, a similar move is now supported in San Luis Obispo County, California. Earlier this month, a Board of Supervisors meeting was overrun by nearly 100 people who questioned election results and demanded a forensic audit.
