Conspiracy-promoting sheriffs claim broad electoral authority

The sheriff of Kansas’ most populous county says he took it for granted that local elections were going smoothly – until former President Donald Trump lost there in 2020. Now he has tasked detectives with investigating what he claims is voter fraud, although there has been no evidence of any widespread fraud or manipulation of voting machines in 2020. Calvin Hayden in Johnson County, which covers suburban Kansas City isn’t the only sheriff in the United States trying to give his office a bigger role in election investigations.
