Arizona’s governor hasn’t been ‘indicted’ by the state senate, contrary to viral claim

Social media users are falsely claiming that Arizona’s governor has been “indicted” by local lawmakers. Here are the facts:

CLAIM: Gov. Katie Hobbs has been indicted on racketeering conspiracy charges by the state senate.

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The Republican leadership in Arizona’s state Senate say no such indictment has been issued, and the state legislature isn’t authorized to issue such formal accusations of criminal wrongdoing.
