The Maricopa County Audit preliminary report has not even been released, but Democrats and the Maricopa RINOs are already bashing it.
Why would they do that?
The wise move is to usually wait to see what comes out so you can decide where to criticize. But, since this is going to be obviously damaging and indefensible that caution is tossed to the wind, and hope misinformation about the audit will convince enough low information voters to give them a fighting chance.
From all indications, there are multiple discrepancies coming out, including the possible fact that Maricopa reported more votes than they had ballots and the possibility that votes were found to have been printed on the wrong paper.
We won’t know for sure about anything until the preliminary report has been released publicly. Many are predicting the report will be a nuclear bomb.
The auditors are still waiting on Maricopa County to comply with Senate subpoenas.
AZGOP Chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward shared a status update on the preliminary draft report.
Ward: The Arizona audit team has delivered a partial report to the Arizona State Senate on the full forensic audit of the Maricopa County 2020 election. Now, there might be a slight delay because three of the five auditors preparing the report for the audit team have come down with COVID. The report is coming though folks.
Now we wish everyone, all of those guys who have COVID a swift recovery, a speedy recovery please please keep them all in your prayers. And also remember that this is only a partial report because the audit team didn’t receive the images of the mail-in ballot envelopes until last Thursday, and they still don’t have the routers, the Splunk logs, or the tokens to enter the machines. There are just under 2 million ballot envelope images that they have got to review to get into the final report. Senate President Karen fan said that the Senate audit and legal team will start reviewing the draft report today for accuracy, for clarity, and to make sure that there is adequate documentation for findings that are included in this report.
The audit opponents of course are out in full force. Now last week two of them held a press conference to refute a report that hadn’t even been filed with the State Senate. It was a prebuttal. Recorder Richer is actually trying to raise money, telling the public how great his predecessor, Adrian Fontas is. I don’t know, is he doing a joint fundraising event with him for Fontes’ run for secretary of state? If Adrian is so fine, why did we need Richard to replace him? just some things to think about. Other jokers are out there and they just keep repeating the same things they’ve said for the last several months, about the county having done two small scale recounts with people involved in choosing the equipment in the first place, and calling those recounts audits. They have nothing to do, absolutely nothing to do with a full forensic audit. I remind you that a full forensic audit of one of our elections has never been done, ever before. This is all unprecedented.
