Arizona State Senator Kelly Townsend has filed another 1487 request with the office of Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office, seeking answers to questions raised by the audit in Maricopa County, Arizona.
Brnovich is now obligated to investigate the matter under Arizona state law and if they are found liable, Brnovich is authorized to withhold 10% of the money the county is due in revenue sharing plans.
A previous 14487 request was made earlier by State Senator Sonny Borrelli. Brnovich ruled in Borrelli’s favor, but the country supervisors cut a deal to avoid losing the money.
The same thing is likely to happen this go round again.
In response to Paul @BoyerAZ's ridiculous email claiming everything is settled and there is no fraud, I have filed this 1487 to seek answers to my unanswered questions. Hopefully this is early enough in the day for him on a Monday.https://t.co/TW3Vsg5OUN

VIDEO OF THE DAYIdiots Twerk On Ambulance After Shooting In Oakland, CA
These Maricopa voters cast ballots in Nov 2020 and don’t seem to exist. The ones registered as Democrat or selected with no party affiliation represent a whopping 73.8% of these unknown voters. That’s 63,757 ballots. Not selecting a party makes monitoring of nefarious registrations much harder as everything not R or D is bulked together as “Other”.
Even the new State voter registration form now only has only 3 categories (R, D, Other) and some registration reporting reduced to similar.
Townsend: Today, Senator Paul Boyer sent an email to his colleagues claiming the Audit proved the Joe Biden won, and that if there was any fraud, we would have seen something the first thing this morning. Perhaps this is a little late for him, however I have chosen to submit a 1487 complaint to the Attorney General’s office asking for a formal investigation into the unanswered questions that were raised by the Summer audit preliminary report, as well as last Friday’s final report. Because this is a 1487 request, it is required by law for these questions to be investigated and answered within 30 days. I did ask a multitude of questions, however I believe we already have the answers that were obtained by the audit committee. It should not take the full 30 days, but it if does and takes longer, I will reissue a new 1487 to reset the clock for the more time-consuming issues. I am not satisfied with unanswered questions and unreported issues. I want to know what laws were broken, who broke them, and who will be held accountable.
Please see below a full list of what was asked of the Attorney General today. I look forward to his response.
Appendix ABallot Paper Issues –A.R.S. § 16-468(2) and A.R.S. § 16-502(A).1. It has come to my attention that there may have been multiple types of paper used that were not authorized. Please provide evidence of all of the various papers that were purchased and used from a company that provides such legally authorized paper.2. Who were the suppliers of paper for both Runbeck printed ballots and the day of election ballots of an kind?3. Did Dominion supply any paper for ballots? If so, please provide purchase orders to show where this paper came from and if it met the standards of our statutes.4. At any time did any precinct need to buy paper that ran out on Election Day? If so, which precincts ran out of paper and where did Maricopa County procure additional paper? Who was responsible for supplying that paper and do we have explanation as to why it ran out?5. Maricopa County said they used VoteSecure paper by Roland. Please provide purchase orders and which VoteSecure paper that were used and where.6. If these processes regarding the use of ballot secure paper were not followed correctly and by state law, who would be held accountable for these violations?7. As a member of the Arizona Senate, I received information regarding irregular ballots that were inserted among the other ballots. These ballots were being logged and tracked in an official log book. Please report back how many of these anomalies were found, and what do the logs say about them. Additionally, what were the vote tallies on those ballots?8. In the preliminary report, we received information that the ballots had bled through and caused overvotes, despite the Legislature being told that these issues would not happen due to ballot secure paper that was impermeable from Sharpie ink. Please report back any information obtained regarding the county having ballots that had bleed through and what effect that had on adjudication rate.9. If different types of ballot paper were used for different precincts and voters, and occasionally non ballot secure paper was used creating bleed through and overvote / artifact, leading to adjudication rates being high among some voters and not others, would that constitute an unequal application of policy / election security and a 14th Amendment violation of the voter’s civil rights?Signature / Envelope IssuesA.R.S.16-550(A)1. Did Maricopa County fulfill statutory requirements for signature verification on all counted ballots included in the official canvass?2. Signature issues were reported in the recent Audit conducted by the Senate. They included the following problems:1. Completely blank signature2. Nearly blank signature3. Scribbled signature that did not matchIf there are ballots included in the official canvass that were counted without complying with A.R.S.16-550(A), how many were included that did not meet this legal threshold?3. Who would be responsible for allowing illegal ballots to be counted that did not meet the legal threshold of A.R.S.16-550(A)?4. Ballot envelopes were reported in the audit with a “Verified and approved” stamp appearing BEHIND the envelope graphic of a triangle. How did these images of the verified and approved stamp print from behind the triangle image on the envelope?5. How many of these envelopes with irregular printing of the “verified and approved” or other stamp behind the original graphics of the envelope have been uncovered, and were the ballots contained therein counted in the official canvass?Duplicate ballots1. In the Dr. Shiva presentation of the Arizona audit, it was reported that there were 17,322 duplicate voter envelopes submitted in the final canvass of the election.a. What is the party affiliation of those voters? Can we contact them and ask them who theyvoted for?b. Did they knowingly submit too many ballots and will they be held accountable if so?c.

Who was responsible for removing the duplicates and will they be held accountable?2.There were 255,326 votes mismatched between the VM55 and EV33 files. Which file matched the hand count?3. If it is 255k votes over the hand count, does that match with any of the wrong paper usage?4. If the discrepancy cannot be accounted for, what is the proper and legal course of action?
