The historic audit of the 2020 election results in Maricopa County, Arizona will pause for at least a week to allow for several high school graduations to take place in the facility in which the audit is occurring.
The audit is taking place in Phoenix’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The ballots and other election material have since been moved to a nearby warehouse to allow for around a dozen high school graduations to commence in the coliseum.
The ballots will be stored in “locked container with 24/7 armed guards, fencing and 24/7 livestreaming cameras,” state Senate liaison Ken Bennett told CNN.
Wisconsin is officially auditing the results of the 2020 Election, with the official announcement coming today according to Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson.
Robinson announced on Twitter, “The state of Wisconsin authorized an audit of the 2020 election!”
The official audit was ordered almost three months ago by Republicans in the State Legislature, according to Newsweek. The Joint Legislative Audit Committee voted to order the audit along party lines. The audit will be run by a non-partisan body.
The Republican-led Arizona state Senate audit of the 2020 election in the state’s most populous county will have to be paused on Friday because the firms conducting the review of ballots must clear the facility being used so that high school graduations can take place in the venue.
Despite prior multiple state audits that found no issues of concern in the 2020 election, the Arizona Senate ordered another review, taking possession of Maricopa County’s nearly 2.1 million ballots and almost 400 election machines by subpoena earlier this year. The audit is being run by companies that include one whose CEO promoted debunked election fraud theories after the election.
On Thursday, Dominion Voting Systems released a shocking statement where they said they would not be complying with the Maricopa County election audit.
Earlier this week, OAN reported that Dominion was refusing to comply with the subpoena to provide the passwords to their systems. WHAT ARE THEY HIDING? Dominion later confirmed this reporting when they released the following statement:
Former GOP candidate Matt McCall called for audits “everywhere”. Matt McCall ran in 2018 in Texas CD 21.
He ran against Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX).
Rep. Chip Roy spoke out against the GOP’s efforts to look into the fraud in the 2020 election. Roy even said that he would’ve voted to impeach Trump if the Democrats drafted different articles of impeachment.
Dominion Voting Systems and Maricopa County officials are refusing to hand over passwords for election machines to auditors in Arizona.
Dominion said in a statement to news outlets on Thursday that it would comply with the audit, but Cyber Ninjas, the firm hired by the Arizona Senate to conduct it along with three other companies, is not accredited by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.
“Releasing Dominion’s intellectual property to an unaccredited, biased, and plainly unreliable actor such as Cyber Ninjas would be reckless, causing irreparable damage to the commercial interests of the company and the election security interests of the country,” Dominion said. “No company should be compelled to participate in such an irresponsible act.”
On Thursday evening, AZ Republican Senate President Karen Fann sent a letter to Maricopa County officials to inform them of three key findings in their ongoing audit of the November 2020 election that Democrats claimed was “the safest and most secure election in history.”
In Senator Fann’s letter to the Maricopa Board of Supervisors, she outlined the 3 critical issues with the Arizona election audit (so far):
Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann in a letter to Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chair Jack Sellers regarding the the Senate’s audit of the 2020 general election said that material has been deleted, the county has failed to comply with subpoenas and there have been other issues like the county’s failure to supply any ballot chain-of-custody information.
“The first issue concerns Maricopa County’s apparent intent to renege on its previous commitment to comply fully with the legislative subpoenas issued on January 13, 2021, which, as you know, Judge Thomason found were valid and enforceable,” Fann wrote. “As the audit has progressed, the Senate’s contractors have become aware of apparent omissions, inconsistencies, and anomalies relating to Maricopa County’s handling, organization, and storage of ballots,” she also noted.”We have recently discovered that the entire “Database” directory from the D drive of the machine ‘EMSPrimary’ has been deleted. This removes election related details that appear to have been covered by the subpoena.
Failed Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is obviously panicking over the Arizona election audit.
During an interview Thursday night on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Abrams claimed the Arizona recount of 2020 ballots was “a continuation of the insurrection.”
Cooper asked, “First on the news, given all your work on voting rights, when you see this so-called audit in Arizona with cell phone jammers and UV lights, and conspiracy theories about bamboo ballots brought in from Asia, what is happening there?”
On Thursday, Dominion stated they “voluntarily supply access to their election equipment only to vendors accredited by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC). We happily did so for the accredited providers (vendors) that Maricopa hired for auditing”. However, this is not true. According to audit vendor Pro V&V, Dominion Voting Systems (DVS) provided passwords directly to Maricopa Board of Election employees. And those employees logged into the equipment themselves, allowing auditors system access.
The Arizona Senate asked the County for Admin User level access. Pro V&V President Jack Cobb stated: “The Admin User and password have GOD powers. Note the Antrim County Michigan hack – where someone had Admin User and password access, and with that you can do anything. All databases in all industries need this function.
