What does the Maricopa Board of Elections fear the auditors are going to find hidden among the ballots? Whatever it is, it must be pretty bad considering they are going all out to keep it hidden. They have been fighting tooth and nail against the audit of their ballots amid concerns about how the ballots were counted. They have now sicced lawyers on the people who will be auditing the votes. Joe Biden is the first Democrat to win the county in 72 years.
It is especially curious inasmuch as Biden and Harris were unable to fill an event in Arizona where they only needed two dozen people to show up. That does not shout out voter enthusiasm. Maybe it was legitimate but if it was, why would they be fighting so hard against the audit? If it was legitimate, they should want an audit to prove the vote count was correct. I know most people would. Erase all doubt.
News12 in Phoenix reported this morning:
Arizona Senate Republicans’ plans to recount Maricopa County’s 2020 presidential vote face a new legal challenge.
In a letter emailed Tuesday to the Senate’s hired auditors, attorneys for the non-profit voting-rights group Protect Democracy and three Phoenix firms warn that the auditors’ plan to knock on doors to search for voters likely violates state and federal law.
The lawyers say lawsuits could follow if the audit proceeds as planned.
“These tactics – no matter their intent – constitute illegal voter intimidation and might expose your companies to both civil and criminal penalties,” according to the letter to the four firms working on the audit.
The Democrats are doing all they can to stop the audit in the county for months. They sued the Senate. They took the Senate to Court. They forced the Senate to update the law to address crazy accusations by the county. They selected their own auditors to audit the county, claiming they were certified when they were not.
Then when the Senate decides to go with their own auditors, the County Board of Supervisors unilaterally loaded the ballots up on a truck and drove them around the city. This was likely totally illegal.
One thing is clear – the Democrat Party, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, and now some legal firms are doing all they can to prevent an accurate counting of legitimate ballots in the county.
