The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors aired its grievances against Arizona Senate Republicans in a special public meeting Monday to respond to claims by Senate President Karen Fann about the board’s noncompliance with the ongoing audit of the 2020 general election.

“We are here under bizarre circumstances,” Chairman Jack Sellers said, repeatedly denouncing and belittling his fellow Republicans and the contractors they hired to run this “grift designed as an audit.”

He complained that the county has better things to do than conduct “on the job training” for Cyber Ninjas, the lead contractor with no previous experience in elections. “The ninjas can’t even find files that were given to them” by the county, and yet they are paid with taxpayer dollars.

“People’s ballots and money are not make believe,” Sellers said. “It’s time to be done with this craziness.” In a press conference following the meeting, he claimed that certified election auditors wouldn’t have asked the questions Cyber Ninjas asked: They aren’t “truly trying to find honest answers.”

Arizona Audit

Officials In Arizona Demand Election Be Decertified

Published

on

The Arizona audit of the 2020 election is getting to the nitty, gritty part and now one Republican is calling for the state’s election results to be decertified.

Liz Harris, a Republican candidate for Arizona representative was on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast and talking about the results she says have been found in the Maricopa County audit.

Harris said that that 96,389 votes came from addresses where the voter could not have possibly cast the ballot.

It is important for us to note that the evidence of these claims has not been produced or verified but it got the attention of Arizona Republican Candidate for Secretary of State Mark Finchem.

“WE MUST AUDIT AND CANVASS EVERYWHERE. This fraud has been going on a lot longer than 2020,” he said on Wednesday.

“I am calling it. Between the preliminary audit results and the private canvass, I call on Arizona to decertify the election of 2020 and recall the electors. There is already enough evidence to show clear and convincing fraud. We have a duty to act,” he said.

“Not only do we need a forensic audit of every county in Arizona, we need an official canvass of the election and of the voter rolls in every county in Arizona. If the DOJ wants to obstruct, they can pound sand,” the candidate said.

“YOU WERE RIGHT! @RudyGiuliani @JennaEllisEsq So glad we gave you the chance to reveal the corruption on Nov 30, ’20 in PHX. We must send a signal to the People of Arizona that we have the courage to decertify an election that is rife with fraud and reclaim the 2020 Electors,” he said.

State Sen. Wendy Rogers made a similar statement on Twitter.

“We need FORENSIC AUDITS, CANVASSES, ARRESTS, and LEGISLATION. Gotta have all four to preserve our elections or we don’t have a country,” she said.

This news comes weeks after the audit review was delayed.

The release of the final report on the audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, was delayed again after three members of the team tested positive for coronavirus.

In a statement announcing the news, Arizona Senate President Karen Fann said she expects the full report to be complete by next Monday.

“The team expected to have the full draft ready for the Senate today, but unfortunately Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan and two other members of the five-person audit team have tested positive for COVID-19 and are quite sick. The Senate legal team will meet Wednesday to start reviewing the draft report,” Fann wrote in her statement.

Before that,  Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward gave an update last week on the election audit in Maricopa County.

“We are being told by the audit team that their report is going to be delivered to the Arizona State Senate, early next week. The State Senate is going to review the results for clarity, and for accuracy, and then they’re going to release the final report to the public. Now, like all of you, I am anxiously awaiting that final report,” she said.

“Now, opponents of the audit are apparently anxious about that report too. They can’t wait. In the last 24 hours Democrat Secretary of State, radical, leftist, progressive, Trump supporter hating Katie Hobbs released what she named a “report on the partisan review of the 2020 general election in Maricopa County”, the media, they dubbed it a prebuttal. In other words, she’s making up stories to misinform and mislead the public, as usual. The ridiculous, ridiculous Maricopa County Recorder, who’s been vocal in his disdain for the audit, put out an open letter to Maricopa County, hilariously pious. Remember, he doesn’t want attention. He wants the office to be boring again, but he did have time to put on makeup and head over to CNN and MSNBC, to avoid any attention. Of course, these fantasies were sent out to their liberal allies in the media and rolled out at the press conference by a supposedly nonpartisan group. I’m sure no sane person read Richard’s 38 Page manifesto and even fewer watched their performance,” Ward said.

“Am I in a time warp here? These opponents are responding to the audit before the report is even been given to the State Senate. Do they have a crystal ball? Can they see into the future? I don’t think so. But what they do have is smoke and mirrors. Hobbs tried to criticize the audit for not having adequate security procedures, but many, many observers praise the audit for how secure it was. It was much greater security than ever existed at the Maricopa County tabulation center. Of course, Hobbs fails to comment on the breach of the Maricopa County election system that occurred shortly before the election. Hey Katie, omissions are also lies,” the chairwoman said.

“The Maricopa county recorders, open letter. Oh, it is as sad, a communication as I’ve ever seen, that has come from an elected official. It’s filled with numerous woe is me anecdotes, and undeserved, unfounded, and even egregious attacks on audit contractors. ironically, there is a section titled, “I was never anti audit.” OMG, he’s a comedian. Actions speak louder than words Stevie. This county recorder has tried to hinder the audit at every step of the way. It’s embarrassing he’s a Republican. Responding ahead of time to a report that has yet to be filed is not responsible governing. These two sets of documents were very, very long, lengthy and they were released at the same time. This is not a response to the audit. It is a naked attempt to control the narrative,” she said.

The audit report is being delivered to the State Senate early next week, & as we await the results, audit opponents are already jumping at the chance to control the narrative. Do not fall for this spin. Tune back in next week as we share the results. #AmericasAudit #ArizonaAudit pic.twitter.com/V3xCPbCbFb

Pennsylvania Senate panel wants citizens to testify if they witnessed election malfeasance

Published

on

Testimony being sought must be firsthand accounts in which the resident witnessed impropriety or directly experienced it themselves.

The Pennsylvania Senate committee tasked with investigating instances of election malfeasance asked residents this week to submit their testimony for its review.

Intergovernmental Operations Committee Chairman Cris Dush, R-Wellsboro, said residents should only submit their stories if they are willing to sign an affidavit and potentially testify under oath, under penalty of perjury, before the panel during forthcoming hearings.

The testimony must also include firsthand accounts in which the resident witnessed impropriety or directly experienced it themselves. The information will “help lawmakers develop potential improvements to state law to bolster election security.”

Dush took over the committee earlier this month after Senate Republican leaders removed former Chairman Doug Mastriano, R-Gettysburg, following an internal battle over the direction of the probe.

Mastriano said Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman, R-Bellefonte, stonewalled the investigation and undermined his efforts to extract information from voting machines in Tioga, York and Philadelphia counties.

Corman said Mastriano acted on his own accord when he sent letters to county commissioners that ultimately prompted the Department of State to threaten to decertify voting equipment should local officials’ comply with the request.

The machines cost millions to replace, commissioners in York and Tioga counties told The Center Square earlier this month.

The Senate leader also denied blocking the investigation or canceling a committee hearing in which members were expected to subpoena the counties for the information.

“If we are going to give Pennsylvanians an election system they can believe in, we need to remove any doubt about whether the system is fair,” Corman said in an Aug. 23 op-ed that reaffirmed his commitment to the forensic audit.

He insisted the Senate’s probe will go “much further” than other state-mandated reviews that have focused more on the accuracy of votes tabulated.

“The goal of the Senate’s investigation will not be to conduct a recount, but to find any flaws in the system that could be exploited by bad actors and take action to correct those flaws through legislative changes to our Election Code,” he said.

Dush said the committee will soon schedule public hearings, create a website that contains updates about the audit and request documents from both counties and the state.

Donald Trump: All U.S. States Should Go to Paper Ballots, Same-Day in-Person Voting, Voter ID

Published

on

By

Former President Donald Trump told Breitbart News that all states should ditch voting machines and return solely to paper ballots, in addition to eliminating early voting and instituting voter ID requirements coast to coast.

Asked during a nearly two-hour interview at his golf club last week what reforms he thinks could fix the system and restore confidence in American elections, Trump listed several things he hopes states will implement to reform the system.

“Voter ID is very important,” Trump told Breitbart News. “Frankly, going to paper ballots is better than anything you can do — paper ballots. Going to paper ballots. You know, Canada uses paper ballots. I think going to paper ballots would be the best thing if you want to have accurate elections. Countries that do paper ballots — solidly watched paper ballots — those are the ones that work. And stop the mail-in ballots unless it’s for military and overseas or very sick people, people that just can’t vote — and they have to have some kind of a real excuse. I think paper ballots, same-day voting would be great. Those things, you’d straighten out your elections.”

Canada does use paper ballots. In fact, late last year in November 2020, Canadian election officials made that clear in a public statement:

Elections Canada does not use Dominion Voting Systems. We use paper ballots counted by hand in front of scrutineers and have never used voting machines or electronic tabulators to count votes in our 100-year history. #CdnPoli pic.twitter.com/dp7ZiB84ql

Trump also said during the interview he is encouraged by some actions taken at the grassroots level to reform elections across the country, particularly in Texas where the state legislature just cleared final hurdles to get a bill through to Gov. Greg Abbott (R) who is expected to sign it soon. Trump, though, had harsh words for Georgia — the state’s new law has been viciously criticized by the left, but Trump thinks it does not go far enough. He said Gov. Brian Kemp (R) weakened the proposal.

“Georgia’s new law is not strong,” Trump said. “Texas’s new law is strong. Georgia’s new law is not strong because the governor of Georgia didn’t want it to be strong. It’s better than it was, but it’s not strong.”

Trump also said that Republicans need to focus not just on the future — 2022, 2024, and beyond — but also on exposing what he says happened last year.

“The single biggest topic for the Republican Party is the voter fraud of 2020 — not 2022, not 2024,” Trump said. “You’ll never get to 2024, you’ll never get to 2022.”

He pointed to various audits from around the country, like in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania as important. But he said the establishment media ignoring voter fraud and election issues make it harder to get his side of the story out.

“Here’s the question. This is a new phenomena. This is what happens with Communism. You can’t have a scandal if nobody writes about it.” Trump said, “Look at what they’re finding in Georgia. Look at what they’re finding in Arizona. I mean, Arizona they want to recheck and double-check — people can’t even believe. Look, that’s being done by the Senate, not by me. But people can’t believe the kinds of numbers coming out. They’re massive. Now, you’re starting in Wisconsin. Now, Pennsylvania is moving because they said, ‘wait a minute.’”

Trump is also watching what is coming out from broader national pushes to investigate what happened last year. Asked about a recent report on a forthcoming investigation from True the Vote — one such election integrity group — that claims it has obtained cell phone GPS ping data from hundreds of alleged “ballot traffickers” who allegedly went to multiple ballot drop boxes in key cities in a number of these swing states multiple times, Trump said he thinks it is a “big deal.”

“This is a big deal. This is a big deal. I know — I’ve been hearing about it,” Trump said of True the Vote’s forthcoming investigation.

The group says it has obtained surveillance video from ballot drop boxes in Georgia to back up its case and those videos will be coming out soon, as Breitbart News has recently reported.

Trump also in the interview cited multiple recent reports from Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) president and general counsel J. Christian Adams, who, using Election Assistance Commission (EAC) government data, reports that 15 million mail ballots nationwide were unaccounted for in the 2020 election.

Trump argued that the sheer volume of the questionable outcome of those ballots Adams discovered using government data is well over the margins of the outcome of the election between him and Biden. “That’s the election right there,” Trump said.

Adams, who joined Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel after the Trump interview this past weekend to explain his report, said 2020 was “the worst way to run an [American] election.”

“This is not data that we are speculating about,” Adams said. “This is federal data, and that’s where we get the 15 million number. Fifteen million ballots were sent in the mail last year that never ever came back and were counted.”

Ken Blackwell, a longtime conservative activist and former mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio, who serves on the board of Adams’s group PILF and also as the chairman of the America First Public Policy Institute’s Center for Election Integrity, told Breitbart News the two groups and others are digging into what happened in 2020.

“In combination, we have shined a light into the dark corners of the 2020 election, and we are going to continue to beat the drum for transparency. And we are going to litigate, and we have a track record of winning,” Blackwell said.

“There were disturbing patterns of irregularities and constitutional transgressions that took place in the 2020 election,” Blackwell added in a phone interview. “One of the things that makes you go ‘huh?’ is that President Trump was the first president to get 11 million more votes in his reelection effort than his first election, and he lost. Joe Biden won the election with a record low percentage of counties in which he won. The voting public is demanding transparency and a deep dive. While there is no constitutional provision that would boot Joe Biden out of office, there is sufficient evidence that a federalized system which is being proposed by the Democrats and the radical left would undermine states’ rights and common-sense practices that tighten the chain of custody of ballots and establish verification systems that make it clear that people are who they purport to be.”

Blackwell also serves as the co-chair of the bipartisan International Foundation for Electoral Systems, which he said gives him unique insight into elections worldwide. “There is not another country in the world that uses mail-in ballots on the scale we did in 2020,” Blackwell said. “To top it off, unlike a couple states in the country that use primarily mail-in ballots, most states don’t have the competency to do it without problems.”

Blackwell said in addition to the fact no other countries use mail-in ballots to the extent the United States did in 2020, “most advise against it.”h

“There is a reason why you have an election day and that is because you have people voting at this same time at the precinct level and that helps with the verification process,” Blackwell said. “The further we get from voting on the same day, the more risk we take on the chain of custody and verification processes. It’s consistent with balloting all over the globe. The same Biden clown car that gave us the Afghanistan mess wants to take control of our elections. That’s what they want to do with federalizing elections.”
