Maricopa County is DONE with the audit

What the headline means is not that it's over, it's that Maricopa County is no longer willing to cooperate.

[www.washingtonpost.com]

Elected leaders in Arizona’s largest county responded defiantly Monday to a new subpoena issued by the state Senate that sought local computer routers and internal logs to bolster a GOP-commissioned review of the 2020 presidential election results.

Senate President Karen Fann (R) has said the items are needed to conclude the controversial audit of the election in Maricopa County, which private contractors have been conducting on behalf of the Senate since April.

County officials rejected her claim in a scathing letter.

“It is now August of 2021. The election of November 2020 is over. If you haven’t figured out that the election in Maricopa County was free, fair, and accurate yet, I’m not sure you ever will,” Board of Supervisors Chairman Jack Sellers (R) wrote in a letter to the Senate on Monday.

He added: “The Board has real work to do and little time to entertain this adventure in never-never land. Please finish whatever it is that you are doing and release whatever it is you are going to release.”


btw, I read on twitter weeks ago that the new plan was to continue to make more demands on Maricopa County to the point where they balk and at that point the 'investigators' will claim that Maricopa County is blocking the investigation - there must be SOMETHING that they are hiding, but unfortunately, we no longer have access.

Gotta keep that money flowing to the ‘auditors.’

But of course. Just keep piling on unreasonable demands since the underlying premise is not only a lie but one without end. This ticks boxes for Trumpers who need to be eternally victimized while never finding what isn’t there to begin with.

Anyone know if the Cyber Ninja's contract was flat rate or hourly?

Apparently they want the routers to get the router logs to see if the voting machines were ever connected to the internet, since Italy (!) changed votes from Trump to Biden (for umm…reasons).

Problem is, giving them all the routers means they’d have to replace them all, at a cost of some millions. But it would be money well spent if Cyber Ninjas couldn’t find evidence of this particular conspiracy…That would certainly satisfy the tin-foil-hat-Q-brigades, right?

I hope that after all is said and done, Maricopa County sues their ass and puts them out of biz.

It’s by the votes switched from Biden to Trump. Big payday coming!

BTW, I missed posting this story:

'Botched': Arizona GOP's ballot count ends, troubles persist

“Not even a shred of being salvaged at this point,” said Sen. Paul Boyer, the first Republican state senator to publicly come out against the audit in May. “They’ve botched it at so many points along the way that it's irrecoverable.”

Honestly, these things are really more like Kabuki theater for the deplorables. It doesn’t have to be done well; it doesn’t even need to make any sense. They’ll do what they do, and say what they say, and in the end it’ll just be another piece of wingnutty MAGA fantasy that only they believe.

You mean Fraudit.

Fraudit - (noun) An audit conducted for the sole purpose of being able to say, "Well, there's an audit, so there must be fraud, even though we can't find any evidence of it whatsoever."

I truly miss butterfly ballots.

Yeah, but his black greasy sweat stains on the ballots will cause even more controversy.

Sometimes, you have to forego the "Bless your heart!" and say, "You are an idiot."
