Arizona’s Senate, where the GOP holds a 16 to 14 majority, is considering launching a second forensic audit of the 2020 election results in Maricopa County, in addition to the present audit which is ongoing in Arizona’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix.
The rationale for signing a deal for another review of the ballots cast in Maricopa County in 2020 would be to supplement and verify the results from the first audit, according to a report by the Washington Examiner.
However, it also comes among reports that some of the overseers participating in the current audit were not satisfied with the process.
The ongoing forensic audit provides for reviewing a total of 2.1 million votes cast in Arizona during the November 2020 election.
The audit led by the Cyber Ninjas firm at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum began on April 23, 2021.
Ex-Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who is audit liaison, has told CBS5 News the hand counters had already gone through some 800,000 ballots, with hopes that the entire audit would be finished by the end of June.
However, according to the Arizona Republic, the second recount considered by the Republican majority in Arizona’s Senate would be fully electronic.
It would be running digital images of ballots through a vote-counting program and include all votes in any race cast in the 2020 election in the county.
According to Bennett, the Arizona Senate is considering hiring “Citizens Oversight”, an election transparency nonprofit group based in California.
It is noted that reports of overseers from the current audit being unhappy with the process haven’t really surfaced.
Instead, it is more likely that the second audit is being considered as a means of confirming the results that will be presented by Cyber Ninjas, and which are guaranteed to be criticized by the Democrats anyway.
The second audit could change it all
Therefore, a second audit could add tremendously to the credibility of the audit results, preemptively shutting the mouth of the Democrats.
A second audit would probably inspect all election races in the Arizona county in 2020, besides those for the US president and the Senate, which are being audited at present.
A decision in favor of launching a backup audit could also be construed as evidence that fraudulent ballots would be discovered, and such revelation would likely overturn the state’s 2020 election result.
Thus, if the audit to date had found no discrepancies with the final results certified by Arizona’s notorious Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, the state’s Senate Republicans wouldn’t bother with another audit.
The Gateway Pundit journalist Joe Hoft reminds us that the Board of Supervisors of Maricopa County had hired two audit firms for a total of over $100,000, and none of those ever took a look at any ballots.
Instead, both of them looked only at some voting machines, took them apart, and declared that the county’s 2020 election results were accurate.
The launching of a second forensic audit in Maricopa County would be a very shrewd move by the Senate Republicans in Arizona, and it could prove to be the group to save this country.
