Maricopa County is once again trying to discredit the ongoing audit, this time sending out a tweet questioning the funding behind the investigation.

Attempts to Stop the Audit

The audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, Arizona is still underway, and the left is trying desperately to discredit it. From the mainstream media smears to the county’s refusal to comply with subpoenas, their blatant refusal to allow transparency in the election process has been broadcasted for the whole world to see, yet they face no consequences.

Regardless of whether the fraud exists or not, the narrative that an audit is a bad idea is ridiculous. If the GOP is wrong, and the election was conducted perfectly, the audit will show that. If the Democrats are so innocent, why are they working so hard to stop any investigation into 2020?

Tweet

The latest attempt to discredit the audit was broadcast in a tweet from Maricopa County’s official Twitter account.

“#RealAuditorsDont take a dollar much less $5.7 million to chase debunked conspiracies and discredit hard-working public servants with false claims about phantom ballots and deleted files,” the first tweet read.

Debunking Claims

Right away, the first part of the statement is confusing.

“#RealAuditorsDont take a dollar much less $5.7 million”?

What kind of auditor/auditing company doesn’t work for pay? What auditor would choose to spend days, weeks, or even months meticulously going through evidence for free? This statement by Maricopa County is just hyperbolic nonsense.

Next, the assertion about “debunked conspiracy theories” and “false claims about phantom ballots and deleted files.”

During the Arizona Senate hearing regarding the audit’s findings so far, The GOP Times previously reported that:

  • 3,981 people voted even though they did not register to vote until after the October 15th deadline.
  • 11,326 people voted who were not on the voter rolls on November 7, but were added to the rolls on December 4, after the election.
  • 18,000 people voted and then had their names mysteriously removed from the voter rolls after the election.
  • 74,243 mail-in ballots were counted, despite there being no record of them ever being sent.

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann wrote a letter to Chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Jack Sellers about the deleted files that the county is tweeting about, calling a false claim. The letter states:

“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. In addition, the main database for the Election Management System (EMS) Software, ‘Results Tally and Reporting,’ is not located anywhere on the EMSPrimary machine, even though all of the EMS Clients reference that machine as the location of the database. This suggests that the main database for all election related data for the November 2020 General Election has been removed. Can you please advise as to why these folders were deleted, and whether there are any backups that may contain the deleted folders?”

If the audit provided evidence that all of these irregularities occurred, how are they “debunked conspiracy theories” and “false claims about phantom ballots and deleted files”?

Second Tweet

In a subsequent tweet, Maricopa County wrote: “Honest question: When the Senate is paying $150K and outside groups who believe there was massive election fraud are putting up nearly $6 million toward the audit, who are Cyber Ninjas and subcontractors really working for?”

This is just more hyperbolic nonsense from the county. Just because outside groups/people are contributing funds towards the audit, doesn’t mean that it isn’t legitimate. The only thing this tells us is that there are people who want to know what really happened in Arizona’s 2020 election, and they are willing to put up their own money to ensure that the audit can take place and the American people can know for sure what happened.
