GOP Chairwoman Gives Update on Maricopa County Ballot Audit and Details of Push-back By Arizona State Senate Against DOJ Intervention

Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward gives an update on the ongoing Maricopa County ballot audit.  As Ms. Ward notes, the Democrats and federal Dept. of Justice are attempting to intervene in the audit at the same time the Maricopa election officials are admitting they did not have custody of the equipment used to count ballots.

Things are starting to look very sketchy about the former vote in Arizona.  The Arizona team shares: “America’s Audit continues as it faces unprecedented threats from Democrats, Department of Justice and mainstream media. Fed interference not warranted nor welcome in Arizona. Here’s the latest news from Arizona Chairwoman Kelli Ward as she makes clear we will finish the audit.”

Stunning Admission – Maricopa County, Arizona Election Officials Did NOT Have Control Over Ballot Counting Machines

In the latest update from Maricopa County, former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett explains that county election officials have admitted they did not control the ballot counting machines.  Additionally, Bennett explains the progress of the ballot audit and what the next steps are likely to be.

“Officials in Maricopa County, Arizona were forced to acknowledge they did not have any control over the voting machines during the 2020 elections. One America’s Christina Bobb spoke with Senate spokesman Ken Bennett to get the details.”

Important Maricopa Ballot Update – GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward Discusses Sec. Of State and DOJ Coordinating to Derail Audit

After the DOJ Civil Rights Division sends a letter to the Arizona state senate, Arizona Chairwoman Kelli Ward gives an update on the coordinated democrat shenanigans.

As Ward notes, the Democrat Arizona Secretary of State is coordinating with the DOJ in an effort to block the audit from continuing.   The auditors and the State senate need our support as the feds start to target the effort.  Unfortunately, I suspect that somewhere, sometime, at some point in this battle, the legal fight is going to end up at the U.S. Supreme Court.

DOJ Attempts to Get Involved in Arizona Ballot Audit – As Predicted DOJ Civil Rights Division Cites Lawfare Activists and Media Reports as Evidence of Concern

Everyone knew this was coming…. The Feds are attempting to get involved in the Maricopa County ballot audit.  The DOJ Civil Rights Division has sent a letter [pdf available here] to the Arizona State Senate claiming their review of Lawfare statements and media reports may show evidence of auditing issues that violate federal laws.

Last week a group of Lawfare activists [SEE HERE], including New York University Law School – which leads to Andrew Weissmann, asked the DOJ to get involved.

The ridiculous letter from the Biden DOJ goes on to cite media reports from the Washington Post as evidence to justify their involvement.

Remember, previously the DOJ narrative was that each state makes up its own election rules.  Now the DOJ is saying, falsely, that Arizona might be breaking federal laws.

Their first concern [as predicted] centers around ballot security.  Again, remember, the Maricopa County election board would not let the auditors use the county tabulation center [SEE HERE] so the ballots and equipment had to be moved to Veterans Memorial Coliseum (AZ State Fairgrounds).   Now the DOJ is citing that move as a potential issue for the security of the ballots and auditing procedures.

The first issue relates to a number of reports suggesting that the ballots, elections systems, and election materials that are the subject of the Maricopa County audit are no longer under the ultimate control of state and local elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors at an insecure facility, and are at risk of being lost, stolen, altered, compromised or destroyed.

Federal law creates a duty to safeguard and preserve federal election records. The Department is charged with enforcement of provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1960, 52 U.S.C. §§ 20701-20706. This statute requires state and local election officials to maintain, for twenty-two months after the conduct of an election for federal office, “all records and papers” relating to any “act requisite to voting in such election.”

The DOJ’s second issue is even more obtuse. They cite federal election law for voters rights, as the DOJ is worried that auditors will visit -and intimidate- people and places who have a record of multiple ballots from the same address or non residence:

The second issue relates to the Cyber Ninjas’ statement of work for this audit. Among other things, the statement of work indicates that the contractor has been working “with a number of individuals” to “identify voter registrations that did not make sense, and then knock on doors to confirm if valid voters actually lived at the stated address.” … these federal preservation and retention requirements for elections records is to “secure a more effective protection of the right to vote.”
The statement of work also indicates that the contractor will “select a minimum of three precincts” in Maricopa County “with a high number of anomalies” in order “to conduct an audit of voting history” and that voters may be contacted through a “combination of phone calls and physical canvassing” to “collect information of whether the individual voted in the election” in November 2020. Statement of Work at ¶ 5.1. This description of the proposed work of the audit raises concerns regarding potential intimidation of voters. The Department enforces a number of federal statutes that prohibit intimidation of persons for voting or attempting to vote. For example, Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act provides that “No person, whether acting under color of law or otherwise, shall intimidate, threaten, or coerce, or attempt to intimidate, threaten, or coerce any person for voting or attempting to vote, or intimidate, threaten, or coerce, or attempt to intimidate, threaten, or coerce any person for urging or aiding any person to vote or attempt to vote…”

Both issues are moot; but the DOJ effort to intervene in the audit should not be taken lightly.  Democrats in Arizona, the Lawfare group, the media and the DOJ are all working together to undermine the audit.

The Arizona State Senate should tell the DOJ to go pound sand; however, the DOJ effort is really an attempt to build a framework to undermine the results of the audit if/when fraud is uncovered.

The DOJ is making a concerted effort to assist the Biden administration in retaining the fraud.  That’s the bottom line.

REPORT: AZ Audit Chief Announcement

audit

There’s good news coming out from the big independent accounting of the 2020 election results. According to audit director Ken Bennett, everything is moving forward smoothly “despite continued attempts by Democrats to derail the process.”

Audit picking up steam

Former Arizona Secretary of State and current audit director Ken Bennett just announced that “Overnight we went from 20 counting locations on the floor to 46.”

He broke the good news on Sunday, adding that hopefully, “in the next day or two, they will be ready to fully staff that and then if we go to three shifts, which we are talking about, we will almost triple our throughput.” They have a lot of ballots to inspect.

Bennett isn’t saying a word about the findings so far, he’s holding that back until the audit is complete. “keeping the data and information secure is the main priority.”

What they’re doing in this stage of the investigation is “counting the ballots and evaluating them for irregularities such as folds or being marked with a Xerox machine as opposed to pen.”

Bennett isn’t happy at all that reporters from the mainstream networks keep “attempting to intimidate poll workers by taking photos of their license plates.”

The dedicated deplorables aren’t “stopping the hand recount until it’s complete.” It’s not the only contest going under the microscope either. It’s being reported that “another election audit is underway in a small New Hampshire town.”

The ‘Windham incident’

In New Hampshire, their state election officials “are struggling to choose a contractor to perform the election audit following the stunning revelations of the so-called Windham incident.” Selectman Bruce Breton relates that their state’s appointment of Mark Lindeman as chief election auditor is dangerous.

Lindeman, he notes, “has already criticized a similar audit in Arizona.” Deplorables there are “supporting the candidacy of Jovan Pulitzer who’s been vocal about election fraud.”

Windham’s local government is scheduled to meet Monday night to kick around the vote over who gets hired to do their audit. If Lindeman gets his way, the liberals will be doing jumping jacks, knowing that he’ll turn a blind eye to even the clearest evidence the election was compromised.

Every day, more and more patriotic nationalists are complaining about life in a post-constitutional America.

No matter what happens in the Arizona audit, the public is stuck with the accepted official result. Even if the Biden administration is illegitimate, the Palace is fully in control of the Pentagon.

All deplorables can do is continue to insist on election integrity and transparency. The 2022 mid-terms will be the next big test of whether we can pull back from the brink of the New World Order globalist takeover.

Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward Provides Weekend Update on Maricopa County Ballot Audit

The Arizona chair of the GOP Kelli Ward provides a video update of the ballot audit in Maricopa County.  Chairwoman Ward notes May 14th was the original target date for the completion of the ballot audit per venue agreement with Veterans Memorial Coliseum.  If the auditors need more time, the audit may move to a small venue or pause for a few days to permit previously scheduled events to take place.

Bottom line: despite the efforts of the Democrats, leftist groups and leftist lawyers, to block, stall and impede the ballot audit process, the audit continues….

CNN Sends Narrative Engineers to Maricopa County Arizona to Frame Extremist Narrative

Things are escalating in Maricopa County Arizona as the first week of the ballot audit comes to a close.  After democrats lost several court challenges; and after a state judge affirms the right of the Arizona Senate to conduct an audit; CNN has dispatched their hit-team to document the workers and frame an extremist narrative. [SEE HERE]

The CNN camera crews worked earnestly to get election audit volunteers on camera; the objective appears to be the familiar threats and intimidation tactics carried out by the news and narrative company in the past. A previous ground report from a local volunteer sent to the Treehouse includes:

[…] “Today law enforcement/security told us there was a vehicle or 2 about two blocks away with a long angle lens taking pictures (he thought) of the people and (I bet) license plates. We saw the one vehicle as we pulled out but couldn’t see in it. Anyway, I expected this. We are dealing with people who have no lowest. It’s getting ugly in the media now; just as usual they start their smear campaign.”

[…] “There are so many lies in the media … They neglect to say this is the first time this has ever been done to this detail and this scale, and thankfully, certain procedures are being altered to fit this reality. Smoother everyday. Real hardworking, earnest people counting, and observing on the shifts we worked. Audit staff seems good.”

“I don’t know how the counters could cheat – the vote is verified by 3 people in addition to the staff who put the ballot on the podium. Their numbers all have to match and the observer can see the ballot and where the counter marks the tally sheet … there’s no way they could cheat-they’d all have to be in on it at the table, but the observer can see the ballot!”

Twitter Attempts To Discredit Arizona Election Audit Underway In Maricopa County

Twitter published an editorialized trending topic under its “News” section Thursday on the Arizona audit of the November election in Maricopa County, where the state Senate has ordered an independent review of the 2.1 million ballots cast.

The audit now underway caught the ire of Democrats and legacy media outlets who are sowing doubt on its necessity or legitimacy as state lawmakers demand the independent audit be conducted by an outside firm.

“Why some officials have raised concerns over the ongoing Republican-commissioned audit of election results in Arizona,” reads the Twitter headline above its trending topic. Users are led down a storyline constructed by tweets with links to articles from the Associated Press, New York Times, and CNN.

All sell the narrative that a thorough review of the results presents a dangerous threat to election integrity, and henceforth American democracy.

Under “What you need to know,” the online platform features four bullet points to dispel the need for an independent audit commissioned by the state legislature. It includes a critique of the contracted firm’s credibility complemented by the results of prior reviews by election officials who ordered their own audit after the election.

The county, according to AZCentral, “hand counted a statistically significant sampling of ballots and conducted two logic and accuracy tests of voting machines.”

No problems were reportedly found by initial reviews according to the local paper, which also pulled a statistically significant sample of ballots for further validation.

In a state with a reputation for remarkable accuracy in ballot counting, however, Arizona Senate lawmakers have concluded the ongoing audit is necessary to reassure voters who are already skeptical of the results. President Joe Biden became the first Democrat to carry the state’s electoral votes since 1996, capturing Arizona over President Donald Trump by less than 10,000 votes.

“When you’ve got half of the people who do not trust the electoral system anymore, rightly or wrongly, and they have questions, who is responsible for answering these questions?” Republican Arizona Senate President Karen Finn told KTAR News, a local outlet on Tuesday as reported by the Washington Post. “This has been the sole thing, to get answers, so that if we have any problems, we can fix them.”

Finn did not respond to The Federalist’s request for an interview.

The sponsored Twitter feed goes on the highlight Arizona’s Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs blasting lawmakers for their vigilant demands of a thorough ballot review as jeopardizing faith in elections.

Absent from Twitter’s trending topic was any Republican defense of the audit, as the platform editorializes trends to serve as an extended arm of legacy media.

The Arizona audit launched last week can be live-streamed here, and is expected to be complete within two months.

Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward Gives and Update on Maricopa Ballot Audit

Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward gives an update on the Maricopa County ballot audit that is ongoing.  As Ms. Ward notes there are many leftists demanding to know who is helping to pay for this audit; yet simultaneously those same Democrats do not talk about who is funding the hundreds of left-wing lawyers that are attempting to stop the audit.  Good point.
