Sparks are continuing to fly in Arizona surrounding the audit. As the process continues, Republicans are now fighting amongst themselves.
The fight is continuing between the GOP-led Senate and Democrat leadership in the state, with many conservatives raising questions about why the left is working so hard to stop the audit. Sparks have been flying since the audit was announced, with the left frantically trying to stonewall, and the right voicing concerns about the questionable results of the 2020 election.
Maricopa County is one of the most concerning areas when it comes to fraud, as the numbers just don’t add up. Somehow, we’re supposed to believe that Joe Biden beat Donald Trump by more than 45,000 votes in the county, despite the fact that, as of October, registered Republicans outnumbered Democrats in the county by more than 100,000. The votes from Maricopa County, which contains approximately 60% of the state’s residents, played a big role in Biden’s victory in the state by just 10,000 votes.
Democrats have made many desperate attempts to stop the audit, even taking the Senate to court to prevent them from obtaining election records and equipment. That attempt failed, and now they are on to a new tactic: refusing to provide passwords and access to computers, routers, and other equipment. The Senate is now threatening to issue subpoenas for the information.
Former President Donald Trump released a statement which angered RINOs and led to an internal argument within the GOP.
“The entire Database of Maricopa County in Arizona has been DELETED! This is illegal and the Arizona State Senate, who is leading the Forensic Audit, is up in arms. Additionally, seals were broken on the boxes that hold the votes, ballots are missing, and worse,” Trump’s statement read.
Newsmax reports: “The most recent flare-up ignited when Fann sent a letter Wednesday to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors complaining of the county’s failure to comply with the first round of subpoenas. Auditors also had discovered problems regarding a chain of custody with ballots and evidence of database files being deleted from the election management computer.”
It is likely that this information is what was behind Trump’s statement. Though he may have misunderstood, this information is seriously concerning. Of course, RINOs in Arizona — and around the country — don’t actually care about the underlying problem, they just want to get on the Democrats’ good side by attacking Trump.
Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, a Republican, went ballistic on Twitter in reaction to Trump’s statement, calling it “unhinged” and “insane lies.”
Wow. This is unhinged. I’m literally looking at our voter registration database on my other screen. Right now.
We can’t indulge these insane lies any longer. As a party. As a state. As a country.
This is as readily falsifiable as 2+2=5. If we don’t call this out… pic.twitter.com/5tDy1wsZg6

Despite the RINOs’ attacks and the Democrats’ stonewalling, the audit will go on. As questions about the election continue to be debated, polls show that Trump isn’t the only one who is concerned about the results of the election. A poll conducted by Arizona public affairs firm HighGround Inc. has revealed that 78% of Republicans in Arizona believe that fraud was a factor in Joe Biden‘s victory over Donald Trump. These results are also backed up by national polls showing a significant amount of support from Republicans for the claim of election fraud.
