Arizona Election Audit: Final Report Released in Maricopa County Audit
As I happened to mention recently, the audit of the 2020 Presidential election has still been going on in Maricopa County, Arizona.
However, it looks as though last week, another portion of it has been completed and the findings were announced.
Based on the report and the announcement from the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, there was no evidence to suggest that any issues occurred during the election as far as the actual data goes.
According to Fox 10 Phoenix,
Their report said that the computers and ballot-counting machines in the county’s ballot tabulation center were never connected to the internet. In addition, there was no sign that any of the computer equipment in the county’s Office of Enterprise Technology, which provides computer support for all the huge county departments, was compromised.
In both cases, there was no evidence of “data deletion, data purging, data overwriting, or other destruction of evidence or obstruction of the audit,” the report said.
The county has repeatedly said since the November 2020 election that it was free and fair and that its systems and equipment were secure.
Gates repeated that on Wednesday and said the report from Shadegg was the latest in a long string of evidence that showed that the election was well run.
“Whenever impartial, independent, and competent people have examined the County’s election practices, they have found no reason to doubt the integrity of those practices,” said Gates, who is a Republican. “The Board of Supervisors remains committed to free and fair elections that conform to federal and state laws.”
As far as this audit goes in Arizona, I think that we can chalk this one up as a loss for team Trump. I hate to say it, but I think that the Democrats were able to finagle their way into making sure that the damning evidence was destroyed or not found.
Keep in mind that this announcement came from the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors which is a biased group of anti-Trumpers so the announcement really doesn’t come as a surprise.
