Serious Issues Found In Audit
With about 500,000 ballots now processed in the Maricopa County, Ariz., forensic audit, the GOP-controlled Arizona Senate has found several significant discrepancies and issues related to the county’s handling of paper ballots and election data. In a sharply worded letter to Maricopa County, the Senate called for officials to address these concerns at a live-streamed meeting at the Arizona State Capitol on Tuesday.
GOP chair Kelli Ward says the forensic audit is currently in pause until May 24, since the arena was previously reserved for other events. “There’s still a lot of work to be done when the audit picks back up,” she says. “At the present rate of counting, there’s probably at least another month to go.” She added not to worry, because the ballots and machines will be under 24/7 security. Here’s more with Ward on the audit, including her dismay with how the mainstream media is handling coverage of the issues.
