The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors and the county’s Soros-backed sheriff called for the Arizona Senate to end the 2020 election audit “for the good of the country.”
Following a unanimous public vote to end the audit on Monday, BOS chairman Jack Sellers told the media that he’s had enough of the “grift disguised as an audit.”
“We will be reviewing a response to the state Senate president’s attempt at legitimizing a grift disguised as an audit,” Sellers said in his opening statement.
“I will not be responding to any more requests from this sham process. Finish what you’re calling an audit and be ready to defend your report in a court of law. We all look forward to it.”
“It’s really up to them, at this point, if they want to continue this,” Sellers added, referring to the Senate.
Republican and Maricopa County BOS vice-chair Bill Gates suggested that voters may not believe the results of the 2022 midterm election if an audit is conducted now.
“Now it is time to say, ‘enough is enough.’ It is time to push back on the big lie,” Gates said. “Otherwise, we are not going to be able to move forward and have an election in 2022 [where] we can all believe the results.”
The supervisors were flanked by Sheriff Paul Penzone, whom leftist billionaire George Soros donated $2 million to during the 2020 race against former Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The board in a Monday press conference said they sent a 14-page report to Senate President Karen Fann calling for an end to the audit, but Fann claimed she hadn’t received that letter.
The letter itself claimed that the IT group tasked with conducting the audit, called the Cyber Ninjas, were “in way over their heads.”
“We implore you to recognize the obvious truth,” the letter said. “Your ‘auditors’ are in way over their heads. They do not have the experience necessary to conduct an audit of an election. It is inevitable that they will arrive at questionable conclusions. It is time to end this.”
The letter was a response to an invitation by Fann to answer questions to the Senate on Tuesday about non-compliance with legislative subpoenas, chain of custody and ballot anomalies, and deleted databases; an invitation the board refused.
“We will not be attending. We will not be responding to any additional inquiries from your ‘auditors,’” the letter stated, adding that the auditors were “not real.”
“It is time to end this. For the good of the Senate, for the good of the Country and for the good of the Democratic institutions that define us as Americans,” the Supervisors concluded.
