They filed a lawsuit to block the Maricopa County election audit. State law already requires county boards of election to perform a statistical recount of 2% of ballots cast or 2,000 votes – whichever is fewer – before results are certified in each election to ensure voting machines were working properly and results are accurate. State procedures often include testing and certification of voting systems, required auditable logs, and software checks, such as logic and accuracy tests, to ensure ballots are properly counted before election results are made official. We conducted an election, what went right, what went wrong, and what are we going to do to fix it? The term “certification” as it pertains to election results denotes that the election was conducted in accordance with acceptable procedures. The purpose of an audit is to make sure that the election was administered properly, that is that the equipment functioned correctly and counting procedures were done properly.
Bennett said staffing from temp agencies should be in place to up the number of counting tables to 46 on Monday, more than doubling the number of counters from 60 to 138 per shift. Who is paying for all this counting? As for whether he is the unnamed consultant who allegedly paid DeMuro bribes, the former congressman isn’t willing to discuss it. It’s too bad that this attitude isn’t more widely held. To understand why the rabbit hole opened here, and why it’s gotten so deep, it helps to understand the terrain. I don’t know why in 2021, this is not more commonplace, where if people have issues they can have their answers. Fairbanks seems to have suggested the ban is permanent. The ban comes one day after The Gateway Pundit published never-before-seen footage that appeared to show election officials in Michigan receiving truckloads of ballots long past the deadline. It is unclear whether Hoft’s suspension remains temporary, as Twitter now provides language about Gateway Pundit’s Twitter ban that is identical to the language used when Twitter permanently bans an account.

TGP’S Jordan Conradson spoke to Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano to hear what he thinks of the historic Arizona full forensic audit.
Mastriano: Yeah, if we do an audit in Pennsylvania. Senator Doug Mastriano: Myself, Sen. Meanwhile, State Sen. Steve Santarsiero (D-Bucks) has introduced legislation that would give Pennsylvania counties more time to count votes. The takeaway for Pennsylvania and the rest of the nation is that our elections need to be secure. This is a model for any audit in any nation or the world. We need to do an audit and this is the model. Yet some election security advocates worry that election systems still aren’t as secure as they need to be given the looming threat from Russia and other adversaries – and they say CISA could do far more to help. Ms. Hobbs, the secretary of state, asked the state attorney general, Mark Brnovich, a Republican, to investigate the Senate’s handling of the procedure, citing a lack of transparency about security of ballots. Sprouse said it wasn’t until the following morning when he found out his mail was stolen and he checked the security recording. 4 I then provided a screen shot of an alleged AP (associated press) clipping that was found in Onewire.from the DHS confirming the election audit sting that was posted on 4 Nov. Lastly I provided a link to a video of live vote changing on CNN election coverage.
“CISA is responsible for infrastructure and cybersecurity, not the voting system, which would include mail-in ballots and all kinds of other matters which are clearly outside of their equity,” said the DHS official. The episode attracted the attention of then-President Donald Trump before the Nov. 3 election, who said it demonstrated that mail-in voting invited fraud. Voters over the age of 65, voters who are blind, and voters whose driving privileges have been terminated due to a physical or mental disability can obtain an identification card for free. Elections experts have expressed concern about the firms selected to be involved, including Florida-based Cyber Ninjas, which is led by Doug Logan, who “not only harbors conspiratorial beliefs about the 2020 election, but has shared conspiracies about Dominion election equipment, the exact equipment he has been hired to audit,” according to Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat. This is the level of technology that we should have. They noted that the county does not digitally conduct adjudication – when election workers need to review a ballot to determine its intent – as the report alleges. “It is our job to make sure those laws are followed to the T, that they are always above reproach, and if we find any mistakes, we need to fix it and or report it,” she told the outlet.
