The strange saga of the 2020 election continues to ramble on in several parts of this great nation of ours, but most notably in Maricopa County, Arizona, where an ongoing and controversial audit of the results is making headlines again.
The audit, which is being conducted by a private corporation hired by “Stop The Steal” operatives, has faced a great deal of resistance thus far, and not only from the Democrats who are afraid of what may be discovered. Other Republicans have been jumping off the bandwagon as well, many after seeing just what was going on for themselves.
The Republican chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors on Monday rejected a new subpoena from Arizona state Senate Republicans, calling their partisan ballot review an “adventure in never-never land.”
“It is now August of 2021. The election of November 2020 is over,” Jack Sellers, who leads the board that oversees elections in the county, wrote in a scathing letter. “If you haven’t figured out that the election in Maricopa County was free, fair, and accurate yet, I’m not sure you ever will.”
He added: “The reason you haven’t finished your ‘audit’ is because you hired people who have no experience and little understanding of how professional elections are run.”
The audit’s conclusion could coincide roughly with the date of August 13th, which was originally suggested as a possible “reinstatement” date for former President Donald Trump. This confluence has federal officials concerned about potential far-right domestic terror, should Trump not be “reinstated” amid a backdrop of angst over the findings of this audit.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has suggested that the August 13th date is no longer valid, but that hasn’t deterred much of the discussion on social media among hardcore Trump conspiracists.
