Arizona secretary of state doubles down on claims Maricopa County audit is being mishandled

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs is stepping up her claims that a Republican-backed audit of the 2020 election results in the state’s Maricopa County is being mishandled.

According to the Washington Examiner, the Democrat leader claims “one of her experts” spotted on Tuesday “a Wi-Fi router connected to audit servers” — an accusation that, if true, could mean the review has been compromised.

“There’s no way to ensure that ballot images, vote counts, [and] perhaps voter data weren’t connected to external networks or the internet,” Hobbs wrote in a tweet, according to the Examiner.

The Twitter-feud continues

The Examiner said a Twitter account claiming to represent the audit, Maricopa Arizona Audit, took to the platform with an attack of its own against Hobbs, declaring: “No wireless was ever enabled.”

The audit team has argued that it needs access to Maricopa County router passwords to review materials as part of the review, but Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel says handing over the information “could jeopardize the security of law enforcement data,” as the Examiner notes.

“Give them answers”

Speaking with The Daily Show this week, Hobbs doubled down on her stance that the audit is all but fraudulent.

“I know that it’s comical to watch what’s happening here in Arizona,” she told the late-night show, according to the Arizona Republic‘s Bill Goodykoontz. “But I think it’s also important to note that this is also dangerous to our democracy,” she charged.

“We saw how dangerous the post-election misinformation was,” Hobbs added. “This is a group of people who are clearly partisan. It is headed by a company that has no auditing or election experience. And they’re making up the rules as they go along.”

Republican backers of the audit say it “will help lawmakers identify loopholes and fix problems,” according to the Wall Street Journal

“When almost half of the voters say they lack confidence and have questions about the integrity of our system, it’s time for someone to step up and give them answers,” Arizona state Senate president Karen Fann (R) told the Journal last month.

The audit could be complete as soon as May 23, the Examiner said. But reports indicate that whatever it turns up, it won’t change the outcome of the 2020 presidential race, as the results in Arizona were already certified by the state.

      Every month I am earning online more than $16,500 by doing a very simple online job from my home. By doing this in my part time I was able to save enough to buy me a new car in just a few months. This is so freaking easy that everyone should try it. Start making dollars online today by following instructions on this website.

  1. I would very much like to know why you allow people to advertise their money-making scams on your website, i.e. the ones from “Wasooked” and “Belinda Webster” above??? Do they pay you to advertise? This reader and commenter finds it to be very annoying and distracting from the reason I come to your website, and think fraudulent things like this should not be allowed! PLEASE — STOP!! 🙁

    1. I get so sick and tired of seeing these stupid comments that it makes me want to barf. And yes, I wonder if they are receiving some kind of compensation by allowing these idiots to put comments on her that have nothing to do with the issue.

  3. We all know that the Democrats lie all the time & then come back & say prove it. I think if one of the SoS observer saw a router connected to an audit server, she should have taken a picture – then they can prove it, but since they don’t make it easy – it ends up being a controversy!

  4. Why in hell would you allow a wireless router to be connected to anything related to the counting of votes? Also why were any cell phoness allowed in the vote counting area, as these can provide connections to the internet? There are monitoring tools to detect these issues available! If networks are needed to function, then why weren’t there firewalls installed?
    Why are these liberals so afraid of being audited, and providing provable answers to legitimate questions?

    1. The reason why is because they can’t answer these question (at least truthfully) because they will expose their fraud. The hypocrisy of it all is that when the allegation was made that the Dominion machines were connected to the internet, the Dems denied this allegation. Now, it is the Dems who are making the allegation that they somehow say a router connected to the internet. These are evil demented people with absolutely no shame.

  5. The Dems keep claiming they are worried about losing our Democracy!
    First of all we are a Republic!!!
    Second – they already killed any Democracy we may have had . Everyday gets worse under their administration. I can’t believe that sone people still do not get it. Old Joe is surly not doing this alone! Obama’s third term so he can finish what he started!! The swamp is very deep and evil!

    1. And were it not for President trump, we wouldn’t have know the depth of the deep state-the DOJ,CIA and FBI. They are all controlled by the Dems. Now, I will say that it is not the rank-and-file employees. the can only do what their superior tells them to do and herein lies the problem. If Prresident Trump is successful in getting re-elected in 2024, you can guarantee that every head of each department will roll. Then, and only then, can we begin to have any trust in our government?

  6. These people are trying every trick they can come up with to stop this audit from continuing, because they know their fraudulence will be exposed and some, if not all, of them will likely end up in prison.

  7. Of course the democrats will do everything possible to discredit the audit because they’re deathly afraid of what it will turn up! Don’t let them stop the audit!

    1. Did you see the post where a liberal Arizona judge just ruled that the Arizona audit will continue. I couldn’t believe my eyes but it was true. What changed all of a sudden. You think it might just be with all the fraud that is being exposed that a liberal judge would rule against the Dems? I can’t think of anything else that would lead a liberal judge to rule for the GOP.

  8. IF this audit shows FRAUD as I am sure it will be the reactions of the Democrats, then ALL the swing states should be audited in the same manner. IF they come up with the same FRAUD r4esult then the Supreme Court should step in and hear this as TREASON against the United States people. Investigation can show WHO is guilty and they should face the toughest penalty. This was a strike at the heart of our nation by the Democrats and they have cheated and plan to make the cheating permanent thru HR1. IF this group of cheating thugs succeed then the USA is done. We need to stop this democrat push to dominate our government and leave over half the population in the dark. That my fellow Americans is called a DICTATORSHIP!!

    1. As a Certified paralegal, I can tell you, that if all of the swing states conduct individual audits, that this case can be filed in a Federal Court under the Federal Statute (23 U.S.C. Section 1983). This statute allows any individual (especially the President of the United States) to petition the court for “redress of grievance.” Under this kind of Civil action, “discovery can be obtained (which includes all forensic data, vote totals, expert witnesses, and much more). The individual who files the civil action has the burden of proof (more probable or less probable) that a violation occurred. This discovery is where that individual will prove his case. Under Section 1983, any civil case can be taken to the United States Supreme Court (if it fails at the federal level) and all of the evidence will be presented to the court at that time. We must be patient and wait for the audits to conclude, and at that point make a decision as to what avenue is the best to take.

  9. What is the Desperatecrat Arizona Secretary of State so Terrified of? Why is she so afraid of a COMPLETE. HONEST 100% AUDIT of all Maricopa County votes to verify they were all LEGAL votes that followed ALL current voting laws? What is she doing her best to hide?

  10. The government paid attorney claims the election audit is fraudulent. Why would she say that if she had nothing to hide? I’ve learned that guilty people will say ANYTHING to cover their A**. I suggest the attorney be investigated, FULLY, going back at least a year, and everything she said or did be put under the strictest scrutiny.

  11. I’m making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is where i started…………..—->>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  12. Not to worry! Michael Lindell (The pillow man) has the whole election recorded in a video called “Absolute Proof”! It clearly shows ALL the fraudulence and where it happened! It’s only a matter of having our Supreme Court view it, which they have refused to do thus far. My question: Why?! Have they been “bought” by the Democratic Party too? Please pray that God will protect Mr. Lindell and ALL this truth can come to light! President Trump won the election overwhelmingly and he should be sitting in the Oval Office right now…NOT Joe Biden, who is totally destroying America each and every day! Pray also, that God will intervene in this blatant theft and rescue us from all the destruction that is occurring so rapidly! May we truly become “One nation under God” and worthy of His blessings, as our forefathers intended.
