An update has just been released about the 2020 presidential election audit that is taking place in Arizona.
The Washington Examiner reports that the Arizona Senate is expected to receive a report from the election auditors in the very near future.
The update was provided by Arizona Senate president Karen Fann.
“Confirming audit companies are preparing the draft report to present to the senate team,” Fann tweeted on Monday. “Senate team will then review for accuracy and clarity for final report which will be released publicly.”
Fann’s message came in response to another that warned people about a Tweet claiming that the report will be delivered to the Arizona Senate next week.
Along with Fann, Wendy Rogers, another Republican state senator, also tweeted, “PRELIM AUDIT REPORT COMING IN SEVERAL DAYS.”
So, it would appear that the Arizona Senate could be receiving the audit report any day now. It seems, though, that the public won’t get access to it until the Senate decides to give the public access to it, which might take a little while.
What we are talking about here is the election audit of Maricopa County, Arizona, that is being led by Arizona Republicans.
Following claims of fraud in the 2020 election, Arizona Republicans launched the audit in order to get to the bottom of what happened and in order to restore faith in America’s elections. Democrats have stood staunchly opposed to the effort, claiming that they already conducted audits and found no wrongdoing. They also claim that the Republicans’ audit is little more than a partisan affair.
The auditors recently finished their job, or, more accurately stated, they did what they could do for now. The auditors actually told the Arizona Senate that, in order to proceed, they need more information.
Arizona’s Senate has issued subpoenas to Maricopa County officials and Dominion Voting Systems for the information that the audit team needs, but both have refused to comply. Now, the Arizona attorney general is investigating whether these Dominion and Maricopa County officials violated the law by refusing to comply.
But, it appears that the audit report will be coming any day now. Not only will it be interesting to see those results, but it will also be interesting to see whether other states decide to follow Arizona’s lead by conducting an audit of their own. We’ll see.
