Democrats fight ‘sham audit’ in Arizona, saying Republicans aim to justify voter suppression
A GOP-led audit of the 2020 vote in Maricopa County is “fomenting the big lie that the election was stolen,” the head of the Arizona Democratic Party told Insider.
Republicans selected a firm to conduct the audit, Cyber Ninjas, that has no experiencing counting votes.
The company is led by a man who promoted false claims of election fraud in 2020.
It’s a “sham audit,” Raquel Terán, chair of the Arizona Democratic Party, says of the vote count underway this week in Maricopa County. Initiated by Republicans and led by a firm that has no prior experience handling ballots, the $150,000 in taxpayer is being used to perpetrate a fraud, she told Insider — “fomenting the big lie that the election was stolen.”
Anti democracy big lie loser republicans get more vicious and insane every day.
