A massive finding has come out of Arizona as state Senate President Karen Fann revealed there may be a major issue with the vote tally from the 2020 general election.
Fann said that the number of ballots “do not match” the ballot totals documented by Maricopa County.
Fann added that while she’s not certain exactly how large the discrepancy is just yet, she is certain the numbers do not line up – indicating something major could shift once the numbers are released.
When asked how far off she was told the counts are, she responded, “I do not know. They have not told me the number.”
The audit, which has faced numerous delays and attacks from the left who tried desperately to stop it, is expected to have its results released at the end of July or early August.
“We are finishing up — the vendor is finishing up what we call the aggregation: double-checking the spreadsheets against the blue tally sheets, against the scans they did on the ballots,” Fann said.
After the possibility of a count discrepancy was suggested, Fann said that’s when lawmakers moved to “get a couple of our own independent machines in, not Dominion’s, separate ones, and do our own independent — and all we’re doing is just counting the number of ballots. It’s a paper-counting machine is all it does.”
“That will help us give like a third check-and-balance to see if those numbers are closer to the vendors’ numbers or Maricopa County’s or they all three could be right on target.”
House Democrats, meanwhile, announced on Thursday that they would be beginning an investigation into private vote auditing company Cyber Ninjas, according to NBC News.
Members of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors have also questioned Cyber Ninjas. Fann has been quick to say that Cyber Ninjas hasn’t been alone in analyzing the data.
“I’m confident because it’s not just them,” Fann said, referring to Cyber Ninjas. “Everybody keeps just counting on them when actually they are working with a number of other contractors that have experience in audits and in their expertise in their own fields. … This is a joint effort.”
Back in May, the Biden Department of Justice (DOJ) for some reason felt the need to try and shut down election audit efforts in Maricopa County prior to its completion – suggesting that the recount was somehow illegal.
Penned by Pamela S. Karlan, who heads the DOJ’s civil rights division, the DOJ sent a letter suggesting “that the recount of nearly 2.1 million ballots in Maricopa County by a private contractor may not comply with federal law, which requires that ballots be securely maintained for 22 months following a federal election.”
“We have a concern that Maricopa County election records, which are required by federal law to be retained and preserved, are no longer under the ultimate control of elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors, and are at risk of damage or loss,” wrote Karlan.
A judge, however, shut down the DOJ’s attempt to halt the audit, ruling that, “The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters.”
Now that the audit has been completed and officials have confirmed that there was in fact a discrepancy in the vote tally, perhaps we know exactly why Biden instructed his DOJ to shut down the audit before it could get this far.
