One tongue-in-the-cheek suggestion for the inexperienced Arizona ballot audit company, Cyber Ninja, caught our attention. The employees have been holding ballots up to the light looking for bamboo paper, because the rumor is that an Asian group dumped 140,000 ballots into the Arizona mix. Apparently, it believes anything from these countries would contain bamboo. The suggestion was rather than go to all that effort, why not import some pandas and just see which ballots they eat?
The company auditing the 2020 Arizona presidential election ballots landed with all the force of a lost puppy. During the company’s first audit, its employees left the original Maricopa County ballots laying around and the computers unattended. What could go wrong?
Since the organization, headed by a conspiracy theorist, hired only Republican-friendly staff, we would imagine they might want to try harder to at least give the appearance of expertise. But no, it just upped its ante and demanded the machines’ hard drives.
That equipment contains the people of Arizona’s private information. Arizona Secretary of State, Katie Hobbs, does not even have the Social Security numbers the group wanted, and she would have to seek them out in another software system. But that is not going to happen.
Neither is the group’s intention to go to voters’ homes and question them about their votes. That is against the law.
This is a huge disaster waiting to happen, according to The Atlantic. Hobbs tweeted:
‘“There’s no way that what’s going on right now can result in any kind of reliable or valid outcome in terms of a real audit,” Arizona Sec. of State Katie Hobbs says about the GOP-led audit in Maricopa County of the 2020 election.’
A retiring Representative Chuck Grassley (R-IA) held firm to the party line:
‘I can’t believe all the hassle w the Arizona senate just checking things out re: election audit Makes me suspicious somebody has something to hide Transparency brings accountability’
Twitter world went nuts over this tweet. Take a look at some of our favorite responses below:
