Donald Trump’s racket of having Cyber Ninjas audit the Maricopa County, Arizona ballots is a joke. The magician’s stage looks more like the Keystone Cops than the serious, real audits after the 2020 presidential election. At last, Republicans stood up and said “Enough!” But not the Republicans we had expected.
The county’s Board of Supervisors wrote a letter that publicly condemned the state Senate’s additional audit. They sent the letter to state Republican senators on Monday when these county-level officials called out the stunt for what it has been, a “sham.”
The virgin auditors Cyber Ninjas have discredited the ridiculous and wrong-headed claims of election fraud. In other words, Donald Trump has been trying to wreck the very basis of our nation’s government, our voting system. All because he cannot bear to think of himself as what he became — the world’s biggest loser.
The board’s letter told the GOP senators in no uncertain terms that the board will no longer cooperate in the despotic act. Members of the board exclaimed that the sham audit turned Arizona into the world’s “laughingstock:”
‘You are photographing ballots contrary to the laws that the Senate helped enact, and you are sending those images to unidentified places and people. You have repeatedly lost control of your Twitter account, which has tweeted things that appear to be the rantings of a petulant child—not the serious statements of a serious audit.’
The auditors’ techniques were questionable at best. They held ballots under blue lights searching for bamboo, because the conspiracy theory they were following suggested China had dumped 40,000 votes into the county. And as everyone knows, anything from China has bamboo in it. Right. They deleted databases, left ballots and computers unattended, and performed their “grift disguised as an audit.”
The Republican Chair of the Board Jack Sellers spoke at Monday’s board meeting, according to The Washington Post:
‘I will not be responding to any more requests from this sham process. Finish your audit and be ready to defend what you’re finding in a court of law.’
Trump invited a large group to his Mar-a-Lago resort. There he railed at Arizona’s election process, lying that his strange little Cyber Ninjas had uncovered fraud. The company actually believed that a group of Antifa planned an attack on them, so much so that they executed a reaction plan. The ex-president also indicated he would sic the group onto other states, according to The Huffington Post:
‘Let’s see what they find. I wouldn’t be surprised if they found thousands and thousands and thousands of votes.’
‘After that, we’ll watch Pennsylvania, and you watch Georgia, then you’re going to watch Michigan and Wisconsin, and you’re watching New Hampshire.’
